I am very glad that you come every year, and that every year you make the effort thinking, "How can I come for the parikrama every year?" Perhaps, you put aside one-two or ten rubles every day to save for your plane fare to come for the parikrama. I am very happy that you come. May Krishna bless you.

You are all in my heart, there is no doubt about it because we all come from the same family. We are not a separate family—we are all from the same family. You may be living in Russia, I may be living in India, that is not a question, but thinking, "You are Russian, I am Indian," or "He is Indian, we are Russian" is not Krishna consciousness. We all come from the same place and we all must go to the same place—that is Krishna consciousness.

I pray to everybody, and I pray to the Lord, I pray to Gurudev, that you can come for this Nabadwip Dham parikrama, for the Vrindavan, Govardhan parikramas every year.

Tomorrow you are going to do the parikrama in Ekachakra, after that you are going to Puri. I am very happy about that. Everything is good, but only I pray to Lord Jagannath, "When will the revolution come and Western devotee will be able to enter the temple of Jagannath?" They can only see Jagannath during the Ratha-yatra time, it is very rare and also fortunate—on this day Jagannath distributes His mercy all over the world. If you can, try to come at the Ratha-yatra time. I want your association at that time also. Come to India at that time.

Stri-Sanga and Jiva-Himsa
Two of the four regulative principles: 'You must avoid stri-sanga and purush-sanga, and from today, do not eat and do not cook any fish, meat, poultry, eggs, onion, garlic, or masoor dal. Take prasad.'

 

Gaya Gora madhur svare
'Your life is ending, but you have not served Hrsikes. Bhakti Vinod advises: once relish His Name's nectar.'

You may not know so many scriptures, but if you are gentle, have good qualities, you have sympathy, love, and affection for others, then you can be a proper manager of a temple.
