{ HARI-KATHA IN KULGACHIA }
Auspicious Invocation

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Kulgachia Gram, Howrah District
6 May 2018, part 1

 

We have assembled here by a great fortune to speak about the Lord. It is not a cloudy day that is a bad day—a bad day is the day when there is no Hari-katha (discussions about the Lord).

It is necessary to hear Hari-katha and practise every day. Even if you are not able to practise, you still must practise, still must listen to Hari-katha. "I chanted today, tomorrow I will not chant"—not like that. You ate today, you will eat tomorrow too—you eat every day, you go to the bathroom every day, and you must do your service every day too. You must serve Govinda every day, we have no other way.

I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of Acharyas, Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to Mahabhava, Srimati Radharani.

Again and again I offer my obeisance unto Vrnda Devi, who is known as Tulasi Devi and Satyavati, who is most dear to Krishna, and who bestows devotion to Krishna upon us.

Having offered obeisance to one's initiating Guru, to the Gurus who have taught one the meaning of the Bhagavat, and to all the authors of Vedic literature, who are the Gurus of the entire world, proclaim "Jay!"

All glory to the lotus feet of Sri Guru, Sri Gaurasundar, Sri Sri Gandharva-Govindasundar, and all of Their associates!

"All glories to Nrisinghadev! All glories to Nrisinghadev, who is the Lord of Prahlad Maharaj and, like a honeybee, is always engaged in beholding the lotus face of the goddess of fortune."

ito nrsimha parato nrsimho
yato yato yami tato nrsimhah
bahir nrsimho hrdaye nrsimho
nrsimham adim saranam prapadye

"Lord Nrisingha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Nrisingha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Nrisingha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge."
