Cherished Hope

I have given this lecture one day ahead actually because I will be even busier tomorrow with the service of protecting Gurudev's mission so I will not be able to get time. You know I have to do so many things.

My heart, my mind, my everything is saying, "When will I go to Nabadwip Chaitanya Saraswat Math temple?" I will make the temple good again—now the temple is very dirty, they have cut some trees, sold cows and they have even sold the fans from every room as well as the air conditioners from the few rooms that had it...

It is not a problem for me if I go there. I want to enter the temple again... When I joined the temple, there was almost nothing there, there were no buildings except only Srila Sridhar Maharaj's samadhi mandir which was not fully completed, a Western brahmachari guesthouse and a little brahmachari guesthouse along with Srila Sridhar Maharaj's bhajan kutir and the old prasadam hall. That is all that was there, nothing else. Later, so many buildings, so much construction has happened.

One year I could not enter the temple but I am thinking this problem will be resolved within a few days and I will again be able to enter the temple. That is my prayer and hope to Gurudev.

Jay Srila Guru Maharaj ki jay.

Parikrama of Sri Govardhan
'How do we do parikrama? Govardhan is like a peacock, our temple is near Manasa Ganga, at the mouth of Govardhan, and we start the parikrama from the tail and do half portion one day, and the second half the next day.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Lord, Your lotus face, which is encircled by locks of soft black hair tinged with red, is kissed again and again by Mother Yasoda, and Your lips are reddish like the bimba fruit. May this beautiful vision of Your lotus face be ever manifest in my heart. Thousands and thousands of other benedictions are of no use to me.'
শ্রীশ্রীদামোদরাষ্টকম্

I do not know what will be in the future, so why think about the future? Why think about the past? You must do what you must do now, and continue your spiritual life in this way.
