Our Plan and Programme

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

I am very happy to see you all by the grace of Guru Maharaj and Gurudev. It is very nice to see your smiling face and good, happy service and preaching mood. Your practising mood is very nice. I am very happy—every time I see people are preaching some Krishna consciousness, I become very happy.

"Pran achhe yar, sei hetu prachar (প্রাণ আছে যার সেই হেতু প্রচার): as long as you have life in the body, you must preach." We have come to this world to spread the message of Gurudev, to distribute the message of Mahaprabhu. This is our plan and programme. This is what our life is for.

Only sitting in one place, offering the bhog, eating and spending so much time watching facebook, doing some nonsense work, commenting some bad things—that is "an idle mind is devil's workhshop." This is not what our life is for. We did not come to Gurudev for that. We have come here to preach. Whether you are a sannyasi, a brahmachari, or a householder devotee, your duty is to serve Vaishnavs. Without service to Vaishnavs, without the association of Gurudev, without the association of the great Vaishnavs, it is impossible.

We must always make ourselves busy—busy with service. We must use the whole of twenty-four hours—every moment of our life is very important. We must preach and distribute Mahaprabhu's message among the fallen conditioned souls.

We must maintain our spiritual life. Only chanting the Holy Name four rounds, offering some bhog at your altar and taking prasad is not sufficient for your spiritual life. You cannot reach your goal and destination in this way. You must do more service, you must give more time for Gurudev, for the Lord, for Mahaprabhu. You must maintain your spiritual life properly.

Vaishnav Etiquette
'Even if your enemy comes to your house from far away, you must at least give them some prasad, some sweet rice, some Tulasi, water, and talk to them sweetly.'

 

Nitai gunamani amara
'Nitai brought a flood of divine love to the land of Gauda. The devotees immersed themselves in it, but the unfortunate floated on its surface.'
নিতাই গুণমণি আমার

If you have some material desire and do not want to remove it, and instead
you want more and more, you will never get relief from that desire.
