We have come here by the mercy of Gurudev, by the mercy of Lord Nityananda Prabhu. Without their mercy we cannot be present here. Out of His mercy, Nityananda Prabhu has given us some small place at his birthplace where we can stay.

Actually, I have not been able to come to Ekachakra for a long time. Last time I was here was after Gaura Purnima time and I also came here a few days ago—I had some preaching programme in this locality, so I got an opportunity to stay here for one-two days. I went to preaching in the nearby villages from here. There are not many devotees staying here—only Niriha Maharaj and two-three devotees, two-three ladies, and a pujari are staying here.

We are also very fortunate because this year there is so much dust in this building—you can get an opportunity to clean this building. That is also one kind of mercy. Nityananda Prabhu has given us this mercy. This building has not been cleaned for many days, and Nityananda Prabhu has brought you here to clean His place.

Gurudev told me, "If you want to make a temple in Ekachakra, first you must make devotees' house in remembrance of Nityananda Prabhu's parents, Hadai Pandit and Padmavati Mayi."

You know also that this temple was made, Gurudev was still present in this world (Gurudev's presence is still with us, no doubt), when he was in Kolkata or Nabadwip, he arranged everything and made this building, sevak bhavan for the devotees' accommodation. Many foreign devotees helped, they gave donation to Gurudev—Gurudev supplied it to me, and I tried to make a building here. Gurudev was very happy with it, you know that. Gurudev would then stay in Nabadwip or Dum Dum park, and he hung a photo of this place on his veranda. He would always look at this place. Gurudev wanted to come here, and I also arranged for him to come here, but he was too sick and could not come.

Gurudev's mood is always the same as that of Nityananda Prabhu. Everybody now preaches Krishna consciousness, but Nityananda Prabhu preached Gaura consciousness, that was His mood. Gurudev also preached Gaura consciousness. That was the main peculiarity of his preaching.

When Vrindavan Das Thakur, Krishna Das Kaviraj Goswami were writing their Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita and Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat, they both got mercy of Nityananda Prabhu...

Odds and Ends
'It does not look good for a saffron-clad brahmachari to go to a restaurant and take food there. Sitting there, gossiping and talking, is very ugly. They must be a little shy, they must think a little what they are doing.'


'One who very carefully recites aloud this Sri Gurvastakam during the brahma-muhurta (the ninety-six minute period before sunrise) attains direct service to the Lord of Vrindavan at the end of life.'

By service we can prove how much attachment, how much love and affection
we have for our Guru.
