Six Qualities

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
15 October 2019, Kolkata, part 5

 

Bhakti-anukul, what is favourable to devotion, means you have (1) enthusiasm for devotion. You always enthusiastic to do devotional activities—to cook, to do puja, to chant kirtans or do any other service. You are always enthusiastic (utsaha). Whenever there is some festival, an appearance or disappearance day of our Guru-varga, Janmastami, Radhastami, or any other festival, you always want to arrange something on this day.

(2) Nischaya guna means drdha visvas, the strongest faith. If you have a strongest faith in the Lord, it is a good quality (guna).

(3) Dhairya means tolerance (sahisnu). Those who have much tolerance and much patience can conquer the whole world. It is necessary to have patience.

(4) Always make festivals, always give something to those who come, always cook and do good for others. Preach, chant kirtans. These are our main activities. You must attachment (asakti) to service.

(5) Asat-sanga tyag. Always avoid bad association, always ignore such association. Always ignore it.

And (6) you must learn from sadhus—you must see how a sadhu passes his days, what activities he engages in and do that too. You must try to follow it. For example, you can hear how Gurudev glorifies his Guru Maharaj and you can try to follow that.

ভজনে উৎসাহ যার ভিতরে বাহিরে ।
সুদুর্ল্লভ কৃষ্ণভক্তি পাবে ধীরে ধীরে ॥

bhajane utsaha yara bhitare bahire,
sudurlabha krsna-bhakti pabe dhire dhire

"Those who are enthusiastic to practise Krishna consciousness within their heart and in their behaviour, gradually get devotion to Krishna which is otherwise extremely rare to attain."

(Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur)

Those who have enthusiasm for chanting the Holy Name, for doing service and other devotional activities, who like to serve devotees in various ways, they will gradually get devotion to Krishna (Krishna-bhakti).

Those who have the strongest faith in the Lord are called sraddha-vana-jana, and they are the perfect persons for the practice of Krishna consciousness, for the worship of the Lord.

Sri Ekachakra Dham: History and Glory
'Our fortune is very good, we have come to the holy Dham of Nityananda Prabhu. You cannot come here unless you have a great fortune. Nityananda Prabhu's appearance day is on Saturday, but we do not know, we cannot recognise who will join the festival..'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Supreme Godhead, I offer my obeisances unto You. O Damodara! O Ananta! O Visnu! O Master! O my Lord, be pleased upon me. By showering Your glance of mercy upon me, deliver this poor ignorant fool who is immersed in an ocean of worldly sorrows, and become visible to my eyes.'
শ্রীশ্রীদামোদরাষ্টকম্

If you give a bucket of stool to a pig, it will be so happy, 'Oh, I am taking nectar!'
So, you take this 'nectar' and do parikrama, rounding the material worlds, taking birth
and death, birth and death, and eating so many bad things... And the life is wasted.
