Does anyone have any questions?

Question: How can we better serve our Math? We sometimes feel that our service 'battery' is low, but we want to increase our mood of service and we want our mind to help us in the way.

If you do and do service, if you do more and more service, then you will get more service; and when you get more service, that will be your happiness, that will be your good luck. To get more and more service—that is your happiness. You should read my lectures, listen to my lectures, read my programmes, attend the daily programmes every day.

Actually, you know that the whole world struggles from early morning until night—people work so hard and get so exhausted. They think about themselves their whole life—how to make a house, how to get proper food, how to get proper sleep, how to get good things, how to get proper medicine. All people always think about ourselves and they spend their whole life on themselves, but the problem is that they do not think what will happen after death. What will be the result of such life after death? What will happen to their soul (atma)? What happens to the body? How does it all work?

People struggle their whole life always thinking, "Money, money, money," or thinking how to get food, etc.—people do not think about their real selves, they do not think about reality. We always think about our body, but we do not think about our real selves—we do not think what can give benefit to our soul (atma).

Therefore, we must keep ourselves busy with the service of Gurudev, with the service of the Lord. We should not be busy with our body—we should keep ourselves busy with service to our Guru and Vaishnavs. Do not waste you time. Life is very short, so do not waste your time on laziness, etc.—it is not good. We must spend time on the service to Gurudev—when you have time, read Gurudev's books, read Gurudev's scriptures, listen to Hari-katha, sing some kirtan. This is what you must use your time for.

Anything for Guru's Service
You can do anything for the service to your Guru, but for your own self you cannot do any sinful work; but we do just the opposite: for our own happiness we are not afraid to do any sinful work, and we are always afraid to do something for Gurudev..


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.'

Mercy of the Guru is necessary. This mercy will come to the surrendered souls, to those who are fully surrendered and who hanker for devotional activities.
