Dandavat to everybody. I am very happy to see you all by the mercy of Gurudev. I am happy to see that all devotees are practising properly... Dandavat, Srila Janardan Maharaj, please accept my humble obeisance.

Srila Janardan Maharaj: Dandavat pranam, Maharaj.

Dandavat, dandavat. I am very happy to see you, Maharaj. When I see you, I think that I will stay more and more in this world—I am getting energy from seeing you.

Srila Janardan Maharaj: You are still very young and strong. Nobody can walk as fast as you do in the parikrama!

[His Divine Grace laughs.]

By the mercy of Gurudev, everything is going on very nicely here. Everything is going on smooth, all the temples all over the world send me reports, and I am getting very much enthusiasm to do more service for devotees. Actually, my service is that I want to make everybody happy. This is my service. You are all Gurudev's devotees, Gurudev's well-wishers, Gurudev's friends, that is why I want to serve you all, and it is my happiness that you are engaging me in more and more service.

Now, the Janmastami festival is coming soon, and we will try to do something on Janmastami, after that there is Radhastami, Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur's appearance day. We will try to celebrate these festivals. The problem is that we still cannot gather many people together because the virus is still increasing day by day here in India—many people are dying, many people are suffering from this disease, from this pandemic situation. Anyhow, we are trying to preach from afar, we are trying to serve devotees from afar as much as possible. Devotees are also serving to the mission here in India properly. Many send donations according to their capacity, as much as they can in this present situation. I know everybody's financial situation is not good at present, but still everybody is helping as much as they can, as much as it is possible. So many devotees are helping me from so many countries, and I feel that mere 'thank you' is not sufficient. You are doing a great service for the Mission.

Owing to your help I am trying to do some construction, trying to make guesthouses in Nrisingha Palli and Mayapur amidst this situation. I would also like to invite everyone for the Gaura Purnima festival next year. I think that before Gurudev's appearance day, before Nityananda Prabhu's appearance day, the pandemic will have finished properly, and everybody will be able to work again as previously, and more and more devotees will be able to come—that is why I am making these guesthouses. I do not like it when devotees stay outside or in somebody else's house or place, Gurudev also did not like it. He used me to make so many big buildings in Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math. When I joined in 1992 there were not so many rooms at that time and devotees suffered so much—they would live in tents, etc. That is why, Gurudev made guesthouses, made prasadam hall, and later Govinda Kunda also manifested. Gurudev did all this for devotees. That is why, I am also thinking that I have come out of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math in Nabadwip, and I do not know when I can go back there, but in the meantime devotees want to come to India, they want to do the parikrama and stay happily. I know they walk so much for three-four days (next year the parikrama will be five days), and if after that they cannot come to their room and cannot get a proper rest, it is not good for them—it is not good for their health also. This is not proper service to devotees if devotees do not get a proper room and a proper rest after they come back from the parikrama. It is necessary to make arrangements, that is why I thought about it and bought a land in Nrisingha Palli and Mayapur to make new guesthouses so that everyone can do the parikrama properly and can take prasadam properly in a prasadam room. Then, everyone can stay during festivals properly.

I am trying to serve devotees in this way, with this purpose. I also think that we need more rooms in Govardhan and Vrindavan. In Vrindavan, I can make six more rooms in the building of Srila Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami. Many Indian and Western devotees come for Vrindavan parikrama, but they do not get a proper room because the temples do not have many rooms, but the number of devotees coming for the Kartik parikrama is increasing every year. For example, I made eight more rooms in the Sevak Bhavan in Puri for the Jagannath Ratha-yatra pilgrimage, and I think that we also need to make more rooms in Vrindavan and Govardhan. One way or another, I will do it, it is also not so expensive.

In this way, I want to serve devotees. This is the situation now. Our minds should be always concentrated on service mood. We must always exist within service mood...
