Please accept my humble obeisance. I am meeting you all again after one week, and I am very fortunate to be always able to meet with you all, with all the devotees.

"Vaishnava sangete mana anandita anuksana. My heart rejoices in the association of Vaishnavs." When we get the association of Vaishnavs, the association of great souls, we always feel pleasure and all dirty things become removed from our hearts. That is why, we always need good association.

We must always think good about everybody. If you think good about everybody, then Krishna will think good about you. It is important to understand this. We must think good about everybody—everybody can join Krishna consciousness, everybody can chant the Holy Name. I see that, despite the situation now, all the devotees are OK, everybody is doing some service in some small way, everybody is joining this programme. It gives us happiness.

I went to Bankura temple (Betur) yesterday and from there I went to Ekachakra. I had some service there. The goshala in Ekachakra has become a little too small—some cows are living now in the big kitchen I made last year, so today I started the works to extend the goshala a little. Three cows gave calves, so the number of our cows in Ekachakra has increased, that is why I had some small job there to extend the goshala, and I also arranged some preparation for the festival of Lord Nityananda Prabhu's appearance.

It is Kali-yuga now, and everything is changing—when it is winter season, winter does not come, and when it is summer season, summer weather does not come. So many things are happening in this world, these things are bound to happen, but our duty is to practise properly, to chant the Holy Name, to follow all the rules and regulations. It was ekadasi yesterday, but I travelled three hundred kilometres, and I am fine—we must never stop our service.

I pray that all the devotees' health will be good and that everybody stays very happy in their life. Sometimes, some problems come in family life, some things can happen, and it gives us a little pain, but when something bad comes, we should always ignore it.

The Sticky Blanket
'One black bear fell down into the Ganges and began to sink—he tried hard to swim out but the current was too strong. A man saw something black in the river and thought it was a blanket...'

 

Durlabha manava-janma
'I eat luxuriously, look around, and dress carelessly, never considering that one day I will leave this body.'
দুর্লভ মানব জন্ম

If Gurudev had not come, who would have been able to tell us
about the glories of Gauranga?
