Dandavat. Haribol. Today the connection may not be very good as I am in a very rural area. I am now in Sriman Nityananda Prabhu's appearance place in Sri Ekachakra Dham, so the connection here is a little not so good. I was in Nrisingha Palli yesterday, and today we have came to Ekachakra. I still need one more day for rice collection and one more day for potato collection—I will go after the festival in Ekachakra. Other than that, the collection is now almost finished.

Here is Krishna Chaitanya Prabhu from Ukraine. How are you, Prabhu? Dandavat. I have got the donation you have sent for the Ekachakra festival. It is of a very great help. It is very helpful for this festival because some devotees had sent something previously, and I have expended it on the guesthouse and Prasadam Hall construction in Nrisingha Palli, so I was a little short of money, and Krishna has sent some funds—'Krishna' means Krishna Chaitanya Prabhu sent it. It was very helpful. Satya Sundari Didi has also sent some donation for Ekachakra, I have got it too. If each devotee sends a little, a little, it is sufficient.

Gurudev said from time to time, "If one door closes, another door will open." This is my hope. If some devotees do not help, it is not a problem—Krishna arranges everything for His service Himself.

I have been going for rice and potato collection for many years, and some people who used to donate before do not give anything now, but then some new people appear and they start giving more and more. It is happening here, and it is happening abroad also—some devotees used to help so much, but now they are not helping. Somebody thinks that I have lost the main temple in Nabadwip, that I do not live there anymore, so why must they give anything now? You know what Gurudev said. He told me, "If you are alive, that is sufficient for me." So, I cannot kill myself for the main temple. That is why I left it, and so many devotees are still with me, that is my happiness.

Those who are in the front field know how much I tolerated when I was at Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math. In the end, I became very sick and almost died. My body, everything finished. Yet, by the mercy of Gurudev, by the mercy of the Lord and all the devotees' prayers, I am still alive and I am always with you all. That is sufficient for me. I realise that this is only the mercy of Nityananda Prabhu and Gurudev because my doctors (all big, big doctors) later told me about what had happened to my health—they said that only maybe one person out of ten thousand people can survive this kind of disease. This is the kind of disease that happened to me when I got sick, but I am still alive, I am still working as before and I can walk without a stick. You can see it. Through devotees' prayers for me I am getting life and am able to function as before, as in my brahmachari life. Otherwise, I went on foot and visited 125-140 houses every day—it is impossible without the blessing of the devotees.

So, I do not have any problem. Actually, when I left Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, I had to start from zero, and you can see now how many temples have happened and how many devotees serve properly all over the world and here in India also. Everybody is happily doing their service, and by the mercy of Gurudev we have opened many new temples since then. All this is impossible without the mercy of the devotees.

The Root of Our Fortune
'Srila Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj came in this world to rescue us, and he created our Guru—by his grace we have got shelter of our bona fide Guru. So, we must worship his lotus feet.'

 

Gaya Gora madhur svare
'Your life is ending, but you have not served Hrsikes. Bhakti Vinod advises: once relish His Name's nectar.'
গায় গোরা মধুর স্বরে

If you keep these desires in your heart, that is not good. You must try to remove it as soon as the seed appears—kill it through chanting.
