I am very happy to see you all today. Past two-three weeks I have been busy in Nrisingha Palli, after that there was Hapaniya pancham-dol—the appearance festival of Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Radha Gopinath jiu in Hapaniya. When the festival in Hapaniya finished, I returned the same day to Kolkata. I had some work yesterday here, and today I have been to Uluberia, I had to do some service for the new temple's inauguration—I met with the devotees there and discussed how we will manage the inauguration. I came back from travelling just one hour ago, and I am very happy to see you. I see that everybody is here.

Please accept my humble obeisance, Srila Ashram Maharaj, dandavat.

Srila Ashram Maharaj: Please accept my humble obeisance too. How are you, Maharaj?

I am fine. After the festival, Krishna and Gurudev are giving me so much nourishment because this year I have no problems with health—no sickness, nothing. I am OK.

During the parikrama and festival time I was afraid to check my blood sugar because I had not been following the health rules and regulations so much, I had not watched my diet so much, there was no timetable for meals, etc. I know that if I checked it and sugar was high, I would have some tension, but I checked it yesterday and my sugar level is 106 after fasting. I am thinking it is Krishna's mercy because during the parikrama I sometimes took rice three times a day as I did not want my stomach to disturb me—if I take chapati or some other things, then I get much problem with the acidity and other things, that is why I took rice, and there is no problem, I see my sugar is OK.

As I was saying, I had some bank job here in Kolkata yesterday, and today I went to Uluberia because they are starting to paint the temple, and when all painting works are finished, I will make the date for the inauguration of Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Gandharva Govinda Sundar. I still have not make the date yet.

This Wednesday I am going to Vrindavan. I have some service in Delhi and Vrindavan, so I want to go to Vrindavan, Govardhan for a few days. I know it is very hot there now and I cannot tolerate so much heat, but I have to go there for some service. I have not been able to go to Vrindavan for so many days and months because of the pandemic situation—I usually go there every kartik, but I could not go there last year, that is why I am thinking I must go there. I have bought the ticket for going there, but I have not bought the return ticket yet—I must see how much service is there, then I can decide when I can come back. It is not sure for now. If I can finish everything quickly, then I will come back soon. I have some service there, and when there is some service somewhere, I must go there. I do not want to waste my life—if I can use all time for the service to Gurudev, I am always happy.

I was almost twenty days in Nrisingha Palli, the festivals finished there, and next it is Gurudev's disappearance festival coming, then Nrinsigha-chaturdasi. Every temple will make a festival on these days, and I will also make a festival wherever I am at that time.

You know, there was a very strange number of initiations this Gaura Purnima. Total one hundred and forty devotees took first and second initiations. Thirty or thirty-two devotees took second initiation and one hundred and eight devotees took the first initiation. It is too many initiations in one day. I started in the morning and finished only at about four o'clock, and immediately after that I joined the festival Gaura Purnima programme—Mahaprabhu's appearance festival. I had been giving initiations the whole day, it was too much for me that day...

Withdrawal of Srila Haridas Thakur
'On this day Mahaprabhu gave a great festival for Haridas Thakur; on this day Haridas Thakur left this world. Actually, Haridas Thakur is always with us, he did not leave this world, only his body left...'

 

Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'After Jnanasindhu came Dayanidhi. Dayanidhi's servant was Vidyanidhi. After Vidyanidhi came Rajendra. Rajendra's servant was Jaya Dharma. Know the parampara properly in this way.'
কৃষ্ণ হৈতে চতুর্ম্মুখ

Who is able to see the Guru? Those who have mercy from the Guru, can see the Guru.
