His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj arrives in Sri Ekachakra Dham to supervise the next major step in the ongoing construction of the top floor above the nat mandir: the casting of the roof.

Parikrama Is Not Sightseeing
"We have come here to serve the Lord, we have not come to see the Lord or the Lord's things—when such mentality comes to you, then it will be the parikrama of the holy abode, then it will be the darshan of the holy abode. The very dust there is not ordinary dust..."

SONG: Sri Sad-Goswamy-Astakam | শ্রীশ্রীষড়্­গোস্বাম্যষ্টকম্
"I offer my respectful obeisances unto the Six Goswamis, namely Sri Rupa Goswami, Sri Sanatan Goswami, Sri Raghunath Bhatta Goswami, Sri Raghunath Das Goswami, Sri Jiva Goswami, and Sri Gopala Bhatta Goswami, who are always engaged in chanting the Holy Name of Krishna and dancing. They are just like the ocean of love of God, and they are popular both with the gentle and with the ruffians, because they are not envious of anyone. Whatever they do, they are all-pleasing to everyone, and they are fully blessed by Lord Chaitanya. Thus they are engaged in missionary activities meant to deliver all the conditioned souls in the material universe."

SONG: Ei-bara karuna kara | এইবার করুণা কর
"O worshippable Vaisnava, be merciful to me this time. O saviour of the fallen, without you there is no one. In every birth I aspire for the dust of your feet."

SONG: Ohe Vaisnava Thakura | (ওহে) বৈষ্ণব ঠাকুর
"O worshippable Vaishnav, ocean of grace, be merciful to this servant. Give me the shade of your feet and purify me. I clasp your feet. You can give Krishna, you have that power. Calling, 'Krishna!' 'Krishna!', I run after you."

SONG: Ki-rupe paiba seva | কিরূপে পাইব সেবা
"I am so wicked, how will I ever get service? I do not have any attachment to Sri Guru and Vaishnavs! Prabhu, you see no fault in others, you are the saviour of the fallen. Please deliver Narottam this time!"

SONG: Dhana mora nityananda | ধন মোর নিত্যানন্দ
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs' name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of Vaishnavs, and I am elated hearing the name of Vaishnavs."

SONG: Ye anila prema-dhana | যে আনিল প্রেমধন
"Where has Advaita Acharya gone? Where are my Svarup, Rupa, Sanatan? Where is my Raghunath? Where are my Raghunath Bhatta and Gopal Bhatta? Where are the saviours of the fallen souls?"

"I Will Always Be With You"
"I see how much energy you get despite all austerities and difficulties, and I feel very happy—it is on the strength of your energy, on the strength of your love and affection that we are going to start our Nabadwip Dham parikrama from tomorrow."

Guidance 3: "Get This Book and Read It Always"
"Read this book. Buy this book and take it home. What this book contains is not my words: I wrote many examples from Bhagavatam, Chaitanya-charitamrita, examples of what Srila Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj, Srila Prabhupad, Srila Gurudev and Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur say. I am only taking the remnants of what Gurudev has chewed and giving it to you, writing about it for you."

Core Conception
"Just as you do not need a whole sea to satisfy your thirst, you do not need to read an ocean of books. It is not necessary to know so many things. Our main goal is that our life is only for the service of the Lord and we must serve the Lord with sincerity, determination, following proper behaviour and practice."

Sri Bhakti Siddhanta Vani
A quote of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad that is printed and hung on the wall at the veranda of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj and many of the temples: "If someone does not consider it necessary to faithfully follow their Guru and the Vaishnavs, their endeavour to serve the Lord is not service to the Lord—it is service to maya."

Sri Guru-Tattva: The Captain of Your Boat
"If you serve your Guru properly, if you have devotion to the Guru, then you will be able to remove the bondage with the modes of material nature, and through that relationship with your Guru you can get service to the Lord and finally reach your destination."

One-Pointed Hearts
"There is no scarcity of visaya-vistha (stool of material world). If you eat all those other things, do you think you will get the taste for the Lord? If you eat outside food, listen to outside kirtans, this is hodge-podge devotion (panchmisali bhakti)! We do not want to behave like prostitutes—we do not go this side, that side, that side; our conception is one direction, our heart must be one-pointed otherwise we can never get the Lord."

4) Criticise scriptures
5) Interpret the Name with the help of a dictionary, etc.
6) Consider the Name imaginary.
7) Sin and chant to remove the sin.
8) Consider chanting equal to pious activities.

Parama karuna
'Give up mundane talk and chant aloud 'Gaurahari'! Give up village talk and chant aloud 'Gaurahari'!'
পরম করুণ

 

What Guru Maharaj and Gurudev gave us is sufficient for us. We are happy and do not want more than that, but it will be good if we continue preaching Krishna consciousness following this line.

"HUMILITY, TOLERANCE, GIVING HONOUR TO OTHERS | HUMILITY, TOLERANCE, GIVING HONOUR TO OTHERS"
