Mon, 5 December 2016: (Anniversary Festival in Sri Puri Dham Temple)
Possessiveness or Chastity?
"'It is my service,' 'It is his service,' 'It is my things,' 'It is your things.' When such mentality comes to us, it is foolishness, it is ignorance. We must understand clearly that it is not like this."

বামনদেবের কথা (ওঁ বিষ্ণুপাদ শ্রীল ভক্তি নির্ম্মল আচার্য্য মহারাজের হরি-কথামৃত)
"দৈত্যরাজ ছিল বলি মহারাজ । সে বলি মহারাজ দেখতে পারলেন যে, সব অসুররা পরাজিত হচ্ছে, সবাই মরে যাচ্ছে আর উনি ভাবলেন, 'আমাকে বিরাট যজ্ঞ করতে হবে ।' এদিকে স্বর্গে অদিতি চিন্তা করলেন, 'হে প্রভু ! তোমার ইচ্ছায় এ সব হচ্ছে, তুমি একটু ব্যবস্থা করে দাও—আবির্ভুত হও !' আর সে অদিতির গর্ভেই ভগবান বামন-রূপে আবির্ভুত হলেন..."

Ignorance Is Bliss?
"We do not want to learn, we do not want to follow our Guru. If we actually wanted to follow Gurudev's instruction, Mahaprabhu's instruction, we could easily get the result. There is one story about two very naughty brothers, Lalu and Kalu..."

Our Plight and Path
"We become blind by getting some material things and cannot see which way is good, which way is bad, but if by some sukriti we can find a sadhu, the sadhu can break that bondage of the illusory environment, then we will get the nirmal dham."

Monkey's Life
"Brahmacharis live in a temple, but sometimes because of the illusory environment or their bad karma, or because they do not practise properly, they leave the temple and go to family life, and I can tell you what kind of 'happiness' they get in family life."

Clear Your Mind
"Lord Nrisinghadev wants to give you what you want, and we are foolish, but Prahlad Maharaj is not foolish: he did not ask for anything. Your Gurudev's hand is already on your head—you have got his mercy, you always have his shelter; but now you are drying up..."

Beyond Material Environment
"They talk about pollution, about environment, saving the nature, saving health, but this is not high thinking. If we preach to them, if we tell them something about the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and Mahaprabhu's conception, they will easily understand that they are actually wasting their time..."

Surrender: "You Are Not Independent"
"What does surrender mean? We say we have surrendered, or we are surrendering, we have renounced everything, but it may be false renunciation, false surrender. The main thing about surrender is not to follow your mind, but to follow your Gurudev's instruction."

Service Anxiety
"Sometimes we are afraid of the Lord, but you should not be afraid of Him. When we have a family, a husband, children, etc. we take care of them as our own family, so a devotee also takes care of Krishna as a member of his family."

SONG: Dhana mora Nityananda | ধন মোর নিত্যানন্দ
"My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of Vaishnavs, and I am elated at the name of Vaishnavs. Advaita Acharya is my strength, Gadadhar is my family, and Narahari is my play and pastimes."

Pratistha: Self-Destruction
"If you want to get mercy from Gauranga, mercy from Gurudev, mercy from Krishna, it is not necessary to want to be a guru or to have any big position—through just some little service you can be a great devotee or go to your real destination."

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“O brother! Serve the Gauranga of my heart. Without Gaura, all of life's pleasures are meaningless.”

      

Maya's Family vs Krishna's Family
'You are hoarding money, things, property, and become so attached to it, but you will not get pleasure from that. Only when you become detached, when you realise that everything you have is for Krishna, for service to the Lord, will you get the proper happiness.'
