"I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of acharyas,
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart
guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our
most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to
Mahabhav, Srimati Radharani."

The result of visiting a place of pilgrimage is sadhu-sanga (pure devotees’
association) and being drawn to the exclusive service of Sri Krishna. A place
of pilgrimage is where a sadhu (pure devotee) is. Always keep the association
of pure devotees and firmly fix your mind by such association.

"All glories to Nrisinghadev! All glories to Nrisinghadev, who is the Lord of
Prahlad Maharaj and, like a honeybee, is always engaged in beholding the
lotus face of the goddess of fortune."
