"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."

tarpana mora vaisnavera nama
vaisnavera uchchhista tahe mora mano-nistha
vaisnavera namete ullasa

"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 at the name of Vaishnavs."

"If the Ganges touches someone, they are purified some time later; but one becomes purified just by seeing you, O Vaishnava Thakur. Such is your power."

ARRIVAL AT SRI CHAITANYA SARASWAT MATH, EKACHAKRA

 


 


 


 


 


 


His Divine Grace says ("Good Mind, Good Heart"): "I went to Bankura temple (Betur) yesterday and from there I went to Ekachakra. I had some service there. The goshala in Ekachakra has become a little too small—some cows are living now in the big kitchen I made last year, so today I started the works to extend the goshala a little. Three cows gave calves, so the number of our cows in Ekachakra has increased, that is why I had some small job there to extend the goshala, and I also arranged some preparation for the festival of Lord Nityananda Prabhu's appearance."

A chair has four legs. If a chair has only one leg, it will fall down. So, your Guru
is like one leg of a chair, the other legs will depend upon you.
