His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Sri Nabadwip Dham, speaking online to Venezuela
25 April 2015

 

Question: When we are so far from you, how can we get your association?

To say or think "so far" is not correct. You offer everything to your Guru, you think about your Guru, then how can it be 'far'? If you think your Guru is far, then how far is Krishna? Venezuela and India are not so far from each other compared to Goloka Vrindavan, where Krishna lives.

যে দিন গৃহে ভজন দেখি ।
গৃহেতে গোলোক ভায় ॥

ye dina grhe bhajana dekhi
grhete goloka bhaya

On the days when I see devotional service taking place in my home, I feel that Goloka has manifested there.

'Suddha-bhakata-charana-renu' by Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur

It means that when you worship your Guru, worship Krishna, Krishna is always in your house. Every day you offer to Gurudev, you serve Gurudev, and Gurudev is always in your house. It is easy to serve—anywhere you stay, just follow Gurudev's instruction, and you will easily get mercy from Gurudev.

One More Year Passed
As one more years draws to its end, His Divine Grace muses on the value and meaning of life, quoting several Vaishnav songs: 'Life is shaky—it is here now, and then it is gone. Serve the Lord's feet!'

 

Gurudev! krpa-bindu diya
'When I examine myself for qualifications, I find none. Your mercy is everything.'
গুরুদেব! কৃপাবিন্দু দিয়া

How much chastity do you have? How much sincerity do you have? You can easily analyse it yourself—but be always careful.
