Alwarnath Prabhu

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
speaking online to Colombia
18 May 2015

 

I always remember Alwarnath Prabhu and how much service he did for the devotees. He may have left his body here, but Gurudev always keeps a room for him in his place.

He made a dome here, he did so much service here, and I think his service was necessary in Goloka Vrindavan, that is why Gurudev called him, and he went there. I am thinking he knows how to make a house, he knows how to make a temple dome, and I am sure Gurudev needed him for his service there—maybe it is necessary to make a dome there, and Gurudev called him, so he left his body and went there.

Remembering his service, remember Chhota Haridas. When Chhota Haridas committed suicide, left his body, Mahaprabhu wanted to hear him sing, and Chhota Haridas sang a song. Everybody was surprised and wondered what was happening, but Mahaprabhu said, "You must believe Me: My devotee does not leave Me, My devotee always stays with Me." "Na me bhaktah pranasyati." [Bg, 9.31] Krishna Himself said, "My devotee is never vanquished. My devotee always stays with Me, and My devotee is never ruined."

 


The new domes that Alwarnath Prabhu and the devotees made for
the Parama Karuna temple in Caracas, Venezuela.

Under Control
To talk about others, enjoy nice food, clothes, sex, get angry, take pride in yourself, and nurture material desires is not spiritual life—spiritual life is when your Guru controls your life, not your mind.

 

Sri-rupa-manjari-pada
'Whatever favourable there is in the rules and regulations, may it have its fulfilment in attaining her lotus feet. I want to see it with my own two eyes. The ecstatic beauty of this Rupa is such that my very life force is nourished by her moon-like self.'
শ্রীরূপমঞ্জরী-পদ

If you think that everything is for Guru, pratistha will not attack you
so much—pratistha will not be able to disturb you.
