Arrange and Enjoy

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

Can I ask you something?

Actually, I want some devotees to serve here in India. If anyone wants to come here and stay, try to come. Everybody comes only in winter season, and now it is a little hot here... Devotees only come at the festival time and enjoy the festival, but Gurudev said, "You must not only enjoy with the festival, you must also arrange the festival." To enjoy a festival and to arrange a festival is not the same thing. Enjoying the festival is easy, but arranging the festival is a little hard. You must come earlier to arrange the festival.

On 13 July we are going to Jagannath Puri. Every 50 years new Deities come for Lord Jagannath, and five million people will attend the program. If you can come before 13 July, you can also join me in that festival.

I know everybody has some financial difficulty, and South America is now always suffering financial problems, but I think it is temporary. Also, as an example, if you look at me, if you observe me, you can get some hope. You know, when I joined the temple as a brahmachari, I only brought twelve rupees with me, and when I got first initiation, I gave all those twelve rupees to my Guru. Despite that, I have been staying here for about twenty-five years now—how is it possible? You must think about it. You think you have to maintain yourself, you have to do many things, but look at me—I brought only twelve rupees and gave it all to my Guru, my balance was zero, but up until today I am still maintaining all temples and do everything. How is possible? Only through service and through the mercy that comes from Gurudev everything is still running—it is necessary to keep this kind of faith.

Stri-Sanga and Jiva-Himsa
Two of the four regulative principles: 'You must avoid stri-sanga and purush-sanga, and from today, do not eat and do not cook any fish, meat, poultry, eggs, onion, garlic, or masoor dal. Take prasad.'

 

Ye anila prema-dhana
'Where has Advaita Acharya, the Lord who mercifully brought the wealth of divine love to this world, gone?'

When some material things come to your mind, you must remove them immediately because if you give food to your mind, your mind will become strong and it can take you away from the service.
