Love for Guru: Love Service, Love Vaishnavs

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Siliguri, 20 May 2017, Bengali class, part 10


Guru Maharaj said, "If you serve Vaishnavs, the Lord will come to serve you." I told your the other day and every time we go to Vrindavan I also tell how Radharani Herself came to cook sweet rice for Rupa Goswami and Sanatan Goswami. She took so much trouble to cook it and left. Later, when Sanatan Goswami tried to find Her, She was no where to be found—He had searched for the girl who had made that sweet rice in all Yavat, but did not find anybody. Then Sanatan Goswami understood that it was Radharani Herself, and he began to cry, "We are here to serve Her, but She has come to serve us!"

We must also accept Mahaprabhu's teaching—not to disrespect others. One time, Jagadananda Pandit spoke to Sanatan Goswami disrespectfully, he said, "Yes, it is time now, you must leave." Jagadananda Pandit had no right to say this. To teach us, Mahaprabhu said to him, "You are just a child! Sanatan is My Guru and you, who were born only yesterday, are teaching him?!" Sanatan Goswami began to cry, "Prabhu, you are chastising him so much, but you do not chastise me! You are giving me bitter and You are giving sweet to him!"

When the Guru chastises you, he is giving you sweet things—but do the disciples understand this? They do not understand anything. Srila Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj also beat Gurudev—to raise, to train Gurudev he even beat him. Gurudev also told me many times, "Get out of here!", but he was testing me. He wanted to see, "Will you too leave me? If he leaves, does he love me then?" If a disciple really loves his Guru, he would never leave. It is necessary to always remember about this.

Fallen Souls:
Imitation, Ego, Faith
Imitation: 'After passing the brahmachari age, it is your right, you can get married. It is not bad, but it must be an honest householder life.'
Ego: 'They do some service, but I am praying to the Lord that through their service ego will not come.'
Faith: 'When you go fishing, you see fish in some place, but when you throw the net some fish will swim away. Do not worry about that.'


Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'To the Supreme Lord, whose form is the embodiment of eternal existence, knowledge, and bliss, whose shark-shaped earrings are swinging to and fro, who is beautifully shining in the divine realm of Gokula, who [due to the offence of breaking the pot of yogurt that his mother was churning into butter and then stealing the butter that was kept hanging from a swing] is quickly running from the wooden grinding mortar in fear of Mother Yasoda, but who has been caught from behind by her who ran after Him with greater speed—to that Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, I offer my humble obeisances.'

All paraphernalia, even the temple itself, is Nityananda Prabhu, the Lord Himself.
