You may live 80-100 years, but you do not understand it yourself—many of you say, "I will not practise Krishna consciousness now. When I get old, when I retire at sixty, then I will practise spiritual life." When you get to retired life, how long will you be alive after that? When you retire, you will have to count your days till death—you will feel so much pain in the body: you will try to chant on the beads, but your hand will pain; if you sit on the floor, your back or lumber will pain; when you want to go from one place to another, you will have to get another person to help you. When you have so much pain in your body, tell me, do you think you will like serving the Lord or chanting? When you say, "I will practise spiritual life when I get older," Srila Prabhupad and the scriptures say that this is cheating, or deceiving, the Lord. Speaking like this is cheating the Lord. "When I get old, then I will practise Krishna consciousness. I will not do it now." You have come to this line owing to much accumulated karma, but if you keep thinking and remembering other things, if you do not practise from a young age, then you will not be able to remember the Lord, you will not be able to chant the glory of the Lord. I think that I came to Krishna consciousness at twenty-eight, and I often think, "If only I had come earlier, it would have been so much better." Gurudev came when he was seventeen. Now my legs pain, this pains, that pains. Diseases will come, must come—if you have a body, then diseases will come. So, if you do not waste your time and practise Krishna consciousness while you are still young, then you will get the supreme benefit.

...I have been trying. There have been works going on in many places. Still, I have managed to complete the rooms upstairs [in Sri Nrisingha Palli, above the nat mandir]. I hurried the workers a lot. There was much work in Ekachakra also. Nrisingha Palli is a small place, but the land in Ekachakra is very big—19 kanal [2.375 acre/9611.28 sq.m.]. It must be three times bigger than the land here in Nrisingha Palli. Now,there is no problem in Ekachakra—there are now more rooms above the nat mandir. The festival in Ekachakra is next, it is soon—Sri Nityananda Trayodasi, the abode of Guru-tattva. You all must come. There is no problem with accommodation now. There is still time—only painting and electric works are left now; the bathrooms are all ready. There are many places where works have been going on...

...Anyway, whichever state, however the Lord keeps you, you must live and be happy with that. Whatever the Lord wishes, this is what will happen. You must always leave everything to the Lord. However the Lord keeps you, whatever situation the Lord creates, you must accept it. Do you understand it? Nothing is in our hands. We are only His servitors.

At Gauri Das Pandit's House
'Gauri Das Pandit was a grihastha devotee who lived in Kalna. His brother was the father of Jahnava and Vasudha. Once, Mahaprabhu and Nityananda Prabhu came to Kalna by boat and decided to visit Gauri Das Pandit's house...'

 

Namo namah tulasi maharani
'O Tulasi, you shower mercy upon one who offers you incense, lamps, foods, worship, and flowers.'

When we go along the current it is not necessary to do much hard labour;
but when the current is going against us, then we have to labour hard.
