Devotee: Jay Om Vishnupad Paramahamsa Jagad Guru Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj ki jay. Gaura premanande Hari bol

By the mercy of Gurudev, by the mercy of Sri Nityananda Prabhu, we have already finished our Nityananda-trayodasi festival. We feel very grateful, we feel much happiness that such a big festival has taken place without any problems. We are trying to fulfil the desire of Gurudev and Guru Maharaj. We think that without Nityananda Prabhu's mercy, without Gurudev's mercy, we are not able to do it, we have no capacity—everything happens by the mercy of Lord Nityananda Prabhu and Gurudev.

We do not know for how many days in this life we can do this service like this, but we are always enthusiastic, we are always trying to serve Gurudev or Nityananda Prabhu, and it is Their matter whether they will accept our service or not, we do not know this. Our duty is to always try to do our best. Without service to the guru and Vaishnavs, if we cannot make our guru and Vaishnavs happy, then our spiritual life is going in a wrong way. You must be always alert, you must be always careful not to make any offence to the guru and Vaishnavs.

Once, Mahaprabhu decided to test Srivas Pandit. Mahaprabhu told him, "Srivas, you always give shelter to Nityananda Prabhu at your house, but you do not know His caste, you do not know what His religion is, who He is, etc. You should kick him out of your house." Srivas Pandit laughed, "Prabhu, You are coming to test me! You are coming to joke with me! I know that your body and Nityananda's body is the same. Even is Nityananda Prabhu does bad things, even if He brings a prostitute, my mind and my heart will not change about Nityananda Prabhu." When Mahaprabhu heard this from the mouth of Srivas Pandit, He said, "Hari bol! Hari bol!" and embraced Srivas Pandit. Srivas Pandit said then, "Prabhu, You please give me Your mercy that I may carry on this kind of mentality, this kind of thinking about Nityananda Prabhu my whole life."

That is Nityananda Prabhu. His mercy is inconceivable. Therefore, only very fortunate souls can join this kind of festival and enjoy with it. Actually, I am thinking now that there is always a grand festival in Nabadwip at Gaura Purnima time, but this festival is becoming more and more grand—more and more thousands of people come to take prasadam, to join this festival. It is all only mercy of Gurudev, it is Guru Maharaj's will.

What Will Your Parrot Say?
On the importance of good association. Tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are: 'When I went to Russia with Gurudev in 2000, I remember one lecture that Gurudev gave there. He told one story from Narada-pancha-ratra...'


Janama saphala ta'ra
'Krishna is expert at play in Vrindavan. He wears a forest garland, poses bent in three places, and plays the flute perfectly. He is a reservoir of rasa and possesses all qualities.'
জনম সফল তা'র

If we imitate what Krishna does, then we become sahajiyas.
