A Very Busy Day

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Divine Appearance Day, Sri Vyasa Puja
Kolkata—Worldwide, 17 October 2020, part 3


I see that phone calls have been coming today from all over the world starting from 3:30-4 o'clock in the morning. Everyone is calling me continuously, I have three-four phones and sometimes I have to hold two phones to both of my ears and try to give attention to what they are saying. It is very difficult for me. I am very busy today. Bengali devotees started calling me from early morning. I hear that not only in foreign countries they are making big festivals today, but also all the temples, centres here in India are also making big festivals today...

I am very happy with the devotees' mood. When they do this festival I think that I become like a baby in my old age now. Talking, talking, and now almost sixty-two years have passed in my life. They demand so many things when it comes to my birthday celebration. Gurudev gave this position to me and all devotees, all my godbrothers, well-wishers and friends will not listen to me—they still make this festival.

Some devotees from Mayapur called Sripad Niriha Maharaj saying, "We want to come on Acharya Maharaj's appearance day," and I told Sripad Niriha Maharaj, "If devotees want to come, then you can make a festival, what can I do? If somebody wants to come, we want to serve them." So, Sripad Niriha Maharaj and Sripad Vishnu Maharaj invited everybody from Mayapur, Svarupganj and Godrumdwip and made a festival in Nrisingha Palli. They have also made a festival in Ekachakra. There is a small temple in Mahadiya, and even there they said they had arranged a festival for four hundred people! Such a small temple, but they do so much! They arranged a festival in Tarakeshwar also, three-four hundred people came. Uluberia also made a festival, four-five hundred people came. They are making this festival everywhere despite this pandemic situation. I got phone calls from Vrindavan, Govardhan. Every temple is arranging a festival today. And everybody invites me to come...

I am very surprised and very happy with the devotees—they are giving so much love and affection to me, they are giving so much respect to me although I cannot serve the devotees properly. I was born in a simple, lower-class family, but they are giving me so much respect. I am very grateful to them. What more can I say to the devotees?

In this way, devotees' service mood is always expanding day by day, and I am praying to Gurudev, praying to the Lord that their desire, their strongest desire is fulfilled. Even though I had to leave the head branch of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, all the devotees all over the world are still with me and when they say, "Maharaj, wherever you are, that is Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math," it gives me so much enthusiasm, so much happiness. This is the main thing for me.

So many things are still carrying on and happening now all over the world and in so many branches all over India...

Gurudev's Vyasa Puja
Is Coming
'Gurudev's lila is going on, but only the fortunate souls can see it, that is why we must engage everybody in service on his appearance day. Whatever capacity we have—with body, mind, and speech—we must serve his appearance day.'


Janama saphala ta'ra
'Krishna wears yellow garments and has a sweet smile on His face. His form enchants the world.'
জনম সফল তা'র

Our mind does not know what is the right way and what is the wrong way, that is why we must take some advice from the great Vaishnavs.
