I am very happy to see you all today again. I can see all the devotees are here. My health is good, but I talked too much yesterday—there were too many programmes, meetings, and phone calls from all over the world. All the devotees wanted to reach me yesterday, even Indian devotees called me from early morning until midnight. This is devotees' love and affection. It gives me inspiration.

Actually, I am very fortunate—Gurudev has chosen me (this dog) for his service. I was born in a rural village surrounded by many rivers, and there was not even any tradition to make any birthday ceremonies. They only make a festival six days after a baby is born, and after that not; but now, in my old age, they are making birthday festivals for me—I am getting really shy.

All the senior devotees always give their love and affection to me, and I am also trying to keep them in my heart—I know Gurudev gave so much nourishment to foreign devotees. After 2010, there have been so many problems at the temple, but now I have distanced myself a little from the problems. Despite the pandemic situation now, I can still reach almost all devotees all over the world, I can talk with you every Sunday, and it is very nice for me, it gives me much inspiration. This Sunday, I also did not stay out—I came to Kolkata because the network signal is good here, and stayed here. I am happy with that. So many places are making festivals today and they invited me to join them. Every place has gathered four-five hundred people. I had told them not to make a festival (I told them that I could not stop their guru-puja, but I told them not to try to make a festival), but they still made festivals—they spoke Hari-katha and distributed prasadam to three-five hundred people. I did not join any temple's festival, I chose to join virtual programmes through technical tools (skype, zoom, mobile phone). I have joined almost all places and have seen how devotees have made festivals. I am getting the news today. I have also been reading little by little the messages that devotees have sent through the Internet (Sri Vyasa Puja Offerings). I see how much love and affection devotees give to Gurudev, and that love and affection is coming to me.

I must have done something before—I have got some sukriti—that is why I have got now this opportunity to serve my Gurudev, to try to serve him. That is my happiness. At least I can try to be all devotees' servitor—they engage me in their service... I have promised to my Gurudev, "Until there is even one drop of blood in this body, I will serve your mission, I will serve your devotees," and I am trying to do it to the best of my ability.

I have not had any connection with the place where my father, brother live, I have not seen them for more than thirty years, but I have got a big family all over the world, and that is more important for me. Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math is my real family. I am very fortunate, very lucky and very grateful. I am pleased with everyone's effort to serve their Gurudev's mission. It gives me energy to continue my service. I will try to serve all the devotees to the best of my ability until my death, until the moment I leave this body. That is my promise.

Vaishnavs:
Not What They Seem
The only path for us is to surrender and take association of a Vaishnav, but if we cannot recognise Vaishnavs with our eyes, what can we then recognised them with?

 

Gurudev! krpa-bindu diya
'When will this soul attain such mercy and become fulfilled? I am devoid of ability and intelligence, and greatly distressed. Please accept me.'
গুরুদেব! কৃপাবিন্দু দিয়া

It is necessary to distribute Krishna-katha and clean their hearts—make a temple
in their hearts!
