Fight Your Ego

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Kolkata, 13 December 2020, part 5


How many more days will they sleep in the lap of Maya Devi? They must preach! Only working, working, running behing money, running behind ego—it is not good. They must come to the programmes. I am strictly telling them—if this time is bad for them and they are sleeping at this time, OK, I am always here on Sunday, I can give them another time, they must tell what is the proper time. There is nothing for them to worry. They are Gurudev's devotees, they must do something for their practising life. If you always search others' faults—this fault, that fault, etc.—the whole life will finish in this way, and one day death will come and you will not be able to overcome it.

This is necessary. They must listen to Hari-katha. If they think, "We know everything!" then they have a big problem. They can ask me some questions, I can ask them some questions. "I know everything!"—this is not my idea. I do not know anything, but I have got something by the mercy of Gurudev and from all the senior Vaishnavs and leaders. Here is Srila Janardan Maharaj, Srila Ashram Maharaj, they are senior leaders—devotees can listen from them, they can meet with them, and ask them questions. Such communication is necessary for everyone.

Are there any questions from anyone?

Devotee: Jay Nitai, Maharaj!

Jay Nitai?! Do not say this! We say "Nitai Gaura Hari bol." Sahajiya people say "Jay Nitai." It is not your fault—you must have heard it somewhere that they say, "Jay Nitai," but we do not follow sahajiyaism. We do not say, "Radhe Radhe!", "Jay Nitai!" You know, when you go to Vrindavan, you see some come there, put big black tilaks, wear kanthi malas, hang an uttariya on their neck and walk about proudly, "I am a great big Vaishnav/Vaishnavi!" Such people go about saying, "Radhe Radhe!" They think they have come to Vrindavan, so they have got everything—they know more than everyone else...

Becoming Haridas
'The main problem is that everybody wants to be a Haridas, but nobody wants to be a dasanudas (servant of the servants), nobody wants to be a Gurudas (servant of the Guru), nobody wants to be a Vaishnavdas (servant of the Vaishnavs)..'

কৃষ্ণ হৈতে চতুর্ম্মুখ

We have got much time for the service to the Lord, but maya is taking her share.
