I am very happy to see you all after one week. I can see that all the devotees are here. I have been doing some preaching programme lately and came back to Kolkata last night. It is Sunday, and I decided to take a day off today, so today is my holiday [His Divine Grace laughs]—I am taking a little rest. I have not had any time to take rest, so I thought that I would take some rest today, and it happened so.

It was Sriman Mahaprabhu's sannyas day recently. It happened on poila magh as we call it in Bengal (the first day of the magh month), or 15 January this year (the day before yesterday). The date of this day actually never changes. Mahaprabhu's sannyas day (poila magh) is always on the same date every year. It is not calculated as tithi (lunar day). Sankranti is in paush mas (month of paush), this is the day when Mahaprabhu left Nabadwip for Katwa to take sannyas from Srila Keshav Bharati to teach us all, and Srimati Visnhupriya Devi gave her Lord, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, to all fallen souls like us—she showed such a great sacrifice in her life.

This day and time is extremely pathetic for all residents of Nabadwip. Even those who used to criticise Mahaprabhu also cried for Him later—at first they thought that what Mahaprabhu was doing was not good, but later, when Mahaprabhu left Nabadwip, they thought about it and understood that they had made a mistake, they had treated Mahaprabhu in a rude way. So, even those who treated Mahaprabhu bad cried for Mahaprabhu in the end.

In the times of our Param Guru Maharaj, Srila Sridhar Maharaj did not come out of his bhajan kutir for three days. During these three days, he would take only rice and some subji mixed with dal. He would not take anything opulent. Sometimes, we go out for some preaching programme and we cannot observe this—devotees make so much prasadam for us... What can we do?

This year, I had to go to Nabadwip on this day. I was in Nabadwip on 15 and 16 January because I have so much service there—I had to start the construction of a Prasadam Hall and see to the construction of the guesthouse. I have bought a land for the Prasadam Hall near the outbuilding kitchen, right next to the temple. Some money was due for that land, and I came to give the money to the owner of the land. Now I must start the construction there.

Attachment to Service or to the Self?
'They want some relation, but actually they take from the devotees more than they give. Such is this world, people always think about themselves. People do not serve properly—they come to use Gurudev, they do not come to surrender to Gurudev..'


Parama karuna
'O brother! Look! There are no benefactors in the three worlds as merciful as Them.'
পরম করুণ

The taste for the Holy Name will not come if I have some material desire in my heart.
