His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Nrisingha Palli, 3 February 2021, part 8
Translated from Bengali


You must practise Krishna consciousness in this way. Stay always within service and always engage in sravan (hearing) and kirtan (practising, chanting). This is our life every day. Do your service and you must engage in sravan and kirtan. Those who practise sravan and kirtan, gradually become firm and fixed in their spiritual life and service, they get the taste. There is no need to worry about it. Practising sravan and kirtan (listening to Hari-katha and chanting the Holy Name, practising what is preached) removes all unwanted elements. This is the main result. When unwanted elements leave, you will feel peace. As long as you have unwanted, inauspicious elements within you, you will not know peace...

Vraja gopis gave very much respect to Prahlad Maharaj. Srila Prabhupad Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur himself also spoke about Prahlad Maharaj when he was at Radha Kunda. Prahlad Maharaj's devotion is extremely exclusive, one-pointed. He did not know anything except the Lord, he did not understand anything except the Lord. Such mood must be there: "I do not know anyone except the Lord." The Lord says in Gita too, "I only know My devotees, and My devotees also do not know anyone except Me." Krishna Himself said that. That is why we always recite verse 18.66 from Gita,

সর্ব্বধর্ম্মান্ পরিত্যজ্য মামেকং শরণং ব্রজ ।
অহং ত্বাং সর্ব্বপাপেভ্যো মোক্ষয়িষ্যামি মা শুচঃ ॥

sarva-dharman parityajya, mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva-papebhyo, moksayisyami ma suchah

"Give up all kinds of religion and surrender to Me alone. I will liberate you from all sins, do not despair."

Leave all religions—father's religion, mother's religion, friend's religion, demigods' religion, rishis' religion, sannyasis' religion, brahmachari's religion, householders' religion, ksatriyas' religion, vaisyas' religion, sudras' religion. Leave all kinds of religion and only practise Krishna consciousness one-pointedly. Leave all religions and surrender to Me; I will look after you. Always remember this. "I will take care of you."

Disappearance of Srila Haridas Thakur
'Prabhu, do not give me Maya. I know you love me so much, that is why I do not want to hear from You any further. Please give me some mercy—I want to go before You. Please, Prabhu, fulfil my desire.'


Ye anila prema-dhana
'Where has Advaita Acharya, the Lord who mercifully brought the wealth of divine love to this world, gone?'

Every year we think we will join this festival next year, but only Krishna knows
whether we can join or not.
