Love Your Service
"The main thing is that we must do the service that the Guru and Vaishnavs want me to do and engage me in. The Guru and Vaishnavs tell us to do something, we may feel unhappy doing it, but we must not leave the service because of that."

Always Ready, Always Eager
"We must be like soldiers—we must be always ready to serve the Lord, to serve Gurudev's mission. We do not come to judge who is a Vaishnav and who is not a Vaishnav—we cannot understand it, neither is it our duty to do it. Our main question is how much we can do for the service to our Guru and Vaishnav."

ওঁ বিষ্ণুপাদ শ্রী শ্রীল ভক্তি নির্ম্মল আচার্য্য মহারাজের পদ্মমুখনিঃসৃত শ্রীহরিকথামৃত: "আমি জানি আপনারা গৃহস্থ ভক্ত—দীক্ষা নিয়ে কেউ বাড়িতে গুরুদেবকে ফুল দিচ্ছেন, ঠাকুরকে পূজা করছেন, ঠাকুরকে ভোগ দিয়ে প্রসাদ পাচ্ছেন, সেটা আমি অস্বীকার করছি না । কিন্তু সেটা সম্পূর্ণ নয় । সম্পূর্ণ জিনিস তো কখন হবে ? যখন আপনারা নিজের মন, প্রাণ, হৃদয়, দেহ, আমা, বুদ্ধি, অনঙ্কার, সমস্ত কিছু গুরুদেবের চরণের, গোবিন্দের চরণের সুখে নিবেদন করবেন ।"

First Visit to Sri Puri Dham
"This temple was made by the mercy of Gurudev, although it is a very small temple, but it is very nice and sweet. I came to Puri first time through service—without service Gurudev would not have sent me here and I would not come myself."

Disciple's Sambandha, Abhidheya, Prayojan
"The relation between a disciple and the guru is eternal. You must understand this relation and you must understand that this relation is eternal. If you want to surrender properly, you must give your body, soul, mind, ego—everything—to your Guru."

Pure Kirtan Comes from Pure Heart
"Kirtan is not singing. Kirtan means making the Lord happy. You must be a proper, honest disciple. Your heart must be open. If you have something in your heart, if your heart is dirty or there are many obstacles in your heart, then you will not be able to hear Gurudev properly—it will go into one ear and out the other."

Atyahara
"I used to think before that atyahara means eating too much, but here Srila Rupa Goswami and Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur explain it very nicely. If you translate the word 'atyahara', it means 'eating too much', but it is not only that."

Wrong Endeavour
"Proper devotees pass their time with Krishna-katha, and at all other times they chant the Holy Name or think about their service, about spiritual things. A person may be doing some pious activities, but it is not devotion. Bhakti means doing service to the Lord under the guidance of a guru."

Surrendered Soul's Appeal
"A jiva soul is greater than Maya because it worships the Lord, but Maya is very powerful as she gets much power from the Lord. So, sometimes a jiva soul that is covered by the illusory environment gets caught in the net of Maya..."

A New Lease of Life
'When you get association of a sadhu you understand that you have wasted all your time on maya. Maya has always been taking our time, and we have been always listening to her instruction, but now, by sadhu-sanga, we understand that we did wrong...'

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Crying, the Lord's angry Jaga says, 'O devotees! Serve the Name and chant the Name!'”

Devotion depends upon the quality of faith: if you have 100% faith in Krishna,
you are a 100% devotee.
