Be Careful and Conscious

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

"Sabadhana vando re bhai, aparadha haya na yena" means you must be careful when you worship your Guru, be careful so that an offence does not come. Guru means Radharani, so when you worship Radharani be careful. Do you understand? It is a very high conception.

In another song, we sing, "Kevali ananda-kanda Nitai ar Gaurachandra." Why do we feel so much ananda, so much happiness today? Nityananda and Gaurachanda have come, that is why we are very, very happy, we feel so much ananda, joy.

visaya chhadiya se rase majiya
mukhe bala hari hari

Mahaprabhu told Raghunath Das Goswami,

গ্রাম্যকথা না শুনিবে, গ্রাম্যবার্ত্তা না কহিবে ।
ভাল না খাইবে আর ভাল না পরিবে ॥

gramya-katha na sunibe, gramya-varta na kahibe
bhala na khaibe ara bhala na paribe

"Do not listen to the mundane talks, do not listen to the mundane news. Do not eat fancy food, do not wear fancy clothes."

(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, Antya-lila, 6.236-237)

And we sing too, "Visaya-katha parihari." Visaya-katha means nonsense talks. We must not talk nonsense, we should avoid many talks, and only say, "Krishna", "Nitai and Gour!" Do not talk about other things, about material things, only think about Nitai and Gour. This is the meaning of these words, "Visaya-katha parihari mukhe bala Hari Hari." Then we sang,

dekha ore bhai tribhuvane nai
emana dayala data

You can see many kind people in the world but you cannot find anyone as kind as Nityananda Prabhu anywhere. Who is as kind as He is? Nitai and Gour go house to house distributing His Name.

Moreover, "Mar kheyeo nam prema yache!" I have told it before, "mar kheyeo" means Madhai was beating Nityananda, but Nityananda said, "It is OK, you can beat Me, no problem, but say, 'Hare Krishna!'" Even thought they are beating Him, still He says, "OK, you can beat Me again, no problem, but say, 'Hare Krishna!'" When somebody beats you, you get angry against them, but Nityananda is not angry—He says, "Beat Me again, but say, 'Hare Krishna!'"

pasu pakhi jhure pasana vidare
suniya ra guna-gatha

Pasu means beasts, like deer, cows, dogs, etc., and pakhi are birds. So, even birds, even beasts chant and cry, but we are so cruel, our heart is harder than a stone (pasana) because we hear about Krishna, about Lord Nitai, Lord Gauranga, but we are not crying...

There are fifteen days when Jagannath temple is closed. The Jagannath people say that Jagannath has a fever during this time, but we think that during these days they are making the temple of Jagannath and all the preparations. So, they close the temple the day after snan-yatra and open it only one day before Ratha-yatra. Mahaprabhu cried so much—He goes to the Jagannath temple every day, but at that time the temple is closed and He cannot go to see Jagannath, He was very upset. One day, Jagannath Himself told to Mahaprabhu, "Come to Alarnath, You can see Me there!" So, Mahaprabhu went to Alarnath. When He came there, He was crying for Jagannath so much that when He paid dandavat at the Alarnath temple, so much ecstasy came to Him that even the whole stone melted under His body. You can see that stone there even now also...

Floating On the Surface
'We just come and stay in Sridhar Maharaj's temple, Gurudev's temple and do not know any conception. We float on the surface, following the desires that enter our mind—we do not go deep; but we must understand what Sridhar Maharaj made this temple for.'


Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is nondifferent from Sri Sri Radha-Krsna and is the very life of Sri Rupa's followers. Srila Svarup Damodar Goswami, Srila Rupa Goswami Prabhu, and Srila Sanatan Goswami Prabhu are most dear to Visvambhar.'
কৃষ্ণ হৈতে চতুর্ম্মুখ

If you know the meaning of the song, you will always get energy to do kirtan;
if you just sing a song, you will not that energy.
