"Take Me As Your Own"

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Speaking online to the devotees in Ecuador
16 October 2011, part 1


Devotee: We are your family, we love you. I am your disciple, I am your servant.

Prabhu, I am your servant. You are a disciple of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaj Prabhupad—I want to serve you. If you can allow me to serve you, I will be even happier.

Devotees: Thank you, Maharaj, but we are only your servants...

We are in the same family, Prabhu. You are in my heart. If you can take me, with love and affection, as your servant, as your own man, that is my happiness, that is my joy.

You are doing today this programme, and I am very happy to see you all, to see your smiling faces and your good mood, it is very nice, it makes me very happy. I can see you all today and it makes me happy—I can feel my Gurudev and feel that Gurudev is giving mercy to me otherwise why would so many devotees keep me? I do not have any qualification or quality, but simply because devotees have love and affection for Gurudev, because they think about Gurudev, give support to Gurudev, give support to Guru Maharaj, they follow Gurudev line—for these reasons they keep me. I am a bad boy, but devotees keep me in their hearts. It is my very good luck and good fortune.

I also want to learn Spanish, I do not always get a good teacher, I hope that later I can give lectures in Spanish language. When Spanish people come, they always speak with me in English, but I want to be able to speak Bengali, Spanish, that is good. Sometimes also some devotees do not understand my language, and I do not understand their language, but it is a heart to heart connection—I can realise what they want and they can realise what I want without any language. No language is actually necessary. Just as a dog and the dog's master—the dog's language is different, and the master's language is different, but the master knows what his dog wants and the dog knows what its master wants.

Service and Karma
'Sometimes some service comes to you, and you are not satisfied with it, you want to do something else, but here is an example from Gurudev's times...'


'He wears a peacock feather crown and yellow garments. He holds the flute and lifts the Govardhan Hill!'

If we imitate what Krishna does, then we become sahajiyas.
