Always Harmonise

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj,
Sri Lalita saptami, speaking to devotees in Turkey
22 September 2012


Dandavat. Very nice, I am very happy to see you all and I am very happy with all the presentations you have sent [with Sripad Tyagi Maharaj]. I have received all kinds of presentation, donation, etc. from you all, and I am very happy with your service. Ramray Prabhu also wrote me a few words, I saw it, and I am very happy. I always appreciate you all, and I am very happy because Krishna always gives His mercy to you, Gurudev is also always with you. Whenever I see Ramray Prabhu, I can see Gurudev—I am remembering how much affection Gurudev gave to him. Gurudev was always especially affectionate to Ramray Prabhu and Turkey because he works for the service of Gurudev. To this day, he still follows Gurudev's instruction. Actually, he does not want anything for himself, he only wants everything for Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, and it makes me very happy.

Devotee: By your grace, we would like to come to India next month.

Very good! I am very happy to hear that. Come for a longer time. You can go with me to Vrindavan, Govardhan, Haridwar, Rishikesh, etc. I am going to many places this time, so take a long holiday.

It is very nice to hear from you all. Our line is Krishna consciousness and practising more and more. I know it is a little difficult for Turkey because you cannot install Deities and follow the puja properly there.

Devotee: Maharaj, would you like us to bring something for you from Turkey?

Only your mercy, love and affection.

Today is Lalita-saptami, it is a very nice day, and tomorrow is Radhastami. You know that Lalita Devi is the one who captures Radharani, who controls Radharani, Radha-Krishna's prema, etc. You know who got the mercy of Lalita Devi, who can actually serve Lalita Devi. Lalita Devi is non-different from Guru.

Once, Srila Sridhar Maharaj asked our Gurudev, Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, "What is your favourite place?" Gurudev replied, "My favourite place is Uchagaon." Uchagaon is the birthplace of Lalita Devi, it is near Govardhan and Varsana where Radharani stayed.

Gurudev told: wherever you live, wherever you stay, you must maintain your spiritual life. You can live anywhere—in a jungle, in a rich house, poor house, in the street—but you must maintain your spiritual life, you must practise your spiritual life properly. This is my message for you all. Gurudev also told: everybody must be humble, tolerant, give honour to others, and harmonise any kind of situation. Some problems will come, something will always come up, but you must manage everything with harmony, with patience. We must be always ready to manage, to harmonise any situation. Something will always come up in Krishna consciousness, but we must be ready to solve it.

Stri-Sanga and Jiva-Himsa
Two of the four regulative principles: 'You must avoid stri-sanga and purush-sanga, and from today, do not eat and do not cook any fish, meat, poultry, eggs, onion, garlic, or masoor dal. Take prasad.'


Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'The foremost devotees of Srila Visvanath Chakravarti Thakur are Srila Baladev Vidyabhusan and Srila Jagannath Das Babaji. Their dear follower is Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur. His associate is the best of the topmost devotees, Srila Gaura Kisor Das Babaji, whose sole joy is Sri Hari's service.'
কৃষ্ণ হৈতে চতুর্ম্মুখ

When a devotee surrenders, they cannot spoil anything—they cannot use their mind,
intelligence, ego, eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, ears for any other purpose.
They have to use everything for the service to the Lord, their Guru.
