Chanting: Any Place

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
5 April 2013, Sri Puri Dham

 

Did you see the Deity in the Gambhira? It is Radha-Kanta Math—when you just enter it, there is a Deity that was worshipped by Kashi Mishra's pujari named Gopal. That same Deity is still there.

One day Mahaprabhu went to the bathroom with His tongue stuck out between His teeth. When Gopal saw this, he asked,

"Prabhu, is there any problem? Why are You going to the bathroom with Your tongue like this?"

"Prabhu, I am going to the bathroom, it is a dirty place, but My tongue is very naughty—even at this time it wants to chant the Holy Name! That is why I am trying to check My tongue."

"Prabhu, what is this? You can chant the Holy Name everywhere, even in the bathroom!"

"Yes! You are correct! From today, your name is not Gopal, your name will be Gopal Guru!"

Sri Guru's Order
'Wherever you live, you can practise your spiritual life. The main thing is to follow the order of your Guru. When you receive an order from Gurudev, that becomes your duty. Our Rupanuga-sampradaya Guru, he came from the transcendental abode, but when he was here we could not understand that...'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Lord, although You are able to give all kinds of benedictions, I do not pray to you for the boon of impersonal liberation, nor the highest liberation of eternal life in Vaikuntha, nor any other boon [which may be obtained by executing the nine processes of bhakti]. O Lord, I simply wish that this form of Yours as Bala Gopala in Vrndavana may ever be manifest in my heart, for what is the use to me of any other boon besides this?'

The taste for the Holy Name will not come if I have some material desire in my heart.
