Pure and Profound

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
10 May 2015, Sri Nabadwip Dham, part 2

 

We must preach about the Lord, glorify His Name, form and qualities for as long as we are alive in this world. Until our death—until we leave this body—we will try to serve our Guru, try to serve great Vaishnavs.

We must be always careful with seva-aparadh (offences during service and to service), Nama-aparadh (offences to the Name), Vaishnav-aparadh (offence to the devotees of the Lord), Dham-aparadh (offences to the holy places). We must always remember and think about these offences.

There is no place that can be compared to this Nabadwip Dham. If somebody thinks, "Oh, I have been to Darjeeling, I have been to this place, to that place, and I have also been to Nabadwip"—if somebody thinks it is all the same, they are making a Dham-aparadh. This is Nabadwip Dham. The Lord Himself wandered throughout this land, the Lord Himself appeared in this place. This is not just some temporary land, some soil, not just some houses. This place has some weight, some significance. People from all over the world come to this place to fall here on the ground, to touch, to "kiss" this land. "Nabadvipa hena grama tribhuvane nei": there is no place in this visva-bhramanda (entire material creation) that can compare with Nabadwip.

If you live in America, or if you live in Russia, it is not a problem—if you always give respect to Nabadwip Dham, if you always give respect to your Guru from there, always think about your Guru from a far away place, then you can get his association.

The abode, the pastimes, the beauty of Lord Krishna are non-different from Krishna, and this mercy can only be bestowed to you through the Guru-parampara. Only Krishna Himself or His associate can distribute this Holy Name—except Krishna and His associates there is no one else who can do it. That is why you should respect such devotees, they are the greatest donors for us. Who is the greatest donor in this world? Those who give you some clothes, some money, some food? Are they great donors? No. Great donors are those who give you Krishna consciousness. They are the Lord's very own, and they come here on the order of the Lord.

If you get this human life and only spend it on eating, sleeping, fearing, enjoying, if you only worry about money and food, then think what will become of you later. You will get next birth and will not even be able to speak—you will have to be born as some dog, sheep, cat, goat, etc. If you get this human birth and do not serve the Lord, then you will reap the result accordingly (as you sow so you reap)...

Matchless Mercy, Matchless Misfortune
'Can you see anybody as kind as Nityananda Prabhu, as kind as Gurudev? If you hear Nityananda Prabhu's glorification, tears will come automatically, stone will be melted, but our heart is so hard, nothing happens, nothing changes in us.'

 

Ki jani ki bale
'Everything is Yours. I am only a servant. Certainly You will deliver me. I have embraced Your feet and no longer belong to myself.'
কি জানি কি বলে

Read when you get time. Read the books, try to understand the conception.
