Strongest Faith (1)

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
10 May 2015, Sri Nabadwip Dham, part 6

 

One time, Gurudev was going outside Nabadwip. He came out of his room and got into his car. When I saw the car, I was in the office downstairs. I came out and paid obeisance to him. As I was paying obeisance, Gurudev asked me, "Will you go with me?" and I asked, "Where?" I only asked him where, but he said, "You are foolish. You do not have 100% surrender. Your Guru asks you if you will go with him, but you are asking where. Even if I go to hell, you must go to hell with me!"

Gurudev taught so many things...

"Sraddha-anusari bhakti-adhikari (শ্রদ্ধা-অনুসারী ভক্তি-অধিকারী, Chaitanya-charitamrita, 2.22.64)—devotion comes through sraddha, faith. This is the main thing. What devotion you will have depends on what faith you have—the more faith in the Lord you have, the more devotion you will get.

The price for devotion is faith—you must buy devotion with faith. You cannot buy devotion with money, wealth, etc., you must pay with faith—the strongest faith. We can see examples of it in Mukunda's son Raghunandan, Gopal Bhatta Goswami's dvadas silas (twelve sila Deities)....

Lord Jagannath: Deity Appearance
'Kind Indradyumna built the Jagannath temple and thought, 'Where is the Lord?! The Lord said, 'I will come,' but He is not coming!''

 

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

Actually, the main question is how much of your life can you give to your Guru?
