You preach Krishna consciousness, and I am very happy to see your preaching mood.

জীবে দয়া, নামে রুচি, বৈষ্ণব সেবা ।
ইহা বহি সনাতন নাহি আর ধর্ম্ম ॥

jive daya name ruchi vaisnava seva
iha bahi sanatana nahi ara dharma

"Be merciful to the souls, chant the Holy Name, and serve the Vaishnavs. Sanatan, besides this, there is no other religion."

For preaching you go door to door, and you should tell people, "We have not come to you for you to help us. We have come to you to help you." That is the main thing. We do not go to people's houses for their money or property. Actually, we are big thieves and dacoits because we go to their houses to take them and send them to the real place.

Gurudev gave me some service, but I am very happy that you take a share, a part of this service because it is impossible for me to preach all over the world alone. Part by part, you all help me, and for me it is a very great help, and I am very happy with that.

You should try to come to India also, you have not come for so many years. I know you work very hard, you preach, and there is so much struggle for you. You work, you wife works, you have to send your children to school—there are so many things in a family life, I know that; you also maintain the temple, you do preaching. These are not easy things—I know what it is like to preach, and what it is like to maintain a family. Maintaining a temple is not so easy, but you do it all, and I am very happy.

Aprakrita Prabhu has left his body, and one of my pillars is gone, broken. I feel very sad. Also, after that Sripad Narayan Maharaj from Mauritius came to Malaysia from time to time, but he also left his body. Everybody is going to leave us, but I am still alive, and Krishna helps me through you all. That is my happiness. I think Krishna keeps me alive, gives me life because He needs me, but when His work through me is finished, then I will also have to leave this world... But I am still alive, and I am always with you all, I am always at your service. I am a fallen soul, but you are all keeping me in your heart, that is my happiness, that is my great fortune.

Not everybody has that kind of fortune—not everybody can do service, not everybody can join service and do proper preaching. Preaching is the main thing. Many people can make a temple, but it is necessary to preach. You can make a thousand temples, it is not a problem, but if you make one devotee, it is has more value. It is easy to make a thousand temples, but what is the use if you do not do Vaishnav seva? You can feed ten thousand people but if there is no Vaishnav there, that is not a festival, that is not a mahotsav; but if you can give prasadam to even one Vaishnav, one devotees, that is a great festival.

 

Question: Tomorrow we are having our Ratha-yatra festival. Could you please give us your blessing?

I am always with you, I am always there. My body is not there, but my heart, my mind, and my everything is there. I can still remember and I am remembering which way the chariot will go...

May Krishna always bless you.

I am very happy with you all. Continue your spiritual life as you are doing now. Encourage people, encourage devotees. You bring many people to the lotus feet of Gurudev, and it is very nice—it is my happiness.

Strong Foundation
A strong foundation in one's spiritual life is very important. How can it be built, and how can those who do not have such a strong foundation survive in their spiritual life?

 

Sujanarvuda-radhita-pada-yugam
'He is the best of the paramahamsas and the guardian of the supreme wealth (Krsna-prema). He accepted the robes of a sannyasi to deliver the fallen. His feet are served by the best of the sannyasis. Eternally I offer my obeisance to my master's feet.'
সুজনার্ব্বুদরাধিতপাদযুগং

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Give up attachment to material activity and endeavours based on knowledge and yoga. Avoid 'monkey renunciation', in which there is only bodily enjoyment.”

 

Gurudev can do everything for you, but our problem is that we cannot
properly, 100%, surrender to our Guru.
