Disturbance In Service

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

Once, two dogs set off to go from Kolkata to Ekachakra.

They tried to take a train or a bus but were chased out, so they had to run all the way to Ekachakra. They thought it would take them seven days to get there.

They had ran for a half a day and decided to stop to take some rest, but the local dogs protected their territory and did not allow them to stay anywhere, so they had to continue running. When the night came, they wanted to stay somewhere for the night, they lay by some closed shop, but even then the local dogs barked at them and they had to leave. In this way, they continued running and reached Ekachakra within one day instead of seven.

Disturbance is not bad, it can actually help in service.

Floating On the Surface
'We just come and stay in Sridhar Maharaj's temple, Gurudev's temple and do not know any conception. We float on the surface, following the desires that enter our mind—we do not go deep; but we must understand what Sridhar Maharaj made this temple for.'

 

Gurudev! krpa-bindu diya
'Gurudev, give me the strength to tolerate everything, and make me free from any desire for personal honour.'
গুরুদেব! কৃপাবিন্দু দিয়া

Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur said that pratistha is like stool of a pig. You can tolerate the stool
of a human, but the stool of a pig has a very bad smell. Pratistha is very dangerous.
