I always remember Alwarnath Prabhu and how much service he did for the devotees. He may have left his body here, but Gurudev always keeps a room for him in his place.

He made a dome here, he did so much service here, and I think his service was necessary in Goloka Vrindavan, that is why Gurudev called him, and he went there. I am thinking he knows how to make a house, he knows how to make a temple dome, and I am sure Gurudev needed him for his service there—maybe it is necessary to make a dome there, and Gurudev called him, so he left his body and went there.

Remembering his service, remember Chhota Haridas. When Chhota Haridas committed suicide, left his body, Mahaprabhu wanted to hear him sing, and Chhota Haridas sang a song. Everybody was surprised and wondered what was happening, but Mahaprabhu said, "You must believe Me: My devotee does not leave Me, My devotee always stays with Me." "Na me bhaktah pranasyati." [Bg, 9.31] Krishna Himself said, "My devotee is never vanquished. My devotee always stays with Me, and My devotee is never ruined."

 


The new domes that Alwarnath Prabhu and the devotees made for
the Parama Karuna temple in Caracas, Venezuela.

'Even if your enemy comes to your house from far away, you must at least give them some prasad, some sweet rice, some Tulasi, water, and talk to them sweetly.'

 

Sri-krsna-chaitanya prabhu jive daya kari'
'Being merciful to the souls, Sri Krsna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu descends with His associates and abode.'

জীবে দয়া করি'

You have to think you are worse, lower than a blade of grass, and you have to leave your ego and give honour to others.
