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.

The Soul's Misery
'Illusory environment means we are covered by an illusory net and we forget everything. Overcoming this illusory environment will depend on the quality of our surrender.'

 

Samsara-davanala
'I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who is always satisfied by satisfying the Lord's devotees with the four types of tasteful Bhagavat-prasad.'

If you think you know everything, that is a big problem. That is ego, and the ego eats
everything, takes everything away—your ego takes you to hell! Ego is the only problem.
