Partake in Service Joy

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

Evening, 24 March 2016

 

Today by the mercy of Gurupad, we have one more time finished the parikrama, Gaura Purnima maha-mahotsav, and Jagannath Mishra's anada maha-mahotsav. The festivals went properly, successful, and without any problem with the help of all the devotees and also by the mercy of Gurudev, Guru Maharaj. Actually we do not do anything—everything belongs to the Lord and Gurudev and they do everything. This is how by the blessing of our Gurupadpadma we have completed these festivals.

Also, Gurudev's disappearance festival is very soon, on the dvadasi day, 18 April (Monday), and we are inviting everybody to take part in it. Many Vaishnavs will come here on this day. Festivals do not happen every day, so please try to come...

Everybody should help this festival. A festival means we come to serve. If somebody helps and does service, they get even more pleasure. Those who cook prasad, distribute prasad, and those who just sit and take prasad, but do not cook or distribute it—this is not the same, it is two different things. Some come for the festival and only do the parikrama and take prasadam, but when somebody does parikrama, listens to Hari-katha and also does some service, they get a great benefit, a great pleasure and happiness.

When somebody hears Hari-katha and gets pleasure in doing service of the Lord, there is no one as fortunate as them. Service brings pleasure, joy.

Gift of Service
'Mercy comes through desire. If you have a strongest desire, you will serve your Lord, your Guru, and Krishna, Guru will take your service. But if there comes even a little distance from our service, Maya is always ready: as soon as Maya gets some place, you will be immediately attacked by her.'

 

Gurudev! krpa-bindu diya
'When I examine myself for qualifications, I find none. Your mercy is everything.'
গুরুদেব! কৃপাবিন্দু দিয়া

What is your work, you do that, what is your service, you do that,
and all other time you only chant Hare Krishna maha-mantra.
