Actually, this year we are doing very well, preaching. Devotees are also preaching all over the world, and I am very happy with their activities. Here in India we have made many festivals in all temples, and this year we have actually almost finished two temples, in Takareshwar and Nrisingha Palli.

In January-February we want to inaugurate the temple in Tarakeshwar, and in Nrisingha Palli there are still some works that are not finished. We are trying to finish quickly before Gaura Purnima, and it is my wish that I must inaugurate the Nrisingha Palli temple soon. Next to our new temple there is only Nrisinghadev's temple, there are not any other temples in the area, so all Gaudiya Maths are very happy to see it.

Tarakeshwar is the place where Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur got a message from Lord Siva. He wanted to go to Vrindavan, but Lord Siva gave him a message, "Why are you going to Vrindavan? What for? What is your duty, what is your service there? Do not go there. You must discover the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, that is your duty, that is your service." Gurudev is also a son of Lord Siva, he always prays to Lord Siva. He told me, "If you want to make something in Govinda Kunda, you must make a Sada Siva Gangadhar temple there," and I made it. For these reasons I think Tarakeshwar is a good place. Tarakeshwar is the name of Sivji Maharaj's temple there, the land that we got is near it. Our temple is almost finished, and soon, in January or maybe first week in February I must inaugurate it.

I am always running, I cannot and I do not want to stop. I do not want to stop my service until my death, this is my service. Now that the two temples are finished, I will get some relief and can go preaching. This year, I am starting preaching from 4 January. I have been recently preaching in the North Bengal and near Ekachakra. In one place, in an open field, in the shade under a tree, I gave initiation to thirty people. It was a very nice place. So, I am starting preaching from 4 January and next I am thinking to go to Ganga Sagar and make the inauguration anniversary festival there on 12 January...

Rescue, Recruit, and Retain
'We joined Krishna's family and we must now increase our family. By hook or by crook, we must make new devotees and show them the right path, teach them the proper devotional activities, then they can easily go to their own home.'


'I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who daily engages himself and other devotees in dressing the Deity with various ornaments, cleaning the Deity's temple, and performing other devotional practices.'

When somebody does not practise devotional activities, their mind always goes
to the bad things, and it becomes impossible for them to get the good qualities.
