Another Plane of Existence

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

...What is the problem? Do service, and whatever food, prasadam, comes, take that. Those who have nobody, have Krishna (yara keu nei, tara Krsna achhe).

Look at Nitai Charan—he has become crazy, he has nothing, but he has got a one-year visa. Do you see?

Sometimes he goes from Kolkata station on foot. Another time I was going to Ganga Sagar by car and I saw him walking from the ghat to the Ganga Sagar temple. It is a thirty-kilometres' distance! Another time, I was going by car and I saw him walking again—he was very tired and could not walk so much, with his luggage behind his back. I stopped the car and asked him, "Prabhu, where are you going?!" He said, "Oh, I am going to our temple pandal." (It is also about a thirty-kilometres' distance.) I told him, "Come, get into the car!" The day before yesterday the same thing happened again—I am in the car and I see Nitai Charan walking. I told him to get into the car. I am surprised how he even knows which way the temple is! He knows everything.

Why do you think he got a one-year visa? Because Nityananda wants his service. He may be crazy, but Nityananda Prabhu wants his service, and Nityananda Prabhu is crazy Himself. He is avadhut, it means He can do anything. He can take whisky, He can take vodka, He can take a widow lady, a drunkard lady or a Muslim lady, it is not a problem for Him. He can do anything. Sometimes He wears yellow clothes, sometimes He wears blue clothes, and sometimes He changes and wears white clothes. Nityananda Prabhu changes every day. Sometimes He puts a ring into His ear, sometimes He wears some bangles, ornaments...

Bhaktivinod Thakur says, "When will I become crazy? I want that!"

কবে নবদ্বীপে সুরধুণী-তটে
'গৌর-নিত্যানন্দ' বলি' নিষ্কপটে ।
নাচিয়া গাইয়া, বেড়াইব ছুটে,
বাতুলের প্রায় ছাড়িয়া বিচার ॥

kabe navadvipe, suradhuni-tate,
'gaura-nityananda' bali' niskapate
nachiya gaiya, bedaiba chhute,
vatulera praya chhadiya vichara

"When will I wander along the banks of the Ganges in Nabadwip, sincerely calling out, 'Gaura-Nityananda!', while dancing, singing, and running about, without any thinking as though mad?"

What is this? Do you see? Bhaktivinod Thakur himself says this, and he is a magistrate, a head master of a school—he is a very educated man, and what does he say?

কবে নবদ্বীপে সুরধুণী-তটে
'গৌর-নিত্যানন্দ' বলি' নিষ্কপটে ।
নাচিয়া গাইয়া, বেড়াইব ছুটে,
বাতুলের প্রায় ছাড়িয়া বিচার ॥
কবে হবে বল, সে দিন আমার ।

kabe navadvipe, suradhuni-tate,
'gaura-nityananda' bali' niskapate
nachiya gaiya, bedaiba chhute,
vatulera praya chhadiya vichara
kabe ha'be bala se dina amara

"When will I wander along the banks of the Ganges in Nabadwip, sincerely calling out, 'Gaura-Nityananda!', while dancing, singing, and running about, without any thinking as though mad? Please tell me, when will that day be mine?"

"When will that day come when I will become crazy?" Why crazy? Crazy with chanting the Name of Nitai Gaura! "When I will become crazy chanting 'Nitai! Gaura!'?"

Sanatan-siksa: The All-Attractive Lord
'The amazing qualities of the Lord are such that even the self-satisfied, the great renounced persons are also drawn to the causeless devotion to this wondrous Lord. He is such that anyone's mind can be attracted to Him.'

 

Janama saphala ta'ra
'The birth of one who, by good fortune, has once seen Krishna is successful. Developing the heart's eyes and seeing Krishna, such a soul abandons all delusions.'
জনম সফল তা'র

A devotee always engages the jiva souls in the service to Krishna,
in the service to Guru. It is a devotee's nature.
