I am very glad that you come every year, and that every year you make the effort thinking, "How can I come for the parikrama every year?" Perhaps, you put aside one-two or ten rubles every day to save for your plane fare to come for the parikrama. I am very happy that you come. May Krishna bless you.

You are all in my heart, there is no doubt about it because we all come from the same family. We are not a separate family—we are all from the same family. You may be living in Russia, I may be living in India, that is not a question, but thinking, "You are Russian, I am Indian," or "He is Indian, we are Russian" is not Krishna consciousness. We all come from the same place and we all must go to the same place—that is Krishna consciousness.

I pray to everybody, and I pray to the Lord, I pray to Gurudev, that you can come for this Nabadwip Dham parikrama, for the Vrindavan, Govardhan parikramas every year.

Tomorrow you are going to do the parikrama in Ekachakra, after that you are going to Puri. I am very happy about that. Everything is good, but only I pray to Lord Jagannath, "When will the revolution come and Western devotee will be able to enter the temple of Jagannath?" They can only see Jagannath during the Ratha-yatra time, it is very rare and also fortunate—on this day Jagannath distributes His mercy all over the world. If you can, try to come at the Ratha-yatra time. I want your association at that time also. Come to India at that time.

Preaching Guidance: Main Priority
'You must give priority to sankirtan, that will be good for you. Through sankirtan you can conquer everything. Do not lose your time. Day after day we are losing our time, but we must use it properly, for the service to Guru, Gauranga, and Nityananda.'

 

Sujanarvuda-radhita-pada-yugam
'He is Srimati Radharani's beloved servant. I hold on my head the dust of his tremendous, wondrously purifying feet and eternally offer my obeisance to them.'
সুজনার্ব্বুদরাধিতপাদযুগং

If you make a mistake and Gurudev chastises you, but out of ego you do not
understand it and think you did right, it becomes a problem for your service life.
