Servitor's Chastity

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
22 May 2018, Siliguri, part 4


We must leave our ego. If you do not give up your ego, you will not get the result. When your boat becomes too heavy (you have too much ego), it will sink. Ego must go away through service and practise. If you do service and ego does not go away, then you can understand that this is not service.

Ego destroys everything and removes us from service, so it must be given up. You do service for one day and start thinking, "Oh, I am the manager! I am so big!" What is not right. We are only servitors. Whatever service the Lord gives, that is good. We are not enjoyers and we are not renunciates—we are servitors and we must think like servitors. We are not managers, we are not in charge of the Math. If you do not understand this, you are in danger. We must always think about this.

"Sukhe duhkhe bhulo nako vadane Harinam koro re: in happiness or sadness, never forget it, always chant the Holy Name..."

The temple here was opened in 2007 and since then you have heard so many things here, but actually the real and proper conception and chastity have not come yet. First it is necessary to be sincere, then detachment must come, then taste. After these three, chastity comes. Very few people have chastity—those who have chastity do not know anything except Krishna consciousness, except this conception, do not understand anything except it. Gopis were like that, and such mood must come to us...

Poison, Wood, and Sugarcane
'Surrender must be sincere, not pretending: we pay our full obeisance to Gurudev, but when we get up we do whatever our mind wants to do and do not follow our Guru.'


Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'By such childhood pastimes as this He is drowning the inhabitants of Gokula in pools of ecstasy, and is revealing to those devotees who are absorbed in knowledge of His supreme majesty and opulence that He is only conquered by devotees whose pure love is imbued with intimacy and is free from all conceptions of awe and reverence. With great love I again offer my obeisances to Lord Damodara hundreds and hundreds of times.'

Gurudev said, 'Not to use me! I will use you.'
