মূকং করোতি বাচালং পঙ্গুং লঙ্ঘয়তে গিরিম্ ।
যৎকৃপা তমহং বন্দে শ্রীগুরুং দীনতারণম্ ॥

mukam karoti vachalam pangum langhayate girim
yat krpa tam aham vande sri-gurum dina-taranam

"The dumb can speak, the lame can climb a hill—all it takes is mercy from Gurudev."

(Bhavartha Dipika)

ওঁ অজ্ঞানতিমিরান্ধস্য জ্ঞানাঞ্জনশলাকয়া ।
চক্ষুরুন্মিলিতং যেন তস্মৈ শ্রীগুরবে নমঃ ॥

om ajnana-timirandhasya jnananjana-salakaya
chaksur unmilitam yena tasmai sri-gurave namah

"I offer my obeisance unto Sri Gurudev, who has opened my eyes, which were blinded by the darkness of ignorance, with the salve of divine knowledge."

গুর্ব্বাভীষ্টসুপূরকং গুরুগণৈরাশীষসংভূষিতং
চিন্ত্যাচিন্ত্যসমস্তবেদনিপুণং শ্রীরূপপন্থানুগম্ ।
গোবিন্দাভিধমুজ্জ্বলং বরতনুং ভক্ত্যন্বিতং সুন্দরং
বন্দে বিশ্বগুরুঞ্চ দিব্যভগবৎ-প্রম্­ণো হি বীজপ্রদম্ ॥

gurvvabhista-supurakam guru-ganair asisa-sambhusitam
chintyachintya-samasta-veda-nipunam sri-rupa-panthanugam
govindabhidham ujjvalam vara-tanum bhakty anvitam-sundaram
vande visva-gurun cha divya-bhagavat-premno hi bija-pradam

I offer my obeisance unto he who perfectly fulfils his Gurudev's most cherished desires; who is fully adorned with the blessings of his Gurudev’s associates; who is expert in all aspects of Vedic knowledge, both conceivable and inconceivable; who is the pre-eminent follower of Srila Rupa Goswami Prabhu's line; who is known as 'Govinda'—Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj; whose beautiful, effulgent, exalted form is infused with pure devotion; who is the Guru of the entire universe; and who is the giver of the seed of divine love for the Supreme Lord.

বাঞ্ছাকল্পতরুভ্যশ্চ কৃপাসিন্ধুভ্য এব চ ।
পতিতানাং পাবনেভ্যো বৈষ্ণবেভ্যো নমো নমঃ ॥

vanchha-kalpatarubhyas cha krpa-sindhubhya eva cha
patitanam pavanebhyo vaisnavebhyo namo namah

"Again and again I offer my obeisance unto the Supreme Lord's devotees, who are saviours of the fallen, oceans of mercy, and wish-fulfilling trees."

You have now done the parikrama for two days. Actually, I have been thinking about something for a long time already... Because we rented the buses, it made it somewhat easier for you all, but if we were to walk all this distance, what state would the devotees be in? That is why we rented the buses to get to the ghat, and we walked from there; on the way back we also took the buses to the temple. So, I have been thinking since last year that I shall extend the parikrama to five days, then there will not be any problem. I am trying now to finish the Mayapur temple quickly—if it is finished, we can arrange for the devotees to stay there. There are a lot of places near it that are within a walking distance. Here in Nrisingha Palli too, I have already made the arrangement to start building one more floor with rooms, then devotees will not have to stay outside. Gurudev has given me the responsibility to look after and take care about those who stay with me, and I must remember Gurudev's order. Forgetting my own happiness, I always think what I can do to make others happy.

কবে জীবে দয়া হইবে উদয়,
নিজ সুখ ভুলি' সুদীন-হৃদয়

kabe jive daya haibe udaya,
nija-sukha bhuli' sudina-hrdaya

"When will compassion to all souls arise in my heart and I forget my own happiness?"

('Kabe habe bolo, se dina amar?')

I always think about your benefit, and that is why I always chastise you. I read Prabhupad's books and then tell you what he says, urging you all to listen to it. Sometimes I say harsh things, but I do it to bring you to the true path without any hodge-podge practices (panchmisali bhajan, পাঁচমিশালি ভজন). I go preaching to many places, and perhaps two-five thousand people have accepted Krishna consciousness, but if I was to go and say, "Do what you want, eat what you want. Take initiation from me!" then I would have millions of disciples, but they would get no benefit—they would have to go to hell, and I would have to go to hell as well.

You have seen today that when we came to the temple of Jagannath, many went straight to the bus. The temple was closed at that time, so I first arranged for everybody to take prasadam—if we had waited for the temple to open first, then the prasadam would have gone off, and everybody was also hungry by the time we had got there. You must understand that we go there to get the darshan of Jagannath mandir...

That is why, if we can extend the parikrama for one more day—if we could stay in Mayapur for two days and then take a bus and come back here, then there would not be any problem. I am thinking about you, and I will try to finish the construction there quickly.

Niskam Bhakti: With Heart and Soul
'Do not show false renunciation, devotion must be in the heart. Love with heart and soul—serve heart and soul. If you show you are doing some service, but in your mind you are asking for something else from the Lord, from your Guru, it is not niskam bhakti.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'To the Supreme Lord, whose form is the embodiment of eternal existence, knowledge, and bliss, whose shark-shaped earrings are swinging to and fro, who is beautifully shining in the divine realm of Gokula, who [due to the offence of breaking the pot of yogurt that his mother was churning into butter and then stealing the butter that was kept hanging from a swing] is quickly running from the wooden grinding mortar in fear of Mother Yasoda, but who has been caught from behind by her who ran after Him with greater speed—to that Supreme Lord, Sri Damodara, I offer my humble obeisances.'

If you say, 'I am a disciple of Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj' but do not follow his order, do not follow his request, how can you can say that?
