I am very happy with the foreign devotees because they come every year, they are with me, and they too face some problem—they have put court cases against Sripad Tyagi Maharaj, Srila Ashram Maharaj, Srila Avadhut Maharaj, Deva Bandhu Prabhu, many ladies also (Jamuna Priya Didi, Sanatani Didi, Nanda Priya Didi, Sudevi Didi, Laksmi Kanti Didi, Lavanya Mayi Didi), one South African Mukunda Prabhu, Aravinda Lochan Prabhu, Mahananda Prabhu (Madhusudan Maharaj) and many others.

We have taken initiation from Gurudev, we did not take initiation from a temple, so we will go wherever Gurudev is. That is our main things. Everything will happen according to the desire of Gurudev. Krishna will protect Gurudev's mission, Guru Maharaj will protect his mission. I have a 100%, 200% faith in that.

I am very happy with you all, and I always invite you all—you can always come. You may think, "Where will I stay?" but by the mercy of Gurudev we have so many temples—not only in Kolkata, there is a temple in Tarakeshwar near Kolkata, there is a temple in Ekachakra, Siliguri, etc. There are so many facilities, so many places. You can come and stay longer here, it is not a problem for me at all. If you want to stay here for a longer time and do service, I always welcome you all. I am always with you.

You can see also now that all those who are Gurudev's enemies—who were rejected by Gurudev, who Gurudev got pain from—are now together and when we were passing their parikrama I saw who was there—all those who disturbed Gurudev in Guru Maharaj's time, all those who were ousted have now come together. How will I go there and mix with them? How shall I see their faces? I can tolerate my godbrothers who are doing wrong, but how shall I tolerate those who are enemies of my Gurudev? When they were rejected in Srila Sridhar Maharaj's time, how can I tolerate them? I can tolerate those who give some problem to me, but how shall I tolerate those who made problems in Guru Maharaj's time? How can I face them? That is my main thing. If somebody secretly goes there and mixes with them, getting involved in some politics, they can do it, I do not have any objection—they will get the result for it. If somebody eats fire, they will pass coal as stool. I always pray that they will may become good, that they may be reformed.

Gurudev told them if they wanted to make disciples they had to go outside Chaitanya Saraswat Math. Why should they disturb Chaitanya Saraswat Math? They came to disturb Chaitanya Saraswat Math, they did not come to serve Chaitanya Saraswat Math. They have come to Chaitanya Saraswat Math for bhog, enjoyment—for their own interest, their own benefit. That is very bad for us. People come from Nabadwip and give news—they have cut many trees, they have sold many cow, they do not take care of Guru Maharaj's things, they do not even clean the rooms, yesterday also when we were passing by in the parikrama I saw that they broke a wall near the five-storey Sevak Bhavan and people are using it now for bathing there. They are doing this, it is OK, it is their karma and they will get the result for that.

Jay Srila Guru Maharaj.
Harinam sankirtan ki jay.

Do Not Fear Service
Some may be afraid they can be given service that they cannot do, but is there anything to be afraid of?


Sri-krsna-chaitanya prabhu jive daya kari'
'Engaging only in activities that are favourable to devotion, rejecting everything unfavourable to devotion...'
শ্রীকৃষ্ণচৈতন্য প্রভু
জীবে দয়া করি'

Making offences to the Holy Name is not chanting the Holy Name; these are different
things. When you give up the offences, your relationship with your Guru
will become very strong and then no offence can come to you.
