A Miracle. A Joy.

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
Kolkata, speaking online to
devotees in Caracas (Venezuela),
9 June 2019, part 1

 

I am very happy to see everybody, very nice. By the mercy of Parama Karuna Nitai Gaurachandra Prabhu, you are still there despite such a difficult situation in Caracas, Venezuela. You are suffering so much because of financial and other problems, but still you are practising Krishna consciousness, and this is very nice—it gives me so much happiness, so much enthusiasm, and so much energy to see you all. Moreover, you are adamant to take shelter of Gurudev, to take shelter of Parama Karuna Nitai Gaurachandra—what can I say? If I say it makes me glad, it is not sufficient to describe the joy I feel. You are showing a miracle to the whole world.

I do not want to spend much time today on giving a lecture. I sometimes give lectures online, you can listen to it there. Actually, you are very fortunate because you have come to this line, you have got the association of all the devotees—there are great devotees there, and they give you their time, they show a good example for you, they teach you everything. Having got the association of the devotees, your heart has become clean and the land where you are going to place the devotional seed is already fertile.

You are an example for the whole world. You are facing so many problems, but you have not run away, you have not left Parama Karuna Nitai Gaurachandra—you are still doing service. Gurudev will be happy, and not only that—Srila Guru Maharaj, Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaj, they will all be happy with you.

And I am telling you—Krishna will give the greatest benefit to you all because despite everything you are still doing your service, you are still going for collection, you are doing the marketing, etc. I have heard that you do not even get proper, you do not get proper water and proper electricity, but still you are tolerating so many things. This is devotees' nature—humility, tolerance, and giving honour to others. You must remember how Srila Rupa Goswami and Srila Sanatan Goswami lived in Vrindavan and how much they tolerated. At that time, there was no electricity, no house, no water, nothing, they only depended on the Yamuna's water—they drank the Yamuna's water and lived under a tree. It is either very hot or very cold in Vrindavan, but they did not even have a house. You can remember their activities, their situation, and you can easily understand that you are now also living in a similar condition there in Caracas, Venezuela.

Entering Exclusive Service
'Everyone is fortunate because there are going to be initiations in London; devotees want to engage themselves in service, want to serve more and more, and I am fortunate to help them. I am only a medium—that is my hope and fortune.'

 

Gurudev! krpa-bindu diya
'Gurudev, give this servant a drop of your mercy, and make me more humble than a blade of grass.'
গুরুদেব! কৃপাবিন্দু দিয়া

If you get good association, if practise Krishna consciousness under the guidance of a great Vaishnav, a bona fide Guru, then you will get relief from this suffering.
