Purify Yourself

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
14 October 2019, Kolkata, part 3

 

I was reading yesterday that many different gurus have so many disciples—thousands of thousands of disciples, but among all those disciples not everybody is a guru. There are so many disciples, so many gurus in this world. We must be very careful about this.

We must practise very nicely, we must continue our practising life carefully. When you stay with Gurudev, you should not only stay with your body and mind—you must stay with Gurudev with your heart and soul. We must give proper respect to Gurudev. This is the main thing for us. If we do not give respect to our Guru from our heart, it means we have a big problem. We must give proper respect to the Guru. If we do not give proper respect to the Guru, then what is the value of our devotion? What for have we joined devotional activities? What for have we joined Krishna consciousness life then? The main thing is proper respect. Also, it is necessary to have chastity to your Gurudev. Chastity is the main thing too.

Now is niyom-seva month, kartik-vrata month. We can use this time to try to teach ourselves. We should not teach others—we must teach ourselves. This is the main thing. First we must purify ourselves. We should not try to purify others—first we must purify ourselves through sravanam and kirtanam (hearing and chanting, or practising). We have not come here for wealth, money, gold, property, etc.

Jay Srila Guru Maharaj ki jay

One-Way Ticket to the World of Faith

Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'Sri Dayita Das' nondifferent divine form, the living manifestation of Srila Svarup Damodar, Sri Rupa, and Sri Raghunath, whose lotus feet are to be served eternally, is the best of Gurus, Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj. He is the embodiment of perfect siddhanta and the ultimate refuge for the sadhus who follow Sri Rupa.'

We must accept what is in favour of devotion and reject what is not in favour of devotion.
