New Year Message: Service Is Our Life

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
29 December 2019


Dear all the devotees,

Please accept my humble obeisance.

This past year we have all been preaching for Gurudev as much as possible. We are trying our best, and all the devotees are also helping me with their service all over the world—they are helping me heart and soul in many ways They follow Gurudev's instruction in service mood, and I am very happy with everybody's service mood.

Problems can come at any moment, but we are ready to solve them. Problems will always come, in any life—be it material life or spiritual life; but we must remember that we have come to this line of Krishna consciousness, we have got a bona fide Guru, we have come to Srila Rupa Goswami's line, Srila Sanatan Goswami's line, we have got our beloved Gurudev Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj—he is always behind us, he always helps us. We suffer from so many problems, but at the same time we do not think that we have any problem—we get happiness from service, this is your life.

Now next year is coming. You should all try to be happier and happier in your Krishna consciousness life. Our happiness lies there. Wherever you stay, you must maintain your spiritual life. Whatever problem comes, we will not go to any other line, we will not leave our line—we will follow that line which Gurudev shows us. That is our intention, that is our determination, and that is our promise. We are ready to face any kind of situation that can come—whatever situation comes, let it come, we are always ready for it, it is not a problem.

I always ask devotees for their blessing. This year we have also lost some devotees, our dear friends—we no longer have them with us, but everybody has to leave this world one day, it is a fact, it is the reality. We have got human body and we must utilise it for the service to our beloved Gurudev and his mission.

I send everybody all the best wishes. May everybody happily enjoy their next year, 2020. And I always invite you all to please come at Gaura Purnima to do Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama. We invite you all to join us.

Jay Srila Gurudev
Jay Srila Guru Maharaj ki jay
Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj ki jay

Kirtaniyah sada harih. [May the Holy Name be chanted always, at every moment.]

Hari bol.

'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.'


'He wears a peacock feather crown and yellow garments. He holds the flute and lifts the Govardhan Hill!'

If you do not take prasadam, you will not be able to control the prapancha—without prasad-seva you cannot control your senses.
