3 January 2019 (South Indian preaching tour)
Primary Realisation
"What is the difference between those previous birds' and beasts' bodies and this human body? Krishna has sent us to a human body and He is examining us, He wants to see what we do after that. Some may see no difference..."

Our Mission
"What message have I come to give you? I want to try to give you the message of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur, of our Gurudev and our Guru Maharaj. I want to give you the Hidden Treasure of the Sweet Absolute."
Download the audio (2 Mb, 6 min)

Enjoyer, Controller, Provider
"Everything in this world exists for the Lord's enjoyment. Because of our ego we think these things are my things. Nothing in this world is yours. If you think that everything belongs to you and enjoy with everything, it means that you are attacked by Maya Devi."
Download the audio (1.8 Mb, 5 min)

Chalking Out the Path
"Neither heaven no hell is our permanent, proper place. We come from the Lord and we should go back home—back to home, back to Godhead. Through the service to the Lord, to the Guru and Vaishnavs, you can go to your real place, which is Goloka."
Download the audio (0.9 Mb, 3 min)

Help Yourself and Help Others
"You have twenty-four hours a day, but these twenty-four hours are not for you. When you join Krishna's family, you can engage yourself twenty-four hours a day for the Guru. Those who have initiation should not only chant themselves, but they should also preach."
Download the audio (0.8 Mb, 2 min)

Making Offering: Have Heart, Follow Rules
"Service means you must arrange everything, then it will be proper service. You may have a good heart, but it is necessary to know some rules and regulations. When you make an aparadh you have to suffer for it."
Download the audio (0.9 Mb, 3 min)

Primary Qualities of Devotee
"If you go door to door but you do not practise properly, householder people will not give even one rupee to you. You must practise properly, behave properly—you must become a devotee. 'Devotee' means following Mahaprabhu's teaching. We come to Krishna consciousness to please Gurudev—not to please ourselves."
Download the audio (1.1 Mb, 3 min)

Purpose of Surrender
"You think, 'I am suffering from so many problems, so I must surrender to the Lord'—this is not devotion. You should surrender with heart and soul, with the devotion. You must surrender to the Lord to love the Lord."
Download the audio (1.1 Mb, 4 min | 3 January 2019)

Always Chant the Holy Name
"Mind is always naughty, it always wants something. When your mind is disturbing you, loudly chant the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, then your mind will concentrate on the Lord."
Download the audio (1.4 Mb, 4 min)

Learn and Practise
"How will you serve the Lord? Come to the dearmost servitor of your Guru and surrender to that kind of Vaishnav—he can give you proper guidance. Read the books, pray to the Lord, and in that way you can remember the Lord. The best practice is sravan and kirtan."

4 January 2019 (South Indian preaching tour)
At Mangalagiri (1)
"After Mahaprabhu took darshan of Nrisinghadev, He sat here at this place—you can see here the footprints of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur established this place. We are very fortunate to have come here."
Download the audio (1 Mb, 3 min)

At Mangalagiri (2)
"We come to preach Krishna consciousness in South India because Gurudev wanted this preaching in South India. We have visited some places here today, but actually we have no eyes. How can I see Lord Nrisingha, Pana Nrisingha or Laksmi Nrisingha?"
Download the audio (3.1 Mb, 9 min | Hari-katha + Kirtan)

 

4 January 2019 (Evening class in Vijayawada, South India)
Appreciating Worship of Nrisinghadev
"Actually, you are very fortunate souls because you live near Laksmi Nrisingha, Pana Nrisingha temples. You should understand how much devotion Prahlad Maharaj has, and what his devotion, his desire and mood of devotion are like."
Download the audio (2.2 Mb, 6 min)

Proper Care
"If we do not practise properly, we will forget our service, we will forget our practising life. We have to be careful—Maya Devi always sits near us and she can attack us at any time; she can take us away from the service of Krishna and use for her own service."
Download the audio (1 Mb, 3 min)

Learning to Surrender
"Your mind always thinks, 'Shall I jump or not? Shall I jump or not?' but you must throw your mind into Krishna consciousness life, then you can understand everything. Mind is always naughty, but you have intelligence, sumedha."
Download the audio (1.5 Mb, 5 min)

Triumph of Life
"We are swimming in an ocean of illusory environment and we do not understand which way we must go, but we have finally got this human body; we must understand what is our duty in this human body—only sleeping, eating and enjoying like cats and dogs?"
Download the audio (1.7 Mb, 5 min)

Crooked Service (1)
"We all—all over the world—are sons and daughters of the Lord, and we always serve or want to serve the Lord, but do we want to serve to fulfil our own desire or to fulfil Krishna's desire? You can understand this from the example of family life also..."
Download the audio (1.3 Mb, 4 min)

Crooked Service (2)
"'What is devotion? What do you want—do you want to please yourself? Is this devotion?' You can see what is called vaishnavata (qualities of a Vaishnav) and how Vaishnavism is practised. We want to learn from great Vaishnavs."
Download the audio (2 Mb, 6 min)

Who Is a Real Disciple?
"Srila Prabhupad teaches us that we do not discriminate who is a grihastha, who is a brahmachari, and who is a sannyasi. Those who are dearest to Gurudev, those who can serve Gurudev properly, who can follow his instruction properly, they are the real devotees."
Download the audio (0.7 Mb, 2 min)

Flunkies of Flesh
"...Still, you are not running under the guidance of Guru and Vaishnavs—you are running under the guidance of your body. You are attached to your family life, but that kind of attachment should come to Lord Krishna, Gauranga Mahaprabhu, and Gurudev. Search for Sri Krishna Reality the Beautiful! Search where you can get real devotion!"
Download the audio (2 Mb, 6 min)

A Heartfelt Appeal
"O Vaishnav Thakur! I surrender to you, only you can control my mind, and through your association my mind can get some service to you. When I see everything in this world, I feel very afraid. Please, Prabhu, take me. I want to go with you! Please take me from the illusory environment and engage me in your service!"
Download the audio (2.5 Mb, 7 min)

Nityananda Prabhu's Campaign
"You have no attachment to Nityananda Prabhu, to Gurudev! You are a sinner, you only come and go, come and go, how will you ever get relief? You do not understand how much you are suffering..."

7 January 2019 (Evening class in Vijayawada, South India)
Jail of Maya
"There are some few persons in this world who are free from the jail of maya—persons who have got liberation. Such liberated souls worship Krishna, and they think, 'This is not our house. We live at a temporary address.' How many percent of us think like this?"
Download the audio (2.1 Mb, 6 min)

Benefactors
"You have come to Krishna consciousness, and you must not only keep the wealth you have got from your Guru for yourself—you must also distribute it. Sometimes, when you come to distribute these things, people will not want to listen to you, they will tell you bad nonsense things, but that is also good for you."
Download the audio (3.1 Mb, 9 min)

Your Heart Is the Commodity
"Krishna and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu want devotees' hearts. They do not care who has property, who has money in this world. You can see that you live in a simple house, but you have a heart to serve devotees, to serve Vaishnav."
Download the audio (1.4 Mb, 4 min)

The Price of Mercy
"...She got mercy of Mahaprabhu through service—she has no education, no money, she did not even know how to read, but she got the mercy of Mahaprabhu. Mukunda also got mercy of Mahaprabhu through his faith. It is necessary to have the strongest faith."
Download the audio (1.4 Mb, 4 min)

Acme of Service
"Mahaprabhu experienced the same feelings that Radharani felt when Krishna left Vrindavan. Such separation should come to you also through your service. Following the guidance of a bona fide guru, through the service to Vaishnavs, you can get liberation, and through that you can go to your real home."

Follow Mahaprabhu's Conception
"Sadhus, Gurus, and Vaishnavs are very kind—they come to you house because you suffer birth after birth. There are so many bad material elements in your heart, but through the association that sadhus give you you can clean the mirror of your heart."

8 January 2019 (Last class in Vijayawada, South India)

Maintain Your Practice

Download the audio (1.1 Mb, 3 min)

A Life Worth Living
"This life is so temporary, and not only that—so much danger, so many problems come in this life. We do so many things, we go through so many austerities, but what do we do it for? The only way out for us is to take shelter of the Holy Name and continue with our job."

Our Great Fortune

On Vaishnav Aparadh
"There are four types of Vaishnav-aparadh, thirty-two types of seva-aparadh, ten dhama-aparadhas, and ten Nama-aparadhas. Read what these offences are and try to avoid them. Sometimes, although we have read about these offences, we may consciously or unconsciously make some offence, that is why we should always ask for forgiveness."

14 February 2019 (Sri Ekachakra Dham)

Place of Pivotal Pastimes
"Srila Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj was empowered to protect and distribute Sri Rupa-Raghunath line. He came here in Sri Ekachakra Dham before starting to take disciples, and every year he would send some small donation for the service of Nityananda Prabhu."

First Memories of Sri Ekachakra Dham
"I had heard Ekachakra's name before and wanted to come here many times, but when I told about it to Gurudev, he said, 'What will you go there for?' Later, in 2004, Gurudev finally allowed it—he said, 'You can go with devotees and do some parikrama there.'"

His Service Is Essential

Servant or Merchant?
"Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur said that instead of serving Gurudev, Nityananda Prabhu, Krishna, we make Them serve us—we must not make Nityananda Prabhu, Gurudev our servants. Do not make Guru and Krishna your servant, a bribe-taker."

Serve Nitai without Deceit

Bhakti Siddhanta Vani
"'How can we get qualities of a Vaishnav?' Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur told that many people do not want to be servants of Vaishnavs, but they want to be Vaishnavs—he said it is impossible to become a Vaishnav without service to a Vaishnav's servant."

Eternal Rememberance
"When you remember devotees' pastimes, your heart becomes clean in this way—and this must be eternal. Sincerity is necessary. The main thing is 'kirtana prabhave smarana haibe'—you can remember the Lord's and the Lord's devotees' pastime through kirtan."

Engage Yourself In Service

Importance of Service Mood
"'I will serve; service is our life'—until and unless this desire, this mood comes to us, Krishna-katha will not enter our ears. At any time—whether I am thinking, sleeping, or eating, I always think, 'What is the next service? What is the next service?'"

Power of Purity

Service with Heart
"We should realise, we should understand the places Gaura visited, the pastimes that are going on in each of those places and we should keep everything in our heart. Service should be coming from the heart. Remove bad elements from your heart and give some space for your worshippable Deity."

The Right to Serve
"Who can give the right to serve to Srimati Radharani, or Krishna also? Krishna is the property of Srimati Radharani and Srimati Radharani is non-different from Gurudev. So, if we properly surrender to the Guru, Gurudev can give us the permission, Gurudev can give us the right to serve the Lord."

If you eat outside food, listen to outside kirtans, this is hodge-podge devotion (panchmisali bhakti)!

Sri Guru: More than Lord

Qualification of Disciple and Guru
"In transcendental life, it does not matter who is whose disciple, who is senior, who is junior. These things matter in material life.

In Krishna consciousness, seniority depends on devotion, on reality, chastity."

Sri Govardhan Puja (2): Seva-Adhikar

Darshan of Transcendental Abode
"Actually, we do not have the eyes to have a darshan of a holy place. If we can clean our hearts through kirtan, if we can clean our character and mind through the service to the Guru, Vaishnavs, and the Lord, then we can truly do dham parikrama."

Eternal Stumbling Block
"Mathura or Vrindavan is not a place for doing business or enjoyment. This is a place of service. If you want to stay here to serve, if you have service mood, then you have the right to stay here. We must not come to Vrindavan to always think about ourselves."

Neither Judge, Nor Imitate
"We cannot see anything, that is why we must always take shelter of a bona fide Guru. That is why it is very difficult to stay in Vrindavan. If you try to practise such raga-marga, you will become a sahajiya."

Symptoms of Disciple
"Only exclusive and dear servitors can have the right for Gurudev's wealth and property. Gurudev's wealth and property is not some temple, a great building, etc.—Gurudev's property is Krishna-prema, his heart, his love. We must become real disciples."

Sri Krishna Janmastami:
Celebrate and Realise
What we are making the Janmastami festival for? To show ourselves and our big ego? No, we are making this festival to give much nourishment to the devotees through Hari-katha, through Krishna-katha, by giving good things to them..

      

Radharani is dearmost to Krishna and because Gurudev is nondifferent from Her
Gurudev is also dearmost to Krishna. This is our conception.
