First, I am giving my full obeisance at the lotus feet of my beloved Gurudev, Om Vishnupad Jagad-Guru Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, as well as all the guru-varga, all the godbrothers and godsisters, all of my humble brothers and sisters. I am paying my full obeisance to you all from my heart.

I am very happy because I can see all the devotees' smiling faces. All devotees are happy because they accept Krishna consciousness life and practise properly, they know, "Our life is very short, but if somebody within this short life can reach their goal by chanting, dancing, and practising, why can I not do that?" So, we should try to practise and reach our goal, and everybody is doing that.

In this situation, almost everybody in almost all countries are in their rooms or houses because Krishna has sent this disease, this virus covid-19, coronavirus, all over the world. Even those who are eighty-ninety years old, have never seen this kind of situation in their life; I also have never seen anything like this. Anyhow, it has happened now, and everybody is following the government rules and regulations...

We are now in quarantine in our house (Sevak Bhavan in Dum Dum Park, Kolkata)—somebody is in government quarantine, and it is very difficult, but we are in home quarantine, it is better than to be in government quarantine. Although we are indoors, we are chanting, we are reading books, we are writing books, we are reading scriptures, and we pass our time in this way. It is necessary to have patience. Krishna is testing us to see how much patience, how much tolerance we can have.

It has been almost one month now since we have been indoors. We have not been going out so much. It is a little boring, but what can I do? We cannot do anything. This kind of disease can affect our body and make us sick, that is why we must be always careful—we must always wear a mask when we go outside, we must wash our hands from time to time and keep a little social distance. We keep social distance, but not mental distance—it must be only social distance, not heart distance. We only sit in a little distance from each other, but devotees actually always keep connection with us.

Our practising life is going on like this. We are in quarantine, but we can read, we can chant some kirtans, we can practise. That is good for us.

Fallen Souls:
Imitation, Ego, Faith
Imitation: 'After passing the brahmachari age, it is your right, you can get married. It is not bad, but it must be an honest householder life.'
Ego: 'They do some service, but I am praying to the Lord that through their service ego will not come.'
Faith: 'When you go fishing, you see fish in some place, but when you throw the net some fish will swim away. Do not worry about that.'

 

Sujanarvuda-radhita-pada-yugam
'My master, Prabhupad Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, established the religion of the age, Krishna-sankirtan, and is the chief minister of the universal assembly of leading Vaisnavas. His lotus feet are worshipped by millions of virtuous souls and fulfil the desires of those who dispel souls' fears. Eternally I offer my obeisance to my master's worshippable feet.'

Only Nityananda Prabhu and Srimati Radharani know who They will take service from.
