Sri Nrisingha Palli, evening class
1 January 2021, part 2, translated from Bengali

 

[To a devotee] Send them a message: 9 o'clock. [To everyone] I must give a class at 9 p.m. tonight—a hundred countries join online classes. When it is 9 p.m. here, it is 9 a.m. in some other countries, and in some countries, it is 2 a.m. at night. That is why Guru Maharaj often said that the sun never sets on Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math. How is it so? When the sun sets in some place, it rises in another place. It is evening here for us, but for them the sun is only rising now. For example, it is 11-12 o'clock in the morning now in London, and at 9 p.m. our time it is 9 a.m. in America. They sit for the programme and I speak some Hari-katha with them. I will tell them about the Guru, etc. in English, and each country translates it into their own language, writing what I am saying so that others can understand it. Even all the Bengali classes that I give, they record them, then write it down, and translate into English, and then it is posted at the website. You can see everything I have spoken today, all the photographs of today's festival at the website. People from all over the world can see it—they can see how many people have come today, how many people have taken prasad, etc. The photographs are already at the website. Everyone is calling me and saying, "So many people!" That is why Gurudev said that the sun never sets on Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math... When I was in the room today, I spent most of the time on the phone. I had kept my phone in the room, and when I turned it back on at 4 p.m., I saw many miss calls, and now I will also have to give a two-hour class at 9 p.m., until 11 p.m. Devotees from all the countries want to hear from me and know how the festival went, so I must speak to them. On Sunday, there will be another class in honour of Srila Prabhupad's disappearance festival, and I anyway give a class online every Sunday.

So, this Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math is not only some group of people from West Bengal. This Mission includes members from all over the world. Therefore, I have to harmonise and speak with everyone all over the world equally—I must behave with everyone according to their nature. This is also how Srila Gurudev sowed the seeds all over the world. He went all over the world. Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaj Prabhupad went all over the world and ploughed the land, and Srila Gurudev went and planted the seeds, as a result of which we are now getting the fruits. Listening Hari-katha there, they become attracted, and we give them initiation from here. They come in front of the screen, and through the screen I can see them. Here, the screen is small, so I can only see very small pictures. I chant some beads and send them beforehand, and the devotee who is in charge of the temple or mission there give the beads to them. Sometimes, five-six people, sometimes two people take initiation. In this way, even during the lockdown, people came to take shelter of Gurudev. During some time, planes were not running, so it was difficult to send the beads, it was a big problem, but now the post office is running and we are sending the beads, and later we make a skype programme.

You know everyone—Srila Janardan Maharaj, Srila Ashram Maharaj, many other big devotees. I meet with all of them every week through zoom. Srila Gurudev has made over 130 temples all over the world, and after Gurudev left, many more centres have been opened, both in Bengal and outside it. If you have Gurudev's mercy, you must give yourself completely, to the very end, for the service of Gurudev—you must pour out all your heart, your mind, everything...
