Mahaprabhu Settles in Puri
'Mahaprabhu visited various places, arranged everything with Srila Rupa Goswami, Srila Sanatan Goswami; having settled everything all over India, He lastly came to Puri and stayed there. He spent His last eighteen years in Puri, performing His internal pastimes during the last four years.'

Waning Values
"Gurudev said that the storekeeper or the temple manager will be the one who always thinks about everybody. A manager is a great servant, a big guardian. You must be a real mother. But this kind of love and affection is not there any more..."

Baladev's Care
'Baladev is asraya-vigraha, the giver of power. His position is such that He is present within the temple and all service paraphernalia of the Lord. Whatever is required for the Lord's service, Nityananda Prabhu assumes the required form and serves the Lord.'

Applying Intelligence
• Is it important to study the meaning of slokas and scriptures? • We should ask our guardian, but I do not want to bother you; • How can we avoid quarrelling and fighting? • If somebody speaks bad about our guru-parampara, speaks nonsense, or does nonsense, how do we see Krishna in that?

Change of Mood
'After He took sannyas, Mahaprabhu's mood became different. Even when He took first initiation, His mood also changed. When Mahaprabhu went to Gaya and took initiation from Ishwar Puri, His whole mood and nature changed.'


—{ Sri Gurupadpadma's Worldwide Address }—

Emotion and Devotion
"Practise and practise, and when you make yourself perfect, then it will manifest in your dealings, in your behaviour, in your humility, etc. that you have become perfect—then you can easily understand what is the difference between emotion and devotion."

Appreciate Prasad-Seva
'We are alive, so we have to eat something, but what should we take? Prasad. If you make something yourself and offer it the Lord, the Lord will be happier. So, you can bring something from the market, cook it and offer it.'

On Ego and Envy
"Ego can also be good if you think, 'I am a servant of devotees.' However, envy is much worse than ego—envy is not given any place. Envy takes one to a helpless position. If you have envy or jealousy, it is easy for you to go to hell."

Preserving Purity
'In those days, Gaudiya Vaishnavs' line had very great devotees, but now there are many sahajiyas among Gaudiya devotees who corrupt this line by chanting lila-kirtans, who speak without siddhanta, who chant "Radhe Radhe" without having this right.'

Turn Your House Into Temple
"You can turn your house into a temple. Your house can be Goloka Vrindavan. What kind of house is that? It is a house where proper practising is going on every day. You can practise all the things that proper householders practise. What is the problem?"

Do Not Deflect
'Unless you praise somebody, it is not necessary to say anything about anybody. We must not say anything except for praise about them. If you say anything, you must speak about the siddhanta.'

Be Responsible for Your Spiritual Life
"We must be responsible for our service and for our spiritual life, otherwise Guru and Vaishnavs will not be happy. Being responsible for your service is one of the main qualities of a servitor. It is necessary to have proper dedication and to always accept the advice of your guardian. We should not follow our mind. If we can follow all these things, then it can give a proper solution to all our problems."

Glories of Great Souls

Asadhu-Sanga Saps Spiritual Strength
"If there is some fault in your heart, if you do some wrong and, thinking that nobody can see you doing it, you continue doing wrong, then it will slowly increase, and it will harm your spiritual life. We must always avoid bad association."

Do You Ever Think of It?
'A day without Hari-katha is a bad day, and we must always try to reduce the number of such days in our lives. The water that is necessary for the seeds to grow is sravan and kirtan. We must always practise it. It is necessary to read scriptures more, it is necessary to hear Hari-katha more.'

Dangerous Query
"Different Vaishnavs have different vision. They are all our guru-varga and we cannot make any offence to our guru-varga. We must give respect to what they do. That is our simplicity and our tradition. We do not think, 'Why did he do this?' What they have done is final for us."

Do Not Overstep Your Limit
'It is said that only three and a half devotees served Mahaprabhu: Svarup Damodar, Ray Ramananda, Sikhi Mahiti and his niece, Srimati Malini Devi. Not even Nityananda Prabhu or Rupa-Sanatana are among them, and only three persons were with Mahaprabhu in Gambhira. So, how can we dare enter there?'

Eternal Humble Prayer
"'When will You place Your lotus feet on my head? I have no quality, no qualification, I am such a tiny thing—please accept me as Your dog. Please...' Always pray and cry to the Lord in this way. You say, 'Yes, I am giving everything to you,' but in the meantime you always keep the key with you. This is not surrender."
