"I bow my head in eternal obeisance to my Gurudev, the best of acharyas, Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj. He is the ever vigilant, stalwart guardian of the current of pure devotion whose highest form flows from our most worshippable Sri Rupanuga Guru-varga in their exclusive dedication to Mahabhav, Srimati Radharani."

tirtha-phala sadhu-sanga,sadhu-sange antaranga,
sri-krsna-bhajana manohara
yatha sadhu, tatha tirtha,sthira kari’ nija-chitta,
sadhu-sanga kara nirantara
The result of visiting a place of pilgrimage is sadhu-sanga (pure devotees’ association) and being drawn to the exclusive service of Sri Krishna. A place of pilgrimage is where a sadhu (pure devotee) is. Always keep the association of pure devotees and firmly fix your mind by such association.

vaisnavera pada-dhulitahe mora snana-keli
tarpana mora vaisnavera nama
vaisnavera uchchhistatahe mora mano-nistha
vaisnavera namete ullasa
"The feet dust of the Vaishnavs is where I sport and take bath, Vaishnavs' name is the water oblation. My mind is intently fixed upon the remnants of Vaishnavs, and I am elated at the name of Vaishnavs."

gangara-parasa ha-ile paschate pavana
darsane pavitra kara—ei tomara guna

"If the Ganges touches someone, they are purified some time later; but one becomes purified just by seeing you, O Vaishnava Thakur. Such is your power."


(At the house of Sripad Arjuna Krishna Prabhu)

"If those who always carry Gadadhar, the Supreme Lord, in their heart cannot purify the places of pilgrimage, then who can? They are places of pilgrimage personified, and they have no need to go on pilgrimage. Then why do they go to places of pilgrimage? The really sinful people contaminate the places of pilgrimage. Everyone and everything has a particular capacity. We also have a particular capacity, that is, the burden of our sin is so great that even a place of pilgrimage cannot digest it. This is how a place of pilgrimage automatically becomes contaminated. At that time the great personalities who carry the Supreme Lord in their heart appear there."
(Srila B.S. Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj, Divine Guidance)

Every time we make a festival we call devotees because we want to present Gurudev's
conception—the jiva souls are suffering, and it is our duty to give them some relief.
