Malini Devi and Vishvarup

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj,
Speaking to devotees in London
29 July 2012, part 7

 

Malini... The name of Srivas Pandit's wife is Malini Devi. You know, one time Malini chastised Srivas Pandit.

Once, Vishvarup Prabhu, Nimai's elder brother, came to their house. He was a young boy at that time, about thirteen-fourteen years old. He came to ask Srivas Pandit for help. He asked him, "Prabhu, I want some book, I have come to ask if you can give it to me." At that time, there were many Muslim people in that area, and they burnt books and scriptures. Srivas Pandit answered, "You know there is so much problem here because of the Muslim people, we have already sent the book you are asking for to Tripura (Agartala, a Hindu area)."

At that time, Malini came to Vishvarup and gave him much affection. Looking at Vishvarup, Srivas Pandit said to Malini (his wife), "Oh, Vishvarup has come, but I cannot help him. I wish I could help him..." Suddenly, Malini said, "How can you help him?? You are always busy with kirtan and always only go to Advaita Prabhu's class—you cannot even take care of your family, how can you help anybody else?! You are not a family man!" In front of Vishvarup, she chastised Srivas Pandit in this way, and Vishvarup got shy to hear it. Srivas Pandit said, "Vishvarup, have you seen it? What did I say to her and what is she saying to me?! Now you know what marriage life is like! It is a big problem! Do not ever get married!"

At that time Vishvarup was actually going to get married—his parents, Sachi Mata and Jagannath Misra had already seen a girl for him, etc. But Vishvarup always, every day remembered what Srivas Pandit had told, and after a few days he suddenly ran away from his house and took sannyas. Such mood came to him. I read about this in some good book... So, now seeing Malini here (in London) I remembered their talk about life.

'Today sleep a little less, tomorrow sleep a little less, and you will be able to control it. Everything will be controlled—if you try, you can do it.'

 

Krsna haite chatur-mukha
'The best disciples of the great Madhavendra Puri were Isvar Puri, Lord Nityananda, and Lord Sri Advaita. Jagad-guru Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu blessed Isvar Puri (by accepting Isvar Puri as His Guru.)'
কৃষ্ণ হৈতে চতুর্ম্মুখ

All paraphernalia, even the temple itself, is Nityananda Prabhu, the Lord Himself.
