Servitor's Chastity

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad
Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj
22 May 2018, Siliguri, part 4

 

We must leave our ego. If you do not give up your ego, you will not get the result. When your boat becomes too heavy (you have too much ego), it will sink. Ego must go away through service and practise. If you do service and ego does not go away, then you can understand that this is not service.

Ego destroys everything and removes us from service, so it must be given up. You do service for one day and start thinking, "Oh, I am the manager! I am so big!" What is not right. We are only servitors. Whatever service the Lord gives, that is good. We are not enjoyers and we are not renunciates—we are servitors and we must think like servitors. We are not managers, we are not in charge of the Math. If you do not understand this, you are in danger. We must always think about this.

"Sukhe duhkhe bhulo nako vadane Harinam koro re: in happiness or sadness, never forget it, always chant the Holy Name..."

The temple here was opened in 2007 and since then you have heard so many things here, but actually the real and proper conception and chastity have not come yet. First it is necessary to be sincere, then detachment must come, then taste. After these three, chastity comes. Very few people have chastity—those who have chastity do not know anything except Krishna consciousness, except this conception, do not understand anything except it. Gopis were like that, and such mood must come to us...

Service Attachment: 'I cannot stop his service!'
'You must understand what service mood is. Everybody must have attachment to their service. If in lieu of service you want liberation, enjoyment, and so on, you will get it, but you will forget devotion, you will forget the Lord.'

 

Gaya Gora madhur svare
'Bound in Maya's net, you work in vain. Now, while you are still conscious, chant 'Radha-Madhava'.'
গায় গোরা মধুর স্বরে

If Gurudev tells me to get out, I will get out to make him happy, but I will come back. This kind of chastity and faith are necessary—not self interest or concern for my own happiness.
