bhakter nirmala-nirjharasya nibhrtam samraksakam sadaram
vande sri-gurudevam anata-sira acharya-varyam nijam
"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."
vaisnavera pada-dhuli tahe mora snana-keli
tarpana mora vaisnavera nama
vaisnavera uchchhista tahe 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."
His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj mentioned: "I am
going to Nrisingha Palli, Mayapur, soon because I must supply temples in
Mayapur with some rice, potato, dal, oil. In this pandemic situation, the
condition at all temples is not so good, that is why I am giving something to
them—I can give a little to each temple. I collected rice and potato earlier
this year, and we can distribute it. When we make festivals, we invite all
sadhus, and at that time we use much bhoga, but this year past few months we
have not been able to make festivals, so at least we can give something to
each temple, then everybody will be happy. This is Vaishnav seva."
On the order of His Divine Grace, Sripad Niriha Maharaj, accompanied by
a few other devotees, fulfils this great and rare service—entering each
Gaudiya Temple, His Holiness and devotees bow down to the residents of the
temples and humbly offer bhoga for their temples on behalf of Sri Chaitanya
Saraswat Math and Sri Gurupadpadma. Many are taken aback, many are touched,
but everyone happily offers their prayers and blessings to the devotees and
become overwhelmed by the unexpected token of familial, brotherly affection
of Sri Gurupadpadma Srila B.N. Acharya Maharaj.
Devotees delivered sacks of rice and potato, packets of oil and soya chunks, as well as a bag of dal to each temple.
