I see that wherever I go the audience listens to me very carefully. I don’t speak my own views; I only try to say what I have realized from Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, Śrīla Prabhupāda, my Gurudeva, and Svāmījī, and especially what I have realized from Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura, Rūpa Gosvāmī, Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī, and Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī. I try to realize their words and teachings, then I tell their words and teachings to someone. I speak when I am satisfied. And that is why Svāmījī is everywhere. He is in every atom. He is dragging me here and there and telling me to speak. He is also inspiring you all. He says, “You should go and help Nārāyaṇa dāsa”—not Mahārāja. And everyone is helping me.
