HOW IMPORTANT IS MANASI-SEVA?

Sometimes, in front of the Jagannātha Temple, Mahāprabhu’s body extended out 10 meters and all His joints slackened and became dislodged, or all His limbs went inside like a turtle and the cows came and licked Him. Mahāprabhu showed His ecstasies of mānasī-sevā. Śrīman Mahāprabhu taught all these things, but people have no time for what is the most important.

Srila Gurudeva

Devotees must take responsibility for service. My Gurudeva sent me to Mathura and I accepted all the responsibilities of the Matha – going house to house and preaching, doing kirtana, cooking, writing books, publishing Bhagavat Patrika (monthly magazine). You have all come here from different countries for guru-seva...
