In a Couple of Years he Preached Everywhere

Svāmījī especially preached by his books. He translated Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Śrīmad Bhagavad-gītā, and Caitanya-caritāmṛta. He also wrote books like, “Easy Journey to Other Planets.” He has translated the books of the Gosvāmīs also. In a couple of years he preached everywhere. He distributed his books all over the world. At that time, young devotees would go to airports, universities, and hospitals. They would go everywhere. Everyone was so inspired at that time. It is my desire that my disciples also, regardless of being male or female, preach like this. I am happy that the mission of Caitanya Mahāprabhu, the mission of Rūpa Gosvāmī, is proceeding quickly.

Mana-Sarovara

I brought you here to touch this place, and to touch the feet of these trees. These trees are exalted devotees. They previously saw the Lord's pastimes as trees, and now they are performing austerities in this form. One day they will have gopi forms, and at that time they will be able to enter rasa-lila and other such pastimes. This scenery is so beautiful. If anyone has a camera he should take a picture of it...

Sat-sanga – Desirable Association

...In the same way that a touchstone turns anything it touches into gold, the sadhaka becomes purified by the association of high-class Vaisnavas. But we also must be cautious, if we do not know how to approach a maha-bhagavata and behave in his association, then we will not receive his blessings and mercy. Therefore Mahaprabhu taught us this third verse, instructing us to become humble, tolerant, and respectful...

The Glory of Sri Guru

Śrī Guru uses everything for the service of Śrī Hari. He doesn’t cheat those who come to him, he only teaches the glories of Hari. He not only gives a chance for the service of Kṛṣṇa, He gives attachment for God and His loving service. If you come near Guru and Vaisnavas, your previous nature automatically changes...

This Will Help Us

...We shouldn’t engage ourselves in making unnecessary rules and regulation, in management, and in other extraneous efforts. A division should not be made among devotees. We should always see if our love and affection for Śrī Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa has advanced or not. If it is the same, then we should realize that we are still in the same stage we were in, twenty years back. Our activities are not helpful...

Engage in Bhajan at the Earliest – 13 June 1996

Just by His desire, He lifted Giriraja-Govardhana on His little finger. Krsna expanded into millions of forms and danced with millions of gopis. At the same time, He can expand into innumerable forms. Rama, Nrsimha, Vamana, and other forms are His expansions. Bha can also mean He who nourishes this creation and all its residents. Ga means, He manages the entire creation. How does He manage the creation? In the ocean, the waves never stop appearing. They appear at the correct time. The sun and moon appear at the correct time. The day and night appear one after another just as the different seasons also appear one after another. Who controls all this? Some mothers give birth to a son while some mothers give birth to a daughter; who controls this? Who gives us the fruits of our karma? He does. Therefore, “Ga,” means He who manages the entire creation. And, “Va,” means He, who resides in the hearts of all beings and in who all beings reside. Hence, we can never be Bhagavan or Brahma. All the life forms are not in us and neither are we present in all life forms. We don’t have all the qualities like Bhagavan. We are foolish; we think of something, but do something else. Our eyes cannot see themselves. They cannot see what is behind us. It is not certain if we will live to see tomorrow. Therefore, we are ignorant; Bhagavan is the embodiment of knowledge—He is satyam-jnanam-anantam-brahma. Hence, that personality in whom these qualities are found is Bhagavan. That person who has bhakti for Bhagavan will pray, “Hey Bhagavan, I am Yours!” If someone is of this mentality and worships Bhagavan, then Bhagavan listens to His prayers. If your husband is sitting far away from you and if he doesn’t have a phone, then he will not be able to listen to your calls. He will not come. Even if he listens to your cries, what can he do? If you are dying, can your husband save you? Neither can your brother or a doctor save you. No one can save you. But, Krsna is in your heart; there is no such thing in which Krsna is not present. He is present in every atom of this creation. He is present in all animals. There is no such thing, conscious or unconscious, in which He is not present. This Prabhu should be worshiped. Worshiping Krsna is not difficult. It is very easy. It is not difficult to please your mother. Why? If you go and sit on her lap and say, “O mother,” then your mother will become pleased. So, to please Krsna is not a difficult task. Although we cannot realize Krsna by our body, senses, mind, intelligence, and consciousness; even so, He reciprocates with our loving devotion. So, engage in ahaituki bhakti to Him. What is ahaituki bhakti? It is causeless bhakti. Offering flowers to Him, don’t say, “Prabhu, I have offered You flowers and I pray that You can arrange for a building that has 150 floors. My business should improve. May my children pass their exams.” Don’t desire for anything. All these desires will deceive you. Bhagavan will give you something that you cannot imagine. Therefore, engage in His causeless devotion. Don’t engage yourself in giving and receiving—don’t become a businessman with the Lord.
