Try to fulfill the desire of guru. He is very near and dear to Kṛṣṇa and Rādhikā. I think it would be better that you should take so many things which we are giving in your pockets. Don’t return empty handed. That pocket is your heart so you should try to take, and try to be a devotee like this. If anyone is abusing us, or our guru’s services, we should not tolerate. Those who are helping we should try to respect. Don’t want their respect. Try to know the heart of our Guru-paramparā, Caitanya Mahāprabhu, our Gurudeva, and thus try to develop your Kṛṣṇa consciousness more and more, so that worldly lust should go away, and all kinds of unwanted things, and you should be a pure devotee. I think if you are hearing in Vaiṣṇava association, vairāgya is bound to come, detachment is bound to come.
We have not come, our mission, for bricks and stones. We should try to develop our Kṛṣṇa consciousness in the guidance of our Guru-varga, our Gurudeva, and this you can take in your pocket.
