I am very happy to be here in the Radha Krishna temple. I will just speak for a few minutes. We have here Nitai Gaur, Radha Krishna and Jagannath Baladev and Subhadra. Nitai Gaur appeared 500 years ago. Krishna thought I had such blissful time in My Vrndavan pastimes but many people did not get a taste. So I will appear again as My devotee. Parama karuna bahu dui jana Nitai Gaura Chandra Saba avataar saara shiromani kevala ananda kandha. There are so many avatars. Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita sambhavami yuge yuge. He comes in every yuga. But there is no avatar so merciful as Nitai Gaur. Although He did not reveal Himself as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He came and travelled all over India for six months. He visited every house, the householder bathed His feet and they gave Him bhoga. And Lord Caitanya sat down and talked with all the residents of the house and others in the village. Which avatar gives so much mercy? Going to every house, speaking with the householders. There was Vasudev Datta, a leper, he was so detached. He was taking the ants and insects, picking them up and putting them on his sores, poochi poochi. Ha! Lord Caitanya embraced him and he was cured of his leprosy. So Vasudev Datta told Him, You cured me! I will become proud! Lord Caitanya told him you just chant Hare Krishna and that will protect you. So Krishna came to Chennai and married the princess. But Lord Caitanya was in the mood of Radharani. So He did not do anything with ladies. So we are very fortunate that Lord Caitanya spent so much time in Tamil Nadu. He spent the four months of the rainy season in Srirangam. He was chanting all the time. There is one village here, they are still chanting Hare Krishna and Sri Krishna Caitanya. So by the mercy of Nitai Gaur we are getting the service of Radha and Krishna. And Lord Jagannath is feeling separation from Vrndavan. In Brihad Bhagavatamrita, it mentions that Krishna was crying for His devotees in Vrndavan. So that is the form of Lord Jagannath Baladev and Subhadra. So please chant in your house. We are not saying to change your way of life; we are just saying add seva to Krishna. Lord Caitanya’s instruction was bolo Krishna bhajo Krishna koro Krishna shiksha.
Thank you very much. Hare Krishna!
