Haribol! Haridhwani! Ulu dhwani!
You saw the Pancha Tattva Maha Abhishek right? Did you like it? So much happiness serving the Lord. Cannot count this. This service to the Lord is the root purpose of our lives. There is no other purpose of life other than service to the Lord.
Consciousness of the Lord, service to the Lord. On all four sides there is only one consciousness, service to the Lord. You have all come and seen the Dham of the Lord, you have seen the abhishek, chanted Hari naam and therefore your lives are blessed! Haribol! Caitanyadev said, Bharate janma hoilo jaar, janma saarthaka kori, koro paro upakaar. Achieve perfection of your lives by doing service to the Lord. Name of the Lord, kirtan of the Lord, eat the prasadam of the Lord, you can do these austerities, right?! Haribol! Partaking the prasadam of the Lord is a great austerity! Ha!
In this way, serve the Lord in the best possible, way, take His prasadam, chanting His holy names, daily and do service, read and hear the Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita, this way life can be perfected.
In the Adhivaas kirtan there is a song, aanander sima nai, niraananda dure jai! This body will be there for some time and then perish. But the soul, atma, is eternal. If we do service to the Lord, we can go back to the Lord, after this lifetime. We want that all of you go back to the Lord’s abode. Haribol! And make efforts to take some five more persons along with you when you go. And if your children are Krishna conscious devotees, vaishnava, vaishnavi, this you teach them to be with love and affection. In this way, that they get happiness. In this body when they are young they have sense gratification. But when they grow old there is lot of difficulty. Now a days we see that the youth encounter a lot of problems/diseases. Therefore in this Kali yuga, there is lot of discomfort. But there is one solace – name of Krishna- if we chant the name of Krishna in kirtan, anander seema nai, niraananda dure jai!
I heard that many of you will go back home today. That is why I came to see you. You are all very dear to me! Haribol! You came to see the Pancha Tattva Abhishek and participate in the program, and I am very happy for that. Now the Shravan utsav is going on. After that there will Kirtan Mela. Then Navadvip Parikrama. Then different festivals. Then Gaura Purnima Mahatsav will be there. This time of the year is the time of festivals. As long as you can stay here, I will be very happy. If you cannot stay longer this year, you plan that next year you are able to stay longer. I hear that various Namahattas want to open dharma shalas – charity homes. 5 thousand or 10 thousand people could stay there. I hope that this will happen! Haribol!
I was very sick and because of your prayers, the Lord has blessed me to stay in this body for some more time. Haribol!
(Guru maharaj was waving both his hands ecstatically and the crowds went cheering Haribol and Ulu dhwani).
All of you danced with your hands! There were our previous acharyas, Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Prabhupad Thakur, Gaura Kishore das Babaji, Bhakti Vinod Thakur, Siddha Jagannath das Babaji, it was their wish that Gaudiya devotees, Bengali devotees and the devotees from the West would come and they would say Jai Sachinandan Jai Sachinandan and embrace each other and chant kirtan.
