Jayapataka Swami: Everyone can understand a little bit about Mayapur and hope you could all take some time out to visit, if you have not already visited yet. If you have, still come again! At that time see me! But for everyone, there is a big opportunity to offer some service. Some people have transport business and they want to have a helicopter service to Mayapur. Some people maybe architects and they want to help in the Master Plan of Mayapur. It is still just a basic infrastructure. There is plenty for room to expand! Every brick you offer, every aspect that you can help, Krsna will be eternally grateful to you. He tells in the Bhagavad-gita, ye yatha mam prapadyanta, tams tataiva bhajamyaham. So He reciprocates everything you do for Him! Srila Prabhupada told us, if we take one step to Krsna, He will take ten steps to us! And I saw that Srila Prabhupada, he told us to hide our emotions because some people, some unscrupulous people would show their emotions, fake emotions just to get some sympathy. But I saw in Srila Prabhupada, a real sincere love for Krsna! Sometime when he would although try to control it, he would cry for Krsna. And actually we realize that there is so much happiness in spiritual life. Srila Rupa Goswami said that the two syllables – Krs and Na, They have unlimited happiness! And most people think that religion means we have to give up things, so I don’t want religion. But actually it means accepting Krsna, put Krsna in the center! Just like if you have a big house, three sons and the father, they put Radha Govinda in the center! So we just want to add Krsna and then you can get unlimited spiritual happiness. Our bodies are made of five gross elements and three subtle elements. So the body can give us some limited happiness but the body also gives us suffering. The same senses they give us happiness, also give us suffering. Like now we have air conditioning in the house, and if you go out in the daytime, you get plenty of heat! Ha! Ha! The same senses that give you happiness inside, gives you suffering outside! So we want people to lead a peaceful, comfortable life and have the bliss of serving Krsna.
