Guru Maharaj: If you are not able to realize the ecstasy in the pastimes of the Lord, by rendering service to the Lord, you should certainly be crying. You should be crying that you do not realize this bliss. And instead you are being cheated by māyā, that she is giving you material enjoyment, which is insignificant. So in the pastimes of Lord Caitanya, we see that Lord Caitanya’s decision to take sannyāsa, hits the devotees like a lightning bolt or a thunderbolt, and they have so much love for Lord Caitanya and the thought of being separated from Him is so lamentable, so distressing, but that itself is the ecstasy, because that is completely meditating on Kṛṣṇa. But if one is not able to understand this, then they should certainly be crying, that they are not able to have this appreciation for Kṛṣṇa! What else can I say? You are asking a question what should one do in this situation? You should be crying. You should be praying to Kṛṣṇa, praying to Gaurāṅga, praying to Nityānanda, praying to Advaita, praying to everyone, praying to Gadādhara, praying to Śrīvāsa .When will I have the real appreciation for Kṛṣṇa Prema? When will I be absorbed in the bliss of the transcendental pastimes. Haribol!
