Guru maharaj: We offer ourselves for service and whether they give us service or not, that depends on the guru and spiritual authorities. At one time we heard that Srila Prabhupada was criticizing Vrndavan, so we were ready to help in Vrndavana. And Srila Prabhupada said, oil your own … first, he told us we should concentrate on our own management first and then think about other places. So just like Srila Prabhupada, he would criticize us in Mayapur, he would criticize in Vrndavana, that was his mercy to teach us what we should try to perfect in. So if you have enthusiastic service desire, that is all right. Those who give are giving you service, if you don’t want one service, they may give you another or they want you to continue and you do it.
