Jayapataka Swami: Servant of the servant, etc. So now we are like I don’t exactly, we are 33rd from the disciplic succession from Lord Brahma, and my disciples would be 34th. So what is hard to understand – servant, of the servant, of the servant of the servant?  We cannot put 34 servants between you and Lord Krsna. Gopi bartu, the husband of the gopīs, pada kamala yor the lotus feet of Lord Krsna, servant of the servant and on it goes. So how you find it difficult to follow? Do you think you are the servant of Krsna directly? Even we see that Laksmana when He wanted to go with Lord Rama. He grabbed the lotus feet Lord Rama and prayed to Sita, please let Me go with Lord Rama.  Srila Prabhupada said that if you want to go to Krsna, you should pray to Radharani. So that is why we worship Lord Caitanya, by His mercy we get the mercy of Radharani. We worship Lord Nitai, because by His mercy we get the mercy of Lord Caitanya.  So like that Srila Prabhupada said we should observe Ekadasi with no grains, no cereals, no pulses. But we see that the Puranas say that we should observe full fast, no water, don’t sleep at night. Srila Prabhupada said, no you can just eat no grain, no pulse, and preach. So Srila Prabhupada is very merciful. And he gave us a system which is easier to follow. By following the guru, then it is perfect. So, if you serve your guru, then We should be the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant, of the servant of Krsna!
