Guru Maharaj: Bhakti Caru Swami and the rest of ISKCON, we are all one family. So this way, many of my disciples considered him as their siksa guru. And some of his disciples are my siksa disciples. So this way, we are all one family. Some have accepted him as father, some as uncle. This way, when father is no more, we approach our uncle for advice. This way, we will try to see that all his disciples have no inconvenience. This way, the GBC and the whole ISKCON desire to hold them all together. Bhakti Caru Swami was very affectionate to all the devotees, in the same way, all his disciples are dear to all other devotees in ISKCON. Srila Prabhupada used to visit Mayapur twice a year. Then I would go and meet Srila Prabhupada in Juhu, Vrndavana, other places. But when Srila Prabhupada departed from this world, we felt ourselves helpless. But then afterwards, we started following the various instructions that Srila Prabhupada had given. In the same way, the disciples of Bhakti Caru Swami should take to hear and try to follow the instructions he had given them. This way, there will be a connection with maharaj all the time. And also there will be connection with the guru parampara. Now, Bhakti Tirtha Swami, he departed from this world some years ago. This way, many of his disciples, are serving in different ways. And other devotees are assisting them as well. But we never imagined and wished Bhakti Caru Swami would leave us so fast. Now, everyone is feeling this in their hearts and are sad. Because his association was so sweet, so nice, that now in his absence there is a vacuum in ourselves. But the way he served Srila Prabhupada, we should follow that example and serve everyone.
