Jayapataka Swami: Why do you think that your love or affection for the Guru or Krsna is simply sentimental. Sentimental means that you don’t put into practice. If that is the case, then it is sentimental “I love you” but you don’t do anything to show it. It is cheap talk! That is sentimental. But if you are serving Krsna, if you are serving guru, if you really appreciate what the guru has done for you, then why do you consider it as merely sentimental? Mere sentiment means that you say something, but you don’t do anything. So you are chanting Hare Krsna every day, you are trying to develop the Mayapur Institute, so why is this sentimental. You are giving donations to help in so many ways. So that is the proof that it is not sentimental, it is REAL! Haribol! Haribol! Haribol!
