Jayapatākā Swami: How many are from Vadodara? Vadodara is in Gujarat. Vadodara, I have many disciples from Vadodara. They are in the BhaktiVṛkṣa. I feel very grateful for all that Śrīla Prabhupāda did for me and so to repay him I try to preach. And in 2008 I had a stroke. And the right side of my body is not paralyzed fully but paresis, partially paralyzed and the left side of my face. But the Teachings of Lord Caitanya are very blissful. It says that normal people if they eat grains and milk, you get strong, but for devotees even if you have one drop of nectar then you feel so much energy. Lord Caitanya gives this nectar. We hope that your visit to Māyāpur was very nice. This is known as Audārya-Dhāma, the Merciful Dhāma. Vṛndāvana is Mādhurya-Dhāma, very sweet. Jagannātha Purī and Dvārakā are Aiśvarya-Dhāmas, very opulent. This is the place to have mercy and Caitanya Mahāprabhu is Kṛṣṇa but He is in the mood of devotee, Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. So that is why it is the special mercy we get and we want to serve Lord Caitanya and Śrīla Prabhupāda. Hare Kṛṣṇa!
