Conference from Vrindavan.
Dear devotees, this is the beginning of Braj mandal parikrama number 27 of Vrinda family.We feel very fortunate to again have a group of ecstatic devotees from different parts of the world, predominantly in South America.
The purpose of the parikrama is to have much personal time to share with you, since in my travels, that kind of closeness for many days are not possible and each day is less because more projects arise and want to invite me to be visited and cared for. And if I'm not going to see new projects, the devotees feel unhappy, as if their service I do not care for. In fact, the most important thing for me is the personal relationship of heart to heart.
At the same time, I have many other things in my life which also need to be addressed. For example, I just got back from a meeting with the secretary of the Acarya and Gaudiya Mission, which is the largest single mission of the original Gaudiya Math.
We decided to create an alliance to create a museum for Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada, we have this plan in the Pandavali Kunja in Vrindavan, the place we're sitting right now dictating this chat. The Calcutta Museum is next to the Bag Bazaar Gaudiya Math. This same building built by Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta was declared a national monument in India, for its historical importance and they acquired land next to the Bag Bazaar Gaudiya Math to make the museum of Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada of three floors. It is an ambitious and expensive project. There is also the great news about the recent discovery of the diary of Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur 1904-07. It was discovered accidentally in a collection of old books of Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta secretary, which was donated to Bodhayan Maharaj Srila Bhakti Bibhuda from the son of Sundar Vidya Vinod. Nobody knew that this diary existed ...
We will also make a collection of images so that anywhere in the world where there is some room available in a temple they can do a mini museum of Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta. Rather, it is part of the project to promote Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura Prabhupada as India's largest hero of divine love. Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is like the greatest ambassador of Divine Love in the world, but its full inspiration came from the greatest hero of Divine Love, His Gurudeva, who inspired many others, also pure devotees to establish missions in India of which today many have already spread to many countries.
Our life and the month of Kartika is pure mercy, though one does not understand and some people think it is more important to techno dance at a party or sunbathing on a beach to get your back tanned. We know that this stay in Vrindavan is unique in history and you do not know how many times in lifewe have this opportunity. We have a very nice plan, the union brings strength and the future of our life depends on the inspiration we get from the association of devotees. I can personally say that my heart is touched only when I see the setting sun beating on these beautiful columns of the medieval palaces built by the devotees to the glories of Krishna. And right here, where Krishna killed the Keshi demon, the representative of the arrogance and cruelty (which Krishna killed him good) and if we chant the Maha Mantra with great humility, the demon of arrogance and cruelty too will be killed.What is the comparative value of what Vrindavan offers, and that which the rest of the world offers? Hopefully understand it. Because if you understand you will not feel the slightest reluctance to devote your full attention, concentration and dedication to extract the infinite nectar of Braj Raj dust or Vrindavan dust touched by the lotus feet of Krishna. Please Do not think that this dust is common characteristics, like any other dirt of the earth, as this does not lead to devotion, there is dust all over the world ...
But how many places are there where Love is condensed liquid in the mellows of Braja manifested in every particle, every atom is on this site, full of energy, potential and energizing which only the infinite can understand and explain? You know, the powers as well as essences, intensified extracts from a particular content are managed with great care. Imagine then the place where Krishna play the flute, where the gopis danced with him ... or hobbies in the river Yamuna. The air and the deities as Gopeshwar Mahadeva or those installed by Brajanath, the great grandson of Krishna. Millions of pure devotees chanting the Holy Names and praying for love. Can you imagine the power this will have? Of course, when we clean the Rasa sthali where the Rasa dance manifested, our eyes can not see, but at the same time, seeing the earth as beautiful, the river, sun and moon, will excite anyone's heart. And you can imagine how it will be the beauty of Goloka Vrindavan, free from the influence of Kali Yuga. I wish all of you who can not be here on Kartik with us, all the best, to deepen the singing of the Maha Mantra. The Maha Mantra contains the immaculate presence and power of emancipating the soul dear to Krishna from his position as a sinner to become one with all those souls completely surrendered to the Lord.
Srila Puri Maharaj often said: "We are all equal, all have the same chance. If we chant Hare Krishna we can get the maximum benefit, we can even get back to the spirit world if we chant the holy names at the time of death." Therefore, prejudice and discrimination against others is really an insult. More than this, not only an insult, it reveals the ignorance of the world is rotting still. That is the essence of everything I've learned. By this I take my leave for this Sunday. With much affection from Sri Vrindavan.
Srila Prabhupada Ki Jay!
Your always well-wisher.
Swami B. A. Paramadvaiti.
