    Also, Sri Guru and Gauranga’s merciful lila will never never end, the electricity will never stop.

    Srila Gurudeva has said many times, “Sadhu, Guru and Vaisnavas are always present and Mahaprabhu’s Lila is always manifested, if you have the eyes to see it”. That’s the real BIGGER picture!

    Guru Parampara
    910317 Conversation:

    Devotee: One thing I was wondering, in our parampara, guru parampara, then between Narottam Das Thakur and Viswanath Chakravarti Thakur, then there is a gap of four generations and in some places you see the names of these äcäryas?

    Gour Govinda Swami: You see, I was, that question this time, Tamal Krishna put me. This Yasomati Nandan Das told him that only those who are mahä-bhägavatas they are placed in parampara, other one not in the line, so Tamal Krishna asked me that question: Is it truth or not?

    Although that’s NOT a fact, all are in the line, the example is like this electric light post. Electric light posts are there connected with them, all are connected but in between some post with prominent light, more blazing light, they are prominent but in between some smaller light some less blazing light, they are in the line, but they are not prominent.

    So those who are prominent, they are in the line, they are in the parampara; this is paramapara. Oh yes. this is very good example. yes this is good example.

    Devotee: It is not that some are greater or lesser? It is not that some devotees are greater or some lesser in parampara. They are all glorious.

    Gour Govinda Swami: That is one of our considerations, but some are prominent, as you say some four generation there is gap why they are
    not there in parampara?

    Because they are not so prominent. Those who are prominent, they are in the line in parampara, their names are mentioned, others names are not mentioned. THEY ARE IN THE LINE.

    Guru in Different Form:
    891124 Darsan_ Guru Tattva in ISKCON

    Krishnananda Das: Sometimes Srila Prabhupada somewhere, I cannot remember exactly but he mentions, the spiritual master sometimes has to come back to the material world to fetch his disciple. Does it mean the spiritual master in principle or the . . . . . (?) spiritual master?

    Gurudeva: Spiritual master in that form will not come. In other form he’ll come.

    Janeswar Das: The same spiritual master though?

    Gurudeva: Yes, yes. But not that form, some other form. If you have eye you can recognize him, if you have eye you can recognize him.

    Anyhow I feel the presence of my spiritual master always. I never feel myself separated so I feel myself secure. And every day I could remember when I am staying here. I am not staying in that building, I am staying here. My Guru Maharaja stayed here. I feel his presence. How do you say, so we keep this thatched house as it is, we never, just some remodelizing may be here, but thatching must be there because he stayed here in this house. Tirtha! This is tirtha. Do you know tirtha?

    Devotee: tirtha.

    Gurudeva: Place of pilgrimage, isn’t it? Yes, isn’t it? Prabhupada was here, place of pilgrimage, dust is here, Prabhupada’s dust, isn’t it? He was taking bath there, that bathroom is there.

    Bhubaneshwar Dham Ki Jai!
    Srila Prabhupada, Ki Jai!
    Srila Gurudeva, Ki Jai!

      That tirtha, Krsna Balarama Mandir is also the place of the samadhi of our dearest, Srila Gurudeva.

      Is it now just, “Brick and Mortar”?……

      Jaya Murali-ji!

      Everyone bring a book bag to Kartik this year, we will fill it full of books for you. There will be at least 20,000 visiting devotees plus the resident devotees. Lets ‘Preach to the Preachers’ by distributing Gurudeva;’s books to one and all.

      Hari Hari.

      Gurudeva said, “the books are most important. If the electricity stops there will still be books to read. If everything else stops make sure the books go out!!!

      Gurudeva has been correct with everything he has said so now Gurudeva said, “if the electricity stops…” Prophesy or what?”

      Gurudeva said to me, “print everything that I have ever said.”
      What is the use of printing it if we do not distribute it.

      Gurudeva said, “one book gets to so many.”

      Everyone should get their hands on a box of Gurudeva’s books, let’s really commit, and stand on a street corner anywhere and start distributing them everywhere, en-masse. Pump them out. Gurudeva’s glories and Gurudeva’s words.

      Maybe we should have a book marathon in Vrndavan this year!

      Your lowly servant,
      Nimai Pandit dasa.

        Jai Nimai Prabhu-ji

        Looks like you have made up your mind and your plan. That’s all right…

        Books are definitely very important. But really, just the beginning of the full mission. You want to do something BIG, see the BIGGER picture and then
        Jump in!…. the water is fine!

        Jai Srila Gurudeva, Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja!

    • Murali Krsna Swami May 12, 2012 at 4:55 am #

    That’s GREAT and absolutely AUSPICIOUS, please arrange a BIG festival for “THE MAHABHAGAVATA VAISNAVA ACARYA” His Divine Grace Srila Gurudeva. The wide glorification of such a maha-bhagavata bonafide spiritual master would be a real relief to the suffering living entity of entire world. The mother earth is crying for that. She will be very much happy to seeing such type of festival. Such festival will quench the thirst of the suffering condition and unfortunate soul like me. I pray to all the devotees of such a exalted intimate parsad of Sriman Mahaprabhu, PLEASE MAKE AN ARRANGEMENT for that festival as soon as possible at BBSR. We will give our entire labor for the whole festival at any cost.

    • Nimai Pandit dasa May 11, 2012 at 7:59 pm #

      Prabhu, We can have many festivals for our Gurudeva.
      Sounds great!

      However I have been saying this for 20 years we should promote Gurudeva’s glories as they are, not a refined, bleached, deodorised, sanitised version of our Gurudeva, but the real Glories of our Gurudeva. let everyone know who our Gurudeva was. Really!!!

      Our Gurudeva is not just another one of the trees in the forest, he is the giant mountain, the support for all the other trees.

      Then we will really be churning the ocean of nectar for one and all.

      Actually there was a big, monster programme for our Gurudeva last year in Bali, there were many local devotees, maybe a 1,000 local devotees, but not many disciples from the west…! Jagadish Pandit was there, Murali Krsna, Puspa Gopal and Chandrasekhara from Singapore, Isha Prakash, Ambarisha, myself and the wife. The western contingency was very small. Muni Maharaja made an appearance.

    Thank you for posting this discourse, but it is already on our website:

  5. Murali Krsna Swami May 9, 2012 at 5:02 pm #

    When Oh When, will that day be ours that we can, with great ecstasy chant and dance together doing prema nama sankirtan for the pleasure of our beloved Srila Gurudeva???
    I am just waiting for that day!


    • Nimai Pandit dasa May 9, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

      Well let’s organise a great grand festival for our Great Grand Gurudeva and everyone come.
      Bali last year was the perfect opportunity for that but not too may came from the west. It was a great chance to come together.
      And if it happens everyone should place their prejudices behind them and come in an all embracing mood. If that is at all possible. All should come and with only one prime directive to glorify our Gurudeva His Divine Grace Gour Govinda Swami.

      At least that would be a start!!!

      What does everyone think?
      Hari. Hari.

                  My humble suggestion is to hold it at Bhubaneshwar, Srila Prabhupada’s last founded project. And, Srila Gurudeva’s Samadhi.

                  That place, where we all have so many memories and past times to share.

                  Then all of our Indian godbrothers and sisters can also participate and share so many nice realizations as well.

                    I was thinking Vrndavan Kartik this year 2012! And then we can invite many of the devotees from the Vrndavan area there will be maybe 20,000 visiting devotees in Vrndavan this year.
                    It could be big.
                    But on another note in about 3 years time it will be the 20th anniversary of our illustrious Gurudeva’s disappearance. Do we want to do something for that.
                    But I re-iterate if we get together, everyone should place their prejudices behind them and come in an all embracing mood, as there is a few godbrothers really hanging onto (baggage) so to speak. I mean really hanging onto stuff. From all corners of the planet.

                    We should come together to glorify Gurudeva.

                      As an add-on:

                      20,000 devotees are not going to come you may get 200 maybe 300, but there will be devotees that who have never heard of Gurudeva and they will get the benefit of hearing about Gurudeva’s glories.

                      The real glorification first, is to follow Srila Gurudeva’s instructions, “As it Is” and to serve faithfully in his mission, Prabhupada’s mission.

                      Without understanding that, there is no unity and cooperation. If we cannot understand this, then how can we really help others to understand the mission and teachings of our Spiritual Master.

                      If we do not properly understand and cannot discuss what is the mission and teachings of our spiritual master, then what is the value and or potency in our so-called glorification?

                      Can only be sentimental and or self-serving as far as I am concerned….I am personally not interested in this. I sincerely wish everyone the best and sorry I misunderstood your intentions for wanting to get together.

                      Hare Krsna!

                      Srila Gurudeva is not disconnected to his full mission and his instructions to us to serve in that mission.

                      You fail to speak on the full mission and all that it entails and that we alluded to in our prior posts. Why neglecting the BIGGER picture?

                      Let us first understand and agree on what is the COMPLETE mission and it’s purpose. Without us understanding that, then how can there be unity and cooperation?

    I am missing my brother Raghava Pandit prabhu. At least I can get his association through this medium. Thank you Nimai Pandit prabhu. Great service for our beloved spiritual master, Srila Gurudeva. This is the real glorification!

    Srila Gurudeva by his own example is teaching us how to properly serve and glorify the spiritual master, with his loving surrender and service to his revered spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada. That is the life and teachings of a real Acarya.

    Srila Gurudeva is teaching us that if we don’t glorify our Gurudeva and share our faith and realization with others, then how will others realize and develop faith in that personality.

    Srila Gurudeva has said that, “it is the duty of the disciple to always glorify his spiritual master by his words and deeds.” Let us try our best and encourage others to do the same. It’s the least we can do!

    Hare Krsna!
