Hare Krishna

This is our yearly Mayapur festival; you are all welcome to Mayapur. This is the best welcome final welcome in Dhama, no welcome is better than this. This is where you have to finally end up going back to godhead back to home. Srila Prabhupada founded ISKCON in 1966 and everything started from there.

Srila Prabhupada has revealed the dhama for us, acharyas revealed the dhama for us. Who knew Mayapur but now it has become world famous. There was a time when Mayapur was not known but now it’s known all over that’s speciality of Srila Prabhupada

Srila Prabhupada also revealed Caitanya Mahaprabhu for us and with that Hari was also made known to the world by Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada was that chosen Senapati Bhakta, Srila Prabhupada ki…….jai.

So dhama became known to the world and Holy Name became known to the world then Srila Prabhupada gave us ISKCON to prove the prediction of Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
“prithivite ache yata nagaradi grama
sarvatra pracara haibe mora nama”
So this prediction was there but hardly any one ould understand the prediction, but Srila Prabhupada Understood ‘prithivite’ all over not only Bengal. Srila Prabhupada became the ambassador of the Holy Name. The prediction is the will of the Lord it’s not modis strategy or Obamas …its Lords strategy who could avoid it, stop it. So many places are antigod..this ism..that ism..materialism… Seeing is believing…pratyaksya vada.

So we start doubting but its Lord’s desire. So spread the Holy Name, Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Ishvar of Ishvar, Vaikuntha nayak, Jagannath, Guaranga Mahaprabhu ki jai…sleeping people can’t spread Krishna consciousness.

So you have assembled her, you have been touched by Guaranga..Guaranga…Guaranga. You have come in contact with Guaranga, Lord has identified you so it’s an arrangement of the Lord not accident. Its arrangement of the Lord it’s not an accident (Maharaj says I always say this). You are here for a reason, you the soul that’s what you are; you are not a lump of matter the dead matter. This Krishna consciousness is not for the dead matter it’s for the soul it’s for liberation of the soul from the body.

The mind has all the ideas of enjoying, the desire are there right in the mind. So first you come in contact with the Name then from Nama to Dhama that Nama brings you to dhama then you landed up here …nama to dhama

So keep chanting, Kirtan mela is also the reason why you are here. Mayavadi says Lord has no form so they are limiting Lord. Lord is everywhere. Srila Prabhupada revealed the dham for us he started festivals for us. Lord has form so we also have form, soul can talk walk this is how the soul participates in Lords Lila. So Lord had eternal abode, eternal form. So Srila Prabhupada informed the whole world about Mayapur Vrindavan jaganath Puri.

Pralaya does not harm the dhama. Markande muni found Mayapur intact at the time of pralaya. First festival in mayapur 1972, 50 devotees were present for the festival. Then Srila Prabhupada did 3 ground breaking ceremonies first at Mayapur then Vrindavan then Mumbai that was his vision all in 1972. (Maharaj says –In 73 I attended mayapur festival and then onwards..)

Srila Prabhupada revealed the dhama and brought his disciples here. Every year number of devotes is increasing. Srila Prabhupada said the Mayapur festival is like the matsya avatar…he was small in kamandalu then he became big then he was put in pond then finally in ocean. So Srila Prabhupada said our festival is like the matsya avatar now every year the number is increasing all buildings full, preaching is increasing then from nama to Dham.

So you are soul, you won’t realize in few minutes but as you progress in devotional life you will realize. So don’t just let your body grow. It grows as we grow in age and we become vayovrudha but important is becoming jnana vrudha becoming more realized. Prahalad Maharaj was jnana vrudha and hiranyakasapu was vayovrudha.

Green Coconut you shake you hear voice. Then as it grows it becomes separate from the cover. Detached from it, it’s in the shell but not attached to it. ‘You are of this world but you are not of this world’ good words to understand.

So continue chanting grow up do not remain a child, (Maharaj says) how cud I serve? One disciple was asking, I said chant you have taken vow to chant and read books, take association. We are sadhaka, there are 64 components of Bhakti if you can’t do 64 do 9 if you can’t do 9 do 5 of them. Sadhu sanga, nama sankirtan, bhagvat sravan, dhama vasa and vigraha aradhana and if you can’t do 5 just do chanting and if you can’t do that then forget.

Krishna conscious life is life. So propagate Krishna consciousness its nature of devotee to preach like ant they see one grain of sugar and they call all the ants come come and ant verses dog mentality.

So some Indians are not Indians ‘mere juta hai Japani patlun englisthani’. Devotees are real Indians, to make your life perfect ‘janma sarthaka kari karo paropakara’ –give- we have obligation ‘janma sarthaka’ by propagation of Krishna consciousness by all your talent.

So devotees go all around preaching that’s what you need to do in whatever state you are we have this obligation of spreading the Holy Name. ‘bharata-bhumite manusya janma haila yara janma sarthaka kari’ karo paropakara’ (Cc. Adi 9.41)
