После года интенсивной проповеди собираюсь домой, в Шри Вриндавана-дхаму
Tomorrow, after a year of intense preaching, I am going home to Sri Vrindavan dhama. It is only by the mercy of Srila Prabhupada and the saints that I can return. I often remember the words of Srinivas Acarya as he departed Vrindavan for preaching. As soon as he left, he was hankering to return.
“Shall I, a worthless person ever again see the deities of Govinda, Gopinath, Madan Mohan, Radha Vinode, Radha Mohan and Radha Damodar? Will prabhu Sri Gopal Bhatta ever bring me back to Vrindavan or give me the opportunity to serve his lotus feet again? Shall Lokanath Goswami, the incarnation of kindness, bestow his grace upon me again? Catching hold of the hair of this sinner, will the gracious Bhugarbha Goswami ever bring me back again? Will Raghunath Das Goswami, the embodiment of kindness, ever again fulfill my desires? Srila Jiva Goswami is the light of the poor and the unfortunate people. Will I ever see his feet again? O associates of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, will you ever again bring such an unfortunate soul as me to Vrindavan and allow me to enjoy your company”
[ Srila Narahari Chakravarti Thakur, Sri Bhakti-ratnakara ]
