Srila Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj Vyasa Puja 2016 - Part 30

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.

This is in continuation of the previous offering titled "Srila Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj Vyasa Puja 2016", wherein we were hearing some of the glorifications of Maharaj, which were shared by the devotees in Sri Sri Radha Neel Madhav dham, Rajkot on the auspicious occasion of his Vyasa Puja. We shall continue to hear further.

HG Devakinandan Prabhuji: "Maharaj always saw good in everyone and never liked criticism. Whenever someone criticize about others to him, Maharaj just cut them off and thereby stopped the idea of finding faults. One thing I realized is Maharaj is directly in contact with Krishna and no initiation that Maharaj has given is accidental. Please never think that way and also please never think that, we cultivated someone and he is our cultivation and therefore Maharaj has initiated that person. No, Maharaj told me that he is eternally the spiritual master. So we are nothing actually."

HG Prasannatma Krishna Prabhuji: "Maharaj is very particular about services. Once there was a conflict between two devotees about cleaning the vessels. One of the devotee who was supposed to do the service, somehow avoided it and so for many days the devotee in charge of cooking and serving prasadam had to do this extra service in addition to his prescribed service. Seeing the careless attitude, another devotee went and informed Maharaj about this. Immediately Maharaj asked the devotee to bring the devotee who was skipping the service in the kitchen. Maharaj then came to the kitchen sat on a chair and told the devotee who was doing extra service, "My dear son, I will wash the vessels." Chastising the devotee who skipped the service Maharaj said, "Don't you see all these service? How many times will others keep doing the service allotted for you? First finish your service, then whatever time is remaining, you chant."

We are very fortunate to be in association of nice devotees here. We pray that life after life, we engage in the service of Maharaj and devotees and never offend anyone and always be obedient."

Krishna willing, we shall continue to hear further glories of Maharaj in the subsequent offering.

Hare Krishna.

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Sudarshana devi dasi.
