Jai Gurudeva!

"The new favorable contacts we make are like an uncut diamond. It is valuable, but its true value only becomes realized when it is cut and polished.

That process is like the cultivation of the new people and building the relationships with them. Finally when the gem is fully cut and polished it becomes so Valuable.

That is when the devotees are more fully developed in their Krishna Consciousness and ready to take up temple service or serve in a Nama Hatta Bhakti Vrksa group (cell)."

Question : Sometimes taking austerities is increase in vairagya and in turn lead to devotion & bhakthi. what kind of austerity can be taken, or whether it is only good during the vrata time( Damodar month or some special vrata time) ?

Srila Gurumaharaj : Too much austerities, that, they make the heart hard, they become very tolerant to do austerities. So, that makes the heart hard, tough. Whereas for devotional service, it is better to have a soft heart, so we can have love of Krsna. So, too much austerities are which, fasting for one day or something, that's not a big thing, but some people they do, extended fasts, 40 days fast, one week fast and all kinds of very heavy fast. They may do such fast but it is not in itself beneficial for bhakthi. Say you are traveling and there is no vegetarian food, so you fast. That's because there is no food and you can't eat and that's a kind of thing that happens in bhakthi. Sometimes you eat some fruit, you eat some curd rice or something because all the sambar has got onions in it. So some devotees also accept some austerity, sometimes for their devotional service but, some are just into doing some extreme tapasya, which does not have any devotional link to it, its simply to show how renounced they are, and to prove to themselves and to the world that they can do it and this thing can be an obstacle in one's devotional service.

There was once a Sannyasi, who wanted to circumambulate the Ganges. He wanted to do Ganga parikrama, walk on one side of the Ganga up to Gomukh and come around the other side and go down to "Sagar" swim over and walk back up the other side and complete the entire parikrama of the Ganga, may be, it must be over 4000 miles, 4000 km, roughly, I don't know the exact length of the Ganga but, there might be about 2000 km, I am speculating. Anyone knows the length of the Ganga? Some geography students here, that know, you're a
student? You don't know? It's a long way 3, 4, 5 '000miles or so, especially because it's turning. Then when he came back, he told Srila Bhakthi Siddanta Saraswathi Thakur, who told, don't do it, because, it's nothing to do with bhakthi, he said you should preach. Lord Caitanya asked us to preach Bhagavat-Gita, why you should go and do all this parikrama. It's like trying to do some kind of punya karma. So he disobeyed the guru and did it any way. Came back, "I did it". When he came back, Srila Bhakthi Siddantha Saraswathi Thakur took away his danda, and said, "you are no longer a sannyasi, you are back to bramachari. You have to clean the pots.You go wash the pots". This is against bhakthi. Just doing something because we want to do it, show I can do it. If it is not serving Krsna's interest, even it may be otherwise a pious activity you shouldn't do.

Now sometimes, some ladies go on diets, in the west especially. They think they are too fat, so they go on dieting, dieting and then they get a problem that they actually start to become very very skinny. I think they call it-"anorexia". They cannot eat any more. Their health goes down, and so it becomes like another disease. Even they are skinny, they think I am still too fat. It becomes like a fat phobia. So these are the kind of different extremes the mind go and so try to avoid the extremes. We do Ekadasis, we do Janmastami, and we do so many fasting. We don't do any kind of extreme fasting. Rather our fasting is we take Krsna Prasad. We fast from other food. In emergency we take vegetarian food. That's our fasting.

Respect the Spiritual Master

If we make the mission of our spiritual master as our priority, then that chastity will produce amazing results
