All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!
Following our series of messages and news on our Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math we have some news from the lotus mouth of Srila Janardan Maharaj before he left our Soquel Ashram to visit the Guadalajara Math in Mexico.
“We are trying to give some encouragement to the devotees. Encouragement in their spiritual life means follow Sri Guru!
Then we understand that Srila Guru Maharaj, Srila Sridhar Maharaj, instructed Srila Gurudev to serve his devotees, his Deities and his Math.
So we are trying to serve Srila Govinda Maharaja’s mission.
And we have to be able to have some chastity to those instructions. Devotees have to show some chastity. The relationship between a devotee and the spiritual master is sometimes compared with that of a wife and a husband.
All we are asking is to go there for some time and show some support and give some help to Srila Acharya Maharaj so we can have some hope that we can weather this difficult situations.
Some difficulties are coming from material nature and this is a good opportunity to learn how to function with this test. We want to remember Srila Gurudev. We want to be able to support the Math but that means the devotees have to be tolerant. They have to be able to go to the math with a serving mood. Following Srila Gurudev’s instruction and being humble, tolerant and giving honor to others. If you can do that this will be very good!”
