Bhajan is needed to support our preaching, that personal bhajan will give us depth and strength but then beyond it we go and somehow or other preach – immediately there is ecstasy.
We remember the stories in Lilamrita…the times when the first Christmas marathons were invented accidently…..
Rameswara was describing how he was the first one back in the temple. He thought he was the latest, he thought he had been the longest that day and he thought he had broken all world records! He done more books than he ever did and came back to the temple about midnight and ……Nobody was back yet! Everyone was out!
They had discovered the Christmas marathon!
