(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 24 April 2014, Radhadesh, Belgium, Caitanya Caritamrta Lecture)

kks_VP_2014I mentioned before that in my early spiritual life there was a devotee named Mahavirya who helped me a lot at that time. Over the years, I completely lost touch with him but then someone found out his phone number.

So I called him the other day and he was completely in the same mood of the 70’s, nothing has changed – sixty-four rounds every day at least or more, just going strong and preaching all the time! In those days, devotees did not have conversations, they did not do that, they were always preaching to each other. So he started preaching up a storm to me.

After a while he said, ‘You are also supposed to say something.’ Nothing I could say anymore after that! (laughter) He just preached me off my feet! He said different things, like, ‘How many disciples do you have?’ then he said, ‘You must be the most happy man!’ and I said, ‘Well, it is not that nice!’ (laughter) ‘It’s okay but it is not that blissful!’ and he said, ‘No, guru must be the most happy man, otherwise how can he make anybody else happy?’ So, he said nice things like that.

One moment while we were speaking he said, ‘Never trust a guru who does not dance,’ which I have heard before, but still it is a very nice saying. Yes! Happiness must show like that, it must show in that we are relishing Krsna consciousness. Krsna consciousness is to be relished – Krsna is so wonderful, he is just so amazing because every moment with Krsna is the greatest blessing.

    Perfect choice of words gurudev. Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu himself thought us how to dance and our Srila Prabhupada also exemplify that.
