(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 26 April 2016, Radhadesh, Belgium, Vyasa Puja Address)
I thank all the vaisnavas for their prayers. So many prayers. I will tell you the truth, my astrology is not good for a long life but then there were so many prayers of so many vaisnavas. I think these prayers are stronger. I have a good chance so let us go forward and whatever Krsna has in store for us, we shall accept.
When we are in the presence of the spiritual master then there are two aspects – what we offer to the spiritual master, the other aspect is what we receive from the spiritual master. We are very much on the receiving end now but after the disappearance of the spiritual master, then the crux of our relationship is what we offer to the spiritual master because it is there that we are again strongly reconnecting and we feel that connection coming to life.
So whatever Krsna has in store for us… if one day you have to carry on after I would have left this world, then please carry on in this mission of spreading Krsna Consciousness and assist me within this movement. Create space for individuals to be human beings and express their human nature and yet keep loyal to spiritual principles. Assist me whether I am here or not. Just do it and if you do it, I will be here always. Anyway, for now we hope I will make it till 108 and then I give up. That is enough!
I am sorry I can´t be with you tomorrow at Kingsday but it is a wonderful opportunity to give out a lot of mercy. Whenever I am in the harinama on Kingsday, yes, I am having some fun but I am not just thinking about my fun. I am thinking about how all those drunken, intoxicated people who are trying to have a party and how they are not having a party, and that somehow or other we have a party and they see it and they jump into the kirtan! When we come to that tunnel in Vondelpark then we cook it up in that tunnel and they come running into the kirtan.
Anyhow, I wanted to come to Radhadesh and meet you all especially after those alarming messages of the past months, I wanted to have this little bonding. That is the reason why I came, so thank you for being a part of it. So let us go forward and do something really nice for Srila Prabhupada. If I can help you in any way, please let me know. I will try and do what I can.
