Connecting disciples of His Holiness Jayapataka Swami
All glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga
All glories to Srila Prabhupad
Please accept my humble obeisances unto all merciful vaishnava's lotus feet since they are the desire trees who can fulfill our all desires.
It is known that Guru Maharaj is now in Coimbatore under going theraphies in AVP. I use to serve Gurudev in shifts some time.
After the stroke guru maharaj is unable to chant his rounds in beads. so he use to chant in clicker with tulasi bead. and also he is now a days very busy in his therapies for various aspects.
Guru maharaj now chants the holy name in every step and in every therapy and every moment. Even he is in some therapy like exercises or any kind of therapy for face or eye or even his walking or while eating prasadam he chants the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra.
Would all you believe that Guru Dev chants in his sleep too ?
But we have to believe Guru dev chants the Hare Krishna Maha mantra even in his sleep...
Last saturday i was in afternoon shift along with Janakiram prabhu. I noticed that guru dev was moving his thumb finger towards his middle finger very mildly often. it was for almost some ten minutes after once he started sleeping. i was wondering what is happening. then i realized it was the action of his lotus fingers in counting the holy name instead of clicker. It was amazing to see!!! such a self realization and a control even in this un favorable situation when his body is not cooperating and inability to speak and walk. even without considering all these things Guru Dev is chanting his japa and show us a example how we have to be!!!
How it is possible?
Guru Dev chants the holy name in his sub conscious mind. But it is possible for the self realized souls only. or for those who are surrendered completely and purely depended on the Lord's Mercy. who are really serving Lord Gauranga and spreading the glories!!!
Due to therapies, there is very less time for Guru Maharaj to take rest. but he is restless in Chanting the holy name and speaking about Lord Krishna.
Where we are?
If we get time after completing our 16 rounds of Japa we keep a side our bead bag along with our mind. we indulge in to the material world. either by working for livelihood or with our friends or with our family or relatives. All the talks would be of no use and all those are "Asat Krishna" which are not favorable to our Krishna Consciousness. If we get a un favorable situation in our life then we use not to chant and remember instead of thinking that Lord Gauranga is the supreme person. we get into the problem and spoil our Krishna consciousness.
I was even struggling to complete my rounds as many devotees but now i am fixed to complete my japa then and there itself after seeing Guru Dev.
We are capable and our body co-operates in all the ways and situations are even favouarble we get laziness for chanting our Japa. But if we take Guru Dev as example for japa then we shall also be able to be in Krishna Consciousness every moment in this material world. since we are not aware that which moment will be last moment.
Prepare for the last moment. chant chant chant the holy name of the Lord Krishna!!!
Krishna confirms in bhagavad gita
yam yam vapi smaran bhavam
tyajaty ante kalevaram
tam tam evaiti kaunteya
Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body, that state he will attain without fail. [B.G - 8.6]
