On 22nd November we celebrated the disappearance day of Srila Gaura kisora Dasa Babaji Maharaj.
In the morning Srimad Bhagavatam class H.G. Raghav Pandit prabhu discussed various nice pastimes of Babaji Maharaj. Most of them express the highly renounce order of life accepted by Babaji Maharaj to not distract from Krishna conciousness. One of the very interesting past time was
One day Srila Gaura Kisora dasa Babaji Maharaja wrapped his body and two feet with a cloth. Sitting covered like this he said, “Many persons, after being informed by others, come here to collect the dust from my feet. I tell them I am not a Vaisnava. If you go to the vicinity where there are Vaisnavas with their feet pretentiously decorated and extended to touch, you can have unlimited dust. How can I bless you? I don’t have barfi or sandesh or rasagulla, or even sweet words. How can I bless you? Nowadays people are interested in spiritual masters who can give these things – wealth, good wife, sweet words – these cheating things are now taken as anakula (favourable).”
At 12 pm all the devotees assembled in the temple , offered puspanjali and H.G. Kesava prabhu sang the guru ashtakam.
Srila Gaura Kisora dasa Babaji Maharaja Ji Ki Jai, Jagat Guru Srila Prabhupada Ki Jai, Samvet Gaura Bhakta Vrinda Ki Jai!!
