All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga

"Such Bright Promise"

A message of hope: following the disappearance of Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj, Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj glorifies and reflects on the living gift given by His Divine Grace.

Excerpt from The Divine Servitor

What Srila Guru Maharaj [Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj] has given to the world is living and is with the highest prospect of fulfilment. He has glorified and distributed pure Vaikuntha-Nama. By following the path of pure chanting with service-mood, gradually we can connect with the Lord's figure and colour, His qualities, then His associates and paraphernalia, and then His Pastimes. We can be given the chance to enter there and be given some duty if we may be blessed by Him with some engagement.

Srila Guru Maharaj is in front of us and is guiding us in this line. With firm faith, simply we are to follow the process that he is continually describing to us. With this real spiritual connection the path must take us to where we are welcome as a willing servitor. In the highest position all labour is a labour of love and there is no weariness, indifference or hate there. Srila Guru Maharaj has given such bright promise of that land, and that has drawn the fortunate souls throughout the whole world to his lotus feet.

The prospect is great, but no doubt these are difficult times for all the devotees now that Srila Guru Maharaj has disappeared from our immediate vision. It is a time of test, but Srila Guru Maharaj himself gave assurance that those who are victorious in standing by the ideal even after the disappearance of their Guru, will be glorified and successful in spiritual life.
