“Lord Nityananda was by nature very merciful and funny. Being merciful, He spoke to Raghunatha dasa as follows. ‘You are just like a thief, for instead of coming near, you stay away at a distant place. Now that I have captured you, I shall punish you. Make a festival and feed all My associates yogurt and chipped rice.’ Hearing this, Raghunatha dasa was greatly pleased.” —Sri Caitanya-caritamrta Antya 6.49–51

Giriraj Swami spoke to friends and devotees  in Srila Prabhupada’s quarters.

“Srila Prabhupada was talking about forming a political party. There was a movement in America that the government shouldn’t have the slogan ‘In God We Trust’ on money and elsewhere, because what about the Americans who don’t believe in God? So Prabhupada said that we must capture the power before they remove it. And some of his disciples formed the ‘In God We Trust’ party.”

Nrsimha-caturdasi Festival, April 28, Carpinteria, California

“Prahlada Maharaja said that even saintly persons are pleased when a snake or a scorpion is killed. The significance of this statement is that Nrsimhadeva had killed the demon Hiranyakasipu, but he was still angry. He was still in a ferocious mood because he thought that people may criticize or find fault with him that he had killed the father of this five-year-old boy and now the boy had no father. So, in order to pacify the Lord, Prahlada uttered this verse: even a saintly person is happy when a snake or a scorpion is killed. He is telling Lord Nrsimhadeva not to worry, that no one will be displeased with him for this action, because Hiranyakasipu was like a snake or a scorpion biting and stinging people for no reason, and even saintly persons are pleased when such a person is killed. Then Lord Nrsimhadeva was pacified.”

Arca-vigraha Dasi’s Disappearance Celebration, April 21, Mumbai

From Carpinteria, Giriraj Swami spoke to devotees in Juhu, via Skype.

“One amazing experience Mother Arca-vigraha had was that when she was absorbed in Krishna katha she would be relived from the excruciating pain from her cancer.

“We have so many exalted devotees in this movement. Mother Arca-vigraha was certainly one of them. So, these occasions are good for us because we get to remember them. But we shouldn’t wait until devotees leave their bodies to appreciate and glorify them. We should do it whenever we get the opportunity, as a regular practice.”
