At one stage on my evening japa walk today, the first day of Purusottama, my mind became restless, which disturbed me a lot, and I didn’t know what to do. Then suddenly within me I heard my disciple Damodar’s ringtone of Sripada Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja preaching forcefully: “Why are you unhappy? Because you are not surrendered. Surrender just now! Just now surrender and become happy, and there will be no more anxieties.” I began to earnestly pray to Maharaja to help me. And I felt immediate relief. All the agitation was gone, and my mind was peaceful. Then, sitting down, I chanted some of my best japa ever.
I pray that ’s mercy will be with me for the rest of the month—and for all eternity.
Yours in service,
