About Shrila Bhaktishastri Parampada das Babaji Maharaj: I miss my Gurupadapadma so so so much. He was the softest, humblest, and the most saral Vaishnav I have ever met in my life. He never dreamt of even a drop of duplicity. It was a word alien to him.
“When I was a brahmachari for 12 years, I cleaned the toilets of other devotees. That training helps me to remain in touch with humility even now. Such menial service training is essential before one even aspires to be a preacher.”
namruchi, jiva doya, vaisnava sevana. All should go hand in hand.
