"Yes, I am not doing anything, but I will try to do."

(Madan Mohan Das ) #1

Joy Nitai , Joy Nitaipreshthji , Joy Guru Parampara

Vaishnava seva (বৈষ্ণব সেবা): If you have money, you can do Vaishnav
seva; if you have no money, you can talk nicely, humbly with the devotees. If some devotee comes to your house and you have nothing, you can give them a glass water. This is Vaishnav etiquette—if somebody comes to your house, even if it is your enemy, at least you should give them a glass of water. In this way you can increase your service mood properly.

Jive daya (জীবে দয়া): You can give benefit to the jiva souls by using
everything for the service to the Lord: you offer a flower, you cook some
rice, make chapatis or cut vegetables—it all comes from a tree or a
plant, and when you offer everything to the Lord, everybody gets benefit
through you. That is called devotion and this is the householder
life—to do so that everybody gets benefit from you.

Name ruchi (নামে রুচি): Always chant the Holy Name. It is not
necessary to always chant on the mala, but you can always chant without
mala—when you are driving your car, etc. You can chant the Holy Name at any time and in any place.

কি শয়নে, কি ভোজনে, কিবা জাগরণে ।

অহর্নিশ চিন্ত কৃষ্ণ, বলহ বদনে ॥

ki sayane, ki bhojane, kiba jagarane

aharnisa chinta krsna, balaha vadane

Whether you are sleeping, eating, or resting, always chant the Name of
Sri Chaitanya-bhagavat, Madhya-khanda, 28.28

In this way you can increase your spiritual life. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu said,
“জীবে দয়া, নামে রুচি, বৈষ্ণব সেবা, jive daya, Name ruchi, Vaishnava
seva—this is our only religion, or duty (dharma).”

Who can chant the Holy Name?

দৈন্য, দয়া, অন্যে মান, প্রতিষ্ঠা বর্জ্জন ।

চারিগুণে গুণী হই করহ কীর্ত্তন ॥

dainya, daya, anye mana, pratistha-varjana

chari gune guni hai karaha kirtana

Humility, compassion, honouring others, and giving up prestige—become qualified with these four qualities and chant the Name.

“Humility, kindness, giving honour to others and rejecting, avoiding name and fame.” It is not necessary to show others that you are doing some service. If anybody tells me, “You are not doing anything.” Yes, I am not doing anything, but I will try to do.
