“Who will feel separation?”


Who will feel separation? Those special persons who have realized their immense obligation and indebtedness to Gurudeva for all they have received, and who have rendered much service to him with visrambha-bhava, intimacy. They will weep. They consideration that, “I’m so low and my Gurudeva is in such a high stage” will not be there. Awe and reverence will not be there; otherwise one cannot weep. In sastra it is said, visrambhena guror seva – the sevaka performs such intimate service to gurudeva that gurudeva remains always pleased with him.

The guru will not consider for even a moment that, “He is my servant and disciple.” Instead he will feel that, “He is my heart.”

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayan Goswami Maharaja, Srila Gurudeva

Thanks to Sudevi dasi for letting us use this ;)

    I can not read this text. Something wrong with the formatting of the text, too short lines.

    Thank you for posting this. Jhana Shakti prabhu read this entire article on Srila Gurudeva’s disappearance day and we all prayed for Gurudeva’s grace upon us and continued guidance. At the program many devotees offered very sweet and wonderful remembrances of Srila Gurudeva, along with lamentations and cries of separation. Everyone’s heart offerings were soft and sweet and Gurudeva’s help and presence surely comes to those who have faith and love for him.
