Gaudiya Vaishnava reflections


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
