Radhanath Swami on Entering the realm of Navadwip

If you want to really enter into the realm of Navadwip, Lord Caitanya taught us this consciousness – gopé-bhartur pada-kamalayor däsa-däsa-däsa-däsänudäsa. We should not try to become the master or the proprietor or the controller. If you want to know Krishna you have to put Vaishnavas in front of yourself. We should not be self-centred. It is our service attitude that attracts Krishna to empower us to taste the sweetness of the holy name; to be able to actually experience and see the beauty of the holy dham. Like Vrindavan Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His associates are eternally performing His pastimes here. We can feel it; we may even see it, according to our service attitude. Selfishness is the enemy, but yet we are so inclined to fall into that state of mind. The cure is to serve. So let us try to follow in the footsteps of Lord Caitanya’s example.
