Tridandisvami Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja
(A Lecture on Bhajana Rahasya)
New Braja, Badger, CA: June 1, 2002 â€“ Part 1
I offer my millions of humble obeisances unto the lotus feet of my paramaradhyadeva, Om Visnupada Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja, and the same unto the lotus feet of my siksa-guru, Om Visnupada Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja.
In the morning I visited the school and saw the students and teachers, and I became very satisfied. I want this school to advance more and more. The students should learn Vaisnava etiquette, they should learn to honor all Vaisnavas, they should fully learn our siddhanta, and they should be very polite and humble. The teachers should be very humble. If they are not humble, polite, and honoring their superiors, they will not be able to teach these principles to their students. I know personally that Vrajendrananda Prabhu and Nitya Manjari dasi are very humble and polite. I like them very much, and I want the other teachers to be like them. Because some of the teachers are young, sometimes they may become upset, but they should always see that they must practice themselves in order to teach. The students will learn by the behavior of the teachers. I want this school to advance still further, so that devotees may send students from every part of the world.
