If anyone will call out these names, Jaya Rupa Santana, Bhatta Raghunatha….. they will mercifully come and give mercy to that Sadhaka so that all anarthas and little things will go away and Krishna prema will come.
Always remember this and be peaceful and try to leave this body as a piece of cloth. Never fear from death. Let it come; like Bhisma, he never feared from death; he always welcomed death. I think that at the time of death, of his departure from this world, he had no pain or suffering.
So always chant and try to concentrate your mind at the lotus feet of Radha and Krishna conjugal. Always, “Radha Madhava, Radha Govinda, Radha Gopinatha, Radha Syamasundar,” always. If you cannot chant Hare Krishna for so long, then only “Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, “Radhe, Jaya Sri Radhe, Radhe.” Always remember this. Yama will not come; that is guaranteed. Always chant. In Vrindavan, Yama will not come after you. All of this is going on by the arrangement of Krishna. And if there is anything painful coming, then “Radhe Radhe, Radhe!”
I came to Swamiji in the same state. One day before he was talking with me and the next day he left. Hearing Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, he went to Krishna and Radha. You should remember and call to Srimati Radhika more than Krishna because she is your Swaminiji. Your Master is Srimati Radhika. Have you this mood in your heart? Always, keep this mood in your heart.
The Master of Vrindavan is Srimati Radhika. You are alright. I am so much happy to see you, but I am unhappy feeling that a devotee like you is separating from me. You are a good and sincere devotee.
We will meet forever in Giriraja under a Tamal tree. We will meet again and you will be in a very good and beautiful shape, like a gopi (Gurudeva laughing).
Swamiji loved me also, so he kept me at his lotus feet. I am so glad. With Radha Krishna, Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Prabhupada, Giriraja Maharaja, and I will also be in your heart always. Yes! “Narayana, Narayana”. Yama cannot come…”
