To be in Vrindavan in the association of devotees is an inconceivacle good fortune. We should never think that we deserve but is has been given tio us. It is a matchless gift. If our hearts are truly grateful and we express that gratitude through our humble appreciation for Srila Prabhupada's mercy and that all of our previous acaryas and our Lord Sri Radha Shyamsunder and we express our gratitude through our service attitude. Vrindavan is a land of bhakti.
Srila Prabhupada says there is a very thin layer that covers Vrindavan. We must not see from our eyes but from the heart. When we hear from scriptures, we develop the faith that nothing can contaminate Vrindavan. But it is only revealed through devotion and surrender. Only by pure devotion I can be seen as I am standing before you. Therefore it is very important that when we come to Vrindavan we can't take anything for granted. We don't come here to enjoy or as a vacation. we come to Vrindavan to get purified and perform any service in association of devotees.
