100- Words of Blessing
1. What blessings did Sri Bhaktivinoda Thakura shower on the new year?
O New Year, all glories to you! Pay special attention to the development of Sri Mayapura. Publish all devotional literature. Satisfy the people of the world by distributing the Lord's holy names. Guide the living entities in such a way that they take to chanting the holy names of the Lord while cultivating pure devotional service
(Sajjana Tosanl 6/1)
2. How did Sri Bhaktivinoda Thakura advise the jnanis ?
O brothers! March ahead. Penetrate the realm of the transcendental effulgence and enter the Supreme Lord's spiritual abode. There you can meet with the Supreme Brahman face to face and see His pastimes. Then you will actually relish uninterrupted spiritual bliss and not be dry like a piece of wood. (Caitanya-siksamrta 6/3)
3. What is Sri Bhaktivinoda Thakura's order to all living entities?
O brothers! Remain detached from material enjoyment, but throw detachment from your heart when it comes to serving the Supreme Lord. Cultivate remembrance of the Supreme Lord's eternal pastimes and become intimate with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Attain bhdva-bhakti by practicing sddhana-bhakti. Then, with the help of bhdva-bhakti, attain the transcendental state of prema-bhakti. See past the relative forms of the Controller or Supersoul and attain the original eternal form of the Supreme Lord with love and devotion.
(Sajjana Tosani 2/6)
