His Preaching is Non-different from His Conduct

The founder acharya of Gopinath Gaudiya Math, Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, who is considered an outstanding personality of this world once commented, “All the Gaudiya Vaishnavas, sannyasis, and saints are parts of my body, but Srimad Bhakti Ballabh Tirtha Maharaj is the core of my heart.”

We are compelled to think how he has won the heart of this ideal. It is only due to his dedicated service attitude since his early life till date. 

Guruji gives emphasis to practise the instructions of the scriptures before preaching to others. He says, ‘Don’t follow me, follow my lecture only’ is applicable in politics.

Regarding preaching of dharma, he would say that our words will became impactful only to the extent we follow them in our own lives. Preaching without conduct is lifeless. It will only be an entertainment, and no one will be benefitted from it.
