A Fortunate Soul

Srila Bhakti Nirmal Acharya Maharaj brings in the first new resident of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math in 2013.

This camel will perform the service of attracting visitors to circumambulate Sri Giriraj Govardhan and Sri Govinda Kunda.

In this way lost souls, whose lives, without devotion, are no better than those of camels, will acquire sukriti and have the chance to participate in the Math’s kirtans and classes.

shva-vid-varahoshtra-kharaih samstutah purushah pasuh
na yat-karna-pathopeto jatu nama gadagrajah
(Srimad Bhagavatam: 2.3.19)

One who has never heard Krishna’s Name is comparable to an animal, such as a dog, camel, donkey, or stool-eating pig (like a dog, he becomes angry without cause; like a camel, he bears heavy burdens; like a donkey, he is beaten; and like a pig, he eats unofferable foods).”
