What should be one’s mood while doing service during parikrama?

Jayapataka Swami: You see Lord Caitanya, He married Lakshmi Priya, she was Sridevi and then He married Vishnu Priya, she was Bhu devi. In holy dham she is Niladevi. So you are walking on Lakshmi, Niladevi. You should be very, very, very, very devotional and the dham is an expansion from the spiritual world. Like an embassy is representative of a country so, here the holy dham is an extension of the spiritual world. So with utmost respect and devotion for the holy dham, we are entering the dham, with a service attitude. We want to serve all the devotees who are coming to perform the Navadvip parikrama. Tomorrow morning, we have the adivas ceremony, where we go to the Yoga pith, and say a sankalpa of the parikrama, because it says we should start and end our parikrama in Antardwip. Since we have many groups like six or seven groups, I don’t know how many groups this year. Since everybody goes out in different places, and goes around the dham. So we start off at the Yoga pith and we end here in the field in maha milan, in Antardwip. That Antardwip, Pancha Tattva are in Antardwip, and Radha Madhava are in Rudradvip. Bhakti Vinod Thakur, he saw a kirtan party turn into a raasa lila, here in Rudradvip.
