Quotes Of The Day

Niranjana Swami
Lectures from a Disciple, Vol. 2, "Enthusiasm for Devotional Service"

If we have no enthusiasm for our work, we will not do it. If we have no enthusiasm for our sadhana, we will become negligent in our worship. Negligence is born out of inactivity (laziness), apathy, or indifference. Utsaha conquers all three.

Srila Prabhupada
Lecture on Bhagavad-gita 4.10, Vrndavana, August 2, 1974

Intelligent persons must be aware of the miserable condition of this material existence and try to get out of it. Is there any doubt? Eh? This is the fact. So our only business is how to get out of this material existence. That is our only business, not that how we can adjust things here and become happy. That is called karmi, fools. It is a fact that so long you'll be here in this material world, however you may try to adjust things to become happy, it will be never possible. It will be never possible. They are trying to be materially happy in the western world. They do not know actually what is happiness, but material happiness means sex life. So sex life they are every day enjoying. And still, they go to the naked dance to see if there is happiness. Why there will be happiness? There cannot be any happiness. But this is adjustment. They are trying this way or that way. That's all.
