Srila Prabhupada's Quote Of The Day

Krsna said in the previous verse, mat-sthani sarva-bhutani na caham tesv avasthitah [Bg. 9.4]. That is explained in this verse that "Everything is resting upon Me. But at the same time," na caham tesv avasthitah, "they are not also in Me." This particular portion has to be understood. When Krsna says, God says, that everything is resting upon Him, that means everything is resting upon His expanded energy, not personally on Him. Personally He is aloof. Therefore it is said, na ca mat-sthani bhutani. The same example. Just like when we say everything is resting on the sunshine, that does not mean everything is in the sun but the sunshine is not different from the sun.

Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

We often speak about this required faith—sraddha.  Sraddha means that one must have firm conviction that, by chanting the Holy Name of the Lord and rendering devotional service to the Lord, automatically all one's subsidiary duties can be fulfilled.  This sraddha is favorable for the execution of bhakti, but in what should we place our faith?  We must place our faith in the pure Holy Name.  It is that pure Holy Name, which will deliver us from the material world; that will bring us to the lotus feet of the Lord: Krsna nama haite pabe krsnera carana: Indeed, simply by chanting the Hare Krishna mantra, one will be able to see the lotus feet of the Lord.” (CC Adi 7.73). Therefore, the relationship between the spiritual master and the disciple is based upon those instructions which are related to the Holy Name of the Lord.
