Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

August 8

A preacher knows that the first step in helping someone reconnect with the Lord is to help them become submissive to Krsna’s will. A preacher also knows that such submission will make the living entity happy.

The pure devotee, who is experiencing the pleasures of pure devotion, knows that this is the kind of happiness ultimately sought by every living being. He also knows that the living beings don’t know what they are looking for. He hopes to show them.

A Vaisnava is one who sees the good in others, who sees Krsna in every living entity’s heart, and who always prays to Krsna to be allowed to fan the spark of Krsna consciousness. If we want to preach Krsna consciousness, we must be able to see Krsna in others’ hearts. If we see Krsna, we will also see the good. If we can’t see the good in others, how will we preach?

We can see how much people who contact a Vaishnava are willing to develop their love for Krishna. This is an internal change. A Vaishnava’s success is measured by how much he or she is able to bring about this internal change in others.

Followers and wealth are useful in preaching, but they are not the criteria by which we measure a successful preacher. Only those who serve real Vaishnavas receive the empowerment to preach effectively.

Srila Prabhupada was so successful in his preaching because he thought only of his spiritual master’s order. Then, automatically, he was able to show compassion for the fallen souls. Such devotees continue to glorify the Lord wherever they are. Let us follow his example. That is the meaning of becoming a Prabhupadanuga.

Srila Prabhupada emphasizes that those who realize Krishna as the goal of life, will help others to become Krishna conscious. This is the perfection of life. If we want to achieve life’s topmost perfection, we will not look for our own satisfaction but to Krishna’s pleasure.
