Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

February 17

A devotee cares about the sufferings of others. Because a devotee is nonenvious, he does not want to see others have to suffer unecessarily.

Sometimes Krsna, in order to keep His garden flourishing, has to weed his garden. In other words, sometimes if we see devotees leaving, it could also be that Krsna is weeding His garden. We should therefore all try to become valuable flowers in Krsna's garden. Don't behave in a way that will cause people to have a wrong impression of our movement and a wrong impression of it's leaders. Take up Srila Prabhupada's mission and learn how to give yourself by helping others in their Krsna consciousness.

The master naturally feels responsible for the behavior of his servant. He's therefore not happy if his servants behave well only in his presence. There must also be good behavior in his absence. He needs to know how you associate with each other, appreciate each other, overlook the faults of each other and see the good qualities in each other. He's concerned that you can come together to glorify the Lord despite all obstacles, in spite of all the extra baggage (anarthas) we carry with us into this movement.

New people will judge both Krsna consciousness and this movement by how all of you associate with each other. They will especially look to see how the older devotees are associating with each other.

Новые люди судят о сознании Кришны и об этом движении по тому, как все вы общаетесь друг с другом. Они особенно обращают внимание на то, как старшие преданные общаются друг с другом.

One who takes shelter in the process of hearing, always lends his ear in submissive inquiry to the transcendental topics which are flowing from the mouths of Vaisnavas. The result is that one forgets about the necessities of life and becomes free from illusion, fear and lamentation. This is real shelter.

The daksina I have to submit to my spiritual master is to manifest unconditional surrender, to continue making honest inquiries to his disciples and to have a serving temperament. That is daksina.
