Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

August 12

Any little endeavor for Krsna’s service is to the living entity’s eternal credit. A Vaisnava who knows this always tries to encourage others to serve.

If we compare the price tag of Krsna consciousness to the price tag of flickering sense gratification, we will realize that our austerity is insignificant. By our austerities we are able to break the cycle of birth and death and return to the spiritual world within one lifetime.

Whatever idea we may have of finding happiness separate from Krsna is doomed. We cannot find that happiness because it doesn’t exist.

A devotee who sees anyone tasting sense pleasure in this world knows that that person will eventually be due misery. He also knows that anyone who finds happiness in giving Krsna pleasure will eventually attain Krsna. There is no way to avoiding these two destinies.

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?

What does it take to turn a living entity toward Krsna? It requires divine grace. Divine grace is distributed by Krsna’s devotees. To distribute this divine grace, the devotees preach.
