Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

July 13

If we know what pleases the Lord and how to execute it, then we don’t have to worry about our personal satisfaction. We don’t have to ask for liberation or any other perfection, because the perfectional stage of life has already been achieved by engaging in activities that satisfy Krishna.

Lectures from a disciple, Vol 1, p. 213, Kishinyov, June 1996
 

July 9

Those who are simply seeking liberation have not developed their attraction to hearing and chanting about Krishna. Because their concept of liberation is not fully satisfying to the self, they are unable to remain in a liberated position. A devotee knows that real liberation is achieved by constant hearing and chanting. This is why devotees don’t care about liberation—they are simply interested in the wonders of Krishna-katha.

A sadhu doesn’t have to make any other endeavor to attain devotional service. He simply concentrates on revealing the secret of Krishna consciousness to others and knows that he is guaranteed to develop devotion for Krishna.

A sadhu is one who wants to reveal the confidential topics about the Lord. Although confidential topics are difficult to understand, a sadhu wants to share details of Krishna’s nature with others.
