Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

March 13

Krishna wants only your love. He does not care about anything else. Just do something for Him. Chant for His pleasure. Pray for His pleasure. Hear His pastimes for His pleasure. Do not do these things because you "have" to do it. Each day, just dedicate some time to do something for Krishna's pleasure. A little leaf, flower, or water, if offered with love and devotion, will be accepted by Him.

Collected Letters to Friends and disciples Vol 3, Pg 198

March 12

When you do something for Krishna's pleasure, Krishna reciprocates with that loving attitude of His devotee. What comes in return cannot be compared to anything else within this entire cosmic manifestion. It is the experience of love that Krishna has for each and every one of His parts and parcels. If we want to experience this genuine love, we simply must offer something to Krishna with love.

Collected Letters to Friends and disciples Vol 3, Pg 199

Difficulties are something that each and every devotee must contend with as they make progress in Krishna consciousness. Your difficulties are not an exception. But, as long as there is a spark of desire to overcome them with Krishna conscious solutions, there is always hope. My efforts to fan that spark will always be there.

Many devotees have left the apparent poverty of the former Soviet Union with the hopes of gaining financial security in the West, but the result is that once having gone to the West, in some cases, they may temporarily obtain a few more assets than what they had in in the CIS, but they lose their enthusiasm for bhakti.

We cannot force ourselves into Vrajalila. We must qualify ourselves for Vrajalila by hearing about the transcendental lilas of Vraja from the mouths of sadhus and by praying for the qualification to gain entrance.

In order to be able to understand Vrindavana, we must seek help from those who are absorbed in the mood of Vrindavana, especially by hearing those pastimes which are eternally manifest in Vrindavana.

Collected Letters to Friends and disciples Vol 3, Pg 187

March 7

Determination is the necessary price for progressing in spiritual life. Material solutions provide temporary relief, but, ultimately, they will always end in further suffering and entanglement. The intelligent person seeks solutions in Krishna consciousness. Krishna knows best how to fulfill our desires.

Collected Letters to Friends and disciples Vol 3, Pg 186-187

You cannot see a devotee by any external criteria like dress, hairstyle, or even language. You can only see a devotee or understand who is a devotee by how much he really thinks of Krishna and how is absorbed in Krishna consciousness.

Krishna consciousness is more than a physical culture or a sociological movement, it is the culture of absorption. The whole point of Krishna consciousness is to absorb our mind. Krishna consciousness is also called bhakti-yoga. It means that we absorb our mind in Krishna through the process of bhakti or loving devotion.

Chanting is the most important activity that we perform every day. For one who is sadhaka, or one who actually is engaged in practicing bhakti-yoga, chanting Hare Krishna every day is the most important.
