Please know that the holy name contains everything. The Lord’s holy name is our life. We are meant to perform our devotional service in relation to the holy name. All our progress is gauged against our relationship with the holy name.

Chanting is the only way to become free of offenses. We should not think that because we are offensive, we would be better off not chanting at all. There is no way to become free of offenses except to chant with the proper attitude.

What could possibly be a more important engagement in Sri Dhama Mayapura than to immerse ourselves in nama sankirtan—the means by which we increase our hankering for tasting the unlimited nectar of the pure holy name? I therefore pray that all of you will taste this nectar during this year's festival in Mayapura and that you will carry this nectar back to your respective preaching fields to share it with others. That is what our Krishna consciousness movement is all about.

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

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.

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.
