March 9

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.

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.

The symptom of life is to be attached. The Vaisnavas are so kind that they are giving us what we should be attached to even before we realize it, even before we have the desire to want it. They are giving it even before we’ve asked for it.
