Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

May 7

There are necessities for maintaining life in this body: food, clothing, shelter. But Krsna explains in Bhagavad-gita that life continues to exist beyond the body. So how can food, shelter and clothing be necessities of life? They are necessities of maintaining life in the body. But life has its own necessities.

What are the symptoms of those who are not envious of Krsna? The symptoms of those who are non-envious of Krsna are their minds, thoughts, words, activities... Everything is always absorbed in Krsna.

A devotee is somebody who says, “I don’t want anything from You. I want to be with You and to serve You because of who You are, not because of what You have or what I can get from You.”

An intelligent person who understands the root cause of suffering in this world tries to cure the diseases at the root. Srila Prabhupada used to give the example that if the physical body is afflicted by an infection or boil, one can blow on the boil to try to temporarily mitigate the pain. But an expert physician knows that rather than to treat the symptom, one should go to the source of the problem. Therefore, he understands that there is a need to purify the blood.

There is a verse ‘golokera prema dana harinama sankirtana’ which means that the Hare Krsna mantra is imported from the spiritual world. It’s not a sound vibration of this world. The sound vibrations of this world are simply names of different forms of this world and the name is different from the substance.

Fear comes because we don’t know what lies in the future. But for one who is situated in transcendental consciousness or, as explained in Bhagavad-Gita, one who is not connected to the Supreme can have neither transcendental intelligence nor controlled mind without which can be no peace. How can there be happiness without peace!

If we are not aspiring for Krsna’s lotus feet, we’ll find many other topics to hear about. But those who are aspiring for Krsna’s lotus feet will see that these topics will gradually bring us to Krsna’s lotus feet.
