Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

December 12

One who is always trying to be engaged in Krsna’s service will accept whatever duties are given to him and he will always try the best he can. This is the most important consciousness that he has in execution of his duties, that he does it for Krsna and is not attached to the results.

When one acts in false ego, he can’t hear Krsna’s instructions and becomes lost.

It is possible to become free from personal motivations when one always thinks, that he has been given this duty - to give Krsna consciousness to others - and sees no qualifications within himself, he thinks: "still, somehow just let me try". That’s all.

When a devotee is so fully depended upon the Lord and is always engaged in rendering service to the Lord, He actually takes charge of the devotee’s departure from this world. He carries him across the ocean of repeated birth and death and accepts him into His eternal association in the spiritual world.

When a devotee very carefully practices vaidhi bhakti every day, a natural taste for devotional service begins to awaken. Every one of us is looking after some taste, but the taste for material things doesn’t produce any prominent lasting effect. Yet, that higher taste that we are looking for comes from practicing such bhakti.
