Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

September 10

As one looks at opulent food and thinks, “yes, let me enjoy”, so one can similarly look at Krsna with that same spirit of enjoyment, “oh, God, He is my order supplier and can give me happiness”. So it’s the same type of connection with it being temporary and not lasting. One can make a more permanent and solid connection with Krsna when one actually has unalloyed love for Krsna.

So if you don’t have faith in the statements of scriptures, in the words of the spiritual master, in acintya sakti, then you haven’t really understood it. Better forget it. That’s what Prabhupada said, forget about it, you are never going to get there.

It is only Krsna who can actually purify the heart from all reactions of sinful life. Therefore a Vaishnava, who gives Krsna, can also give one a means by which his heart can become pure because he is giving Krsna by his association and it is Krsna who is taking away all the reactions. That’s the only way how one can become clear from the reactions of a sinful life.

One receives duties from the spiritual master, scriptures and Vaishnava’s, which are from a higher plain of existence, beyond the mind which has the tendency to accept and reject on the basis of sense gratification. As long as we accept on the basis of sense gratification, how can we know that it is our duty. It is not possible. Therefore we have to get our duty from a higher state of existence, beyond the mind.
