Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

May 14

To be an effective servant of a vaishnava means that one has to assist him in his mission. This mission, which is given by all of Srila Prabhupada's disciples, is to spread Krsna consciousness in the same way that Srila Prabhupada gave it to us. And to be an effective instrument in spreading Krsna consciousness, we have to be able to appreciate the good qualities in others.

One cannot be happy as long as he endeavors for happiness. As soon as he begins his endeavors for happiness, immediately the conditions for distress begin. This is a fruit of duality. If we don’t have Krsna consciousness, then all we have is duality and it is hell.

Vaisnavas are very pleased when a submissive and humble attitude is manifest in the heart. And when they see such a humble and submissive attitude, they will then pour their blessings upon you. And when they pour these blessings, service will come and service awakens deep within the heart. When this service attitude is awakened, then the Lord inspires from within on how to serve nicely. Everything will happen within the heart, but first, the heart needs to be cleansed.
