Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

August 28

So this svarupa shakti, the Lords internal potency, is coming from the Lord and manifests in the Holy Name and in the hearts of Vaishnava’s. Therefore, if we can serve Vaishnava’s we can actually become proper recipients for this svarupa shakti to enter into our hearts. Then we get nourishment, strength, knowledge and experience some bliss. This is the most blissful engagement and there is nothing more satisfying to the self then to serve the Supreme Lord and to serve the Vaishnava’s.

So the substance should be there first and then the form will follow. And the substance is simply wanting to see others advancing in Krsna consciousness, assisting the spiritual master in taking care of devotees and in helping devotees increase their faith in the process of Krsna consciousness and in the Holy Names of the Lord.
