Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

September 19

One who became a brahmacari because householder life is too troublesome is not a brahmacari. Yet one who became a brachmacari because he likes to study sastra, to chant and hear in the association of devotees, to preach Krsna consciousness, to rise early in the morning and to engage in sadhana in the association of devotees, this is brahmacari life. One who likes to live simply and doesn’t like to accumulate things.

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.
