Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

March 21, 2010

We are chanting Hare Krsna. Why? To chant Hare Krsna. Why? Because  our perfection is to chant Hare Krsna. Kirtaniya sada hari. Perfection is to always be absorbed in chanting the holy names of the Lord. Therefore the means and the end are the same.

At every step of our life we should never think that success is dependent upon us. All success, including our destination at the end of this life, ultimately depends upon Krsna.

It is not that easy to always have Krsna in the mind. We have explained so many times that first Krsna has to agree to appear. We can’t demand anything from Krsna. We can’t even demand that He appears in our mind. If He doesn’t want to enter into our mind - that’s His choice. We have to attract Him.

Rightful inheritance means that if one has an inheritance left behind from his parents, the only thing one has to do in order to get what rightfully belongs to him is to live. That’s all. It’s rightfully his. Just live and one will get it. So in the same way a devotee who tolerates all kinds of adverse conditions, who continues to engage in Krsna’s service and continues to glorify Krsna receives his inheritance… [mukti-pade sa daya-bhak]. All he has to do is to live and he will get it.

Those, who are fully engaged in serving Krsna are always expanding Krsna's glories. Expanding Krsna's glories also means expanding Krsnas service. Therefore by associating with those who expand Krsna's service, we become engaged in Krsna's service. We can directly perceive how they are fully engaged in Krsnas service by becoming their servants.

So we should understand that if we take shelter at the lotus feet of a devotee who is cent percent surrendered to the service of the Lord, then he will simply take that attachment and focus it on the lotus feet of the Lord. Therefore both must be worshiped side by side.

So whatever duty one performs, one must learn how to see its relationship with Krsna. One must see that duty as coming from Krsna and must stick to that duty for one's own purification.

These books are like places of pilgrimage for swans. They are only for persons who have some attraction for the spiritual realm. But the most wonderful thing about these books is that even if somebody doesn’t have any attraction, if they get one eleventh of the moment of association with Srila Prabhupada, that attraction can be awakened. That is the great beauty of these books. Although they are made for swan-like persons, by associating with these books even the ugliest crows can become swans.
