Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

September 24

Even if we are not fully devoted ourselves, if we associate with pure devotees, our hearts too will become gradually clean.

Krasnodar, June 1996

September 23

We cannot attract others to Krsna consciousness by an external show of devotion. Even if we try to behave like devotees, our imitation will not have the same effect. We have to actually become devotees.

Krasnodar, June 1996

September 22

The Supersoul in the heart fulfills the dictations of every living entity. If the living entity wants to forget the Lord, the Supersoul fulfills that desire. If the living entity wants to turn to Krsna, however, then Krsna will help the living entity from within the heart.

Krasnodar, June 1996

September 21

A devotee’s example is a very, very powerful principle. Those who see a devotee’s example have the potential of becoming attracted to Krsna. If we want to become effective preachers in Krsna consciousness, we must be empowered by the Lord’s potency. Otherwise, we cannot change others’ hearts.

Krasnodar, June 1996

September 20

If we are truly attracted to Krsna, we will be able to attract others; because Krsna is all attractive, those who are attracted to Him are also attractive.

Krasnodar, June 1996

September 19

Example is more powerful than precept. It is by example that we convince others how to behave.

Krasnodar,
June 1996

September 18

If we get the opportunity to engage in the Lord’s devotional service by the mercy and association of His pure devotees, then we can trust that the pure devotees will also instruct us on how to behave like devotees. The pure devotees will instruct us both through their words and their examples.

Krasnodar,
June 1996

September 17

A devotee never thinks himself to be advanced. In fact, he doesn’t even consider himself a devotee. A devotee is always striving to become a devotee, because he sees within himself his many shortcomings.

Krasnodar,
June 1996

September 16

One symptom of a genuinely humble soul is that he sees all living entities as potential servants of Krsna. Therefore he always tries to fan the spark of their Krsna consciousness. Doing so is an act of respect; a genuinely humble soul respects everyone.

Dnepropetrovsk,
June 1996

 

September 15

We must be very careful not to commit offenses if we do not wish to lose the association of devotees. There is nothing more dangerous in this world than being devoid of the association of devotees.

Dnepropetrovsk,
June 1996
