Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

April 27

We should be very eager to obtain the darshan of the Lord. Not that we should be so eager to see Him, but we should open up and purify our hearts in such a way that He becomes very eager to see us. He will come and very kindly distribute that mercy to everyone who opens their hearts in sincere prayer and chanting the holy names of the Lord. We should pray to serve the Lord and to please Him. Not only by getting the opportunity to taste the sweet name, but eagerly being given the opportunity to distribute it for the welfare of everyone. This is real service to the holy name.

One should follow in the footsteps of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and engage constantly in chanting His names. Lord Caitanya came to teach by His example. By His example, He showed that he was always relishing the chanting of the holy names of the Lord. By relishing it, He was making the sweet taste of Krsna's name available to others.

The happiness derived from devotional service is superior to the other forms of happiness. A devotee can accept the distress of this material world as happiness when he receives the causeless mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

The devotee who has transcended the world of dualities knows that both the happiness and distress of this world are both miserable conditions of life. He wants nothing to do with the happiness and distress of the material world.

Every day we must regularly hear. This is our regulative principle of bhakti yoga.

Sometimes Krsna, in order to keep His garden flourishing, also has to weed his garden. In other words, sometimes if we see devotees leaving, it could also be that Krsna is weeding His garden. We should therefore all try to become valuable flowers in Krsna's garden. Don't behave in a way that will cause people to have a wrong impression of our movement and a wrong impression of it's leaders. Take up Srila Prabhupada's mission and learn how to give yourself by helping others in their Krsna consciousness.

I'm not going to be around forever and neither are my godbrothers and godsisters going to be around forever. What hope will we have to see Srila Prabhupada's mission go on for 10,000 years if we can't leave this appreciation for each other behind? There are certainly signs of expansion in our movement. So many new people are coming. It's wonderful to see. But I also think about how these new people will become old devotees and will be able to stay in the association of devotees.

It's not that association is available only when a spiritual master comes for a visit. If I can leave behind something that will help devotees appreciate each other, I feel that's an important contribution because that will give strength to our movement and will give our movement a future.

As soon as you think, “I have love... I’m doing enough and I have enough mercy,” you don’t get it. Mercy floods by humility. Then you become qualified for mercy.

The mercy is that you’ve been given an opportunity to do something else besides serve your mind, your senses, and your body. That’s mercy. Without the mercy of the spiritual master one can’t get mercy of Krishna.
