Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

September 4

We have so many thoughts in our minds, so many dreans of how to become happy. We become so bewildered. Even when our dreams are fulfilled, still there is something else. But when we chant Hare Krsna, Krsna appears, and we experience His presence in the name. Automatically the mind is controlled.

That is love - one who gives without expecting anything in return. That is the actual definition of love. If I expect something in return, it is not love, it is business.

Satisfaction comes from realizing our connection with the Supreme. When we make that connection within our hearts, then from within the heart one finds satisfaction. Then one can genuinely love, because love means giving without expecting anything in return.
