Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

June 21

We can carry Krsna with us by constantly chanting His holy name. Krsna is nondifferent from His name. We must develop the qualities to chant it honestly and constantly. To do so, we should read Prabhupada’s books.

No matter who or where we are, we should celebrate Krsna consciousness with chanting, dancing, and prasadam, and we should share that celebration with others.

We can see how much people who contact a Vaisnava are willing to develop their love for Krsna. This is an internal change. A Vaisnava’s success is measured by how much he or she is able to bring about this internal change in others.

People tend to respect those who practice religion. But if we are actually interested in becoming free from the material world, we must serve a Vaisnava and help him in his preaching. We may still gain respect, wealth, or followers, but attaining these things will not be our purpose.

“Vaisnava” means servant of the Vaisnava. A Vaisnava always meditates on serving guru. Everything a Vaisnava does is intended as an act of service, and because a Vaisnava is always serving the guru’s mood, preaching becomes successful.

A devotee should never aspire to enjoy his position. Rather, he should think exclusively about giving pleasure to his own guru and to Krsna. Such an attitude will protect him from fall down.

The desire for fame and recognition is an anarthа. Anarthas obstruct our view of Krsna and His pure holy name, just as clouds block our ability to see the sun.
