Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

March 23

Wherever you are or wherever you might decide to go, however, please be mindful that this does seem just like the authorities on the subject are saying-- a global pandemic. Please take all the necessary precautions as they are being described almost everywhere by the health experts, maintain body and soul, chant Krsna's names, read Srila Prabhupada's books, and be as prepared as you can be to "weather the storm."

Just encourage everyone you may come in contact with to make use of the current crisis by either staying where they are or, if their situation is necessary, by immediately going (if that's even possible) to the place where (as much as their situation allows) they can sit down and absorb their minds in Srila Prabhupada's books. Panic will not do anyone any good. Krsna is providing a situation to give His devotees an increased opportunity to remember Him.

...it's all in Krsna's hands. We are currently living in a state of almost total uncertainty. But one thing for sure is that Krsna will always protect His devotees.

We can express our love for Krsna’s devotees by giving gifts, accepting gifts, revealing our mind in confidence, inquiring confidentially, giving prasada, and accepting prasada. These six exchanges are ways that one devotee expresses his or her love to another. Because these loving exchanges are so attractive, Krsna accepts such service to His devotees to be as good as service to Him. That is Krsna’s kindness. That is Krsna’s love.

If we ever want to participate in the Lord's pastimes and if we want to be in the association of the Lord, then we must obtain the mercy of a devotee of the Lord. We can never obtain devotional service of the Lord without obtaining the mercy of Krsna's devotees.

If we want to learn about and understand devotional service, then we must obtain the mercy of a devotee of the Lord. Otherwise devotional service will always remain a great mystery.

There are a lot of stories. Everybody has stories, I mean from back then. It was a struggle but Prabhupada was able to impact his presence in the hearts of his disciples in a very amazing way. Because he was the only guru. His presence was everywhere. And his books were our life lines.

It seems that every time I went through difficulties, I took shelter in Prabhupada’s words. I often give an example about testing faith, the example of ice-skating. You have to test the ice to make sure it still holds you. When I took shelter in Prabhupada’s... either his example, or his instructions, or something to hold on to, reciprocation was there. So, how can you not have faith?

Lord Caitanya by His perfect example of complete renunciation, vairagya vidya nija bhakti yoga, taught the way everyone can become attached to the lotus feet of the Lord, whatever is his position. He taught by His example how to achieve renunciation and how to become detached from anything that doesn't foster Krsna consciousness. How did He do this? Because He gave the higher taste.
