Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

May 2

We should always overlook the shortcomings of others and simply see the desire that is there in their hearts to do something for Krsna. And we should be willing to accept whatever offering somebody makes, no matter how small - just like Krsna, who considers whatever benedictions He gives to be very insignificant in comparison with even a very small offering from the hand of His devotee.

Those who are not on a platform on which they can always speak about Krsna but have a desire to always speak about Krsna may restrict themselves from speaking about others out of fear of suffering. And generally that's good. At least they are not speaking unnecessarily about others and causing disturbance to others, but the motivation of not wanting to suffer is not completely pure. When a devotee actually has awakened his spontaneous attraction to always speak about Krsna, he doesn't have to worry about speaking critically or unnecessarily about others.

What is difficult is to find it in ourselves. Generally, what disturbs us most is the same fault that we have but don't want to confront in ourselves. It is a lot easier to point it out in someone else. So, if I can't be compassionate, better to hold my tongue. If it is really something that is detrimental for that Vaisnava, I can tell it to someone who can be compassionate, and go back and look into my own heart.

It is a very important quality of a Vaisnava to be compassionate with others. And one of the symptoms of this compassion is that a devotee cannot tolerate seeing others suffer.

I pray that all of you can increase your endeavors to follow this method that Srila Prabhupada has given to us. This will be very pleasing to Srila Prabhupada and our previous acaryas and ultimately it will very much satisfy the Lord, which is the perfection of everything that we do.

The acarya gives the suitable method for crossing the ocean of nescience by accepting the boat of the Lord's lotus feet, and if this method is strictly followed, the followers will ultimately reach the destination, by the grace of the Lord.

If Prabhupada is pleased by your service then certainly you will be following that method that he has left behind for you to cross this ocean of material existence. He has come to make the process of surrender easy. It's not very complicated. It's not very difficult. Just simply try to please him. That is all. In everything that we do, if we simply try to please him, then devotional service becomes easy. What makes it difficult is if we forget that.

Srila Prabhupada left behind his books for the benefit of future generations to learn the process of devotional service as well as the means for expanding this same method for the benefit of others, by distributing those books.

There's food for the body and there's food for the soul. Every living being needs to be spiritually nourished by chanting the Holy Name of the Lord and by endeavoring to chant without offenses.
