Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

December 1

Now apply what you've learned as a brahmacari, especially about the importance of sadhana, and mold your household life in such a way that your sadhana does not suffer. Every day there must be some chanting and hearing. This is most important for householders.

Bhakti is the only process that can uproot the desires for sinful activity from the heart. Bhakti is so powerful because it is the most superior activity. No other process is complete until we take shelter at Krishna’s lotus feet.

The fact that Srila Prabhupada was able to make the subject matter of bhakti so easily accessible to almost anyone is proof that he was invested with Krishna-shakti. Krishna-shakti vina nahe tare pravartana: Unless one is invested with Krishna-shakti, he cannot deliver the Lord’s name to others and convince them to dedicate their lives to the chanting.
(Lecture- Srila Prabhupada's Vyasa Puja, Alma-ata 1995)

If we strictly follow our spiritual master's order, we can overcome all the imperfections that come with having accepted a material body.

Prabhupada always used to emphasize that if you preach, everything else will come. In other words, if you are giving Krsna to others, if you are actually concerned about their spiritual welfare and want to see them advance in spiritual life, you do not have to worry because when you give Krsna to others, reciprocation naturally takes place.

A Vaisnava is always thinking of how to relieve the suffering of others. He is never satisfied to simply become comfortable himself. This preaching spirit must never stop. Always trying to give Krsna to everyone should be our primary motivation in all our efforts.
