Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

February 14

The master naturally feels responsible for the behavior of his servant. He's therefore not happy if his servants behave well only in his presence. There must also be good behavior in his absence. He needs to know how you associate with each other, appreciate each other, overlook the faults of each other and see the good qualities in each other. He's concerned that you can come together to glorify the Lord despite all obstacles, in spite of all the extra baggage (anarthas) we carry with us into this movement.

One who takes shelter in the process of hearing, always lends his ear in submissive inquiry to the transcendental topics which are flowing from the mouths of Vaisnavas. The result is that one forgets about the necessities of life and becomes free from illusion, fear and lamentation. This is real shelter.

The mentality that Lord Nityananda has when He appears in this world is that He is the servant of the Supreme Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He serves Lord Caitanya as His guru, He serves Lord Caitanya as His friend, and He serves Lord Caitanya as His servant, just as Lord Balarama played with Lord Krsna in these three different moods in Vraja.

The real test of being sheltered, genuinely sheltered, is when one feels some happiness. Even in the midst of suffering there is always hope and that hope makes one happy.
