Crying for the Lord

One should learn how to cry for the Lord.  One should learn this small technique, and he should be very eager and actually cry to become engaged in some particular type of service.  This is called ‘laulyam’, and such tears are the price for the highest perfection.   If one develops this ‘laulyam’, or excessive eagerness for meeting and serving the Lord in a particular way, that is the price to enter into the kingdom of God.

Temple

Temple means people should come, people should learn the science of God. Temple should not be a business. Temple means spiritual educational shelter.  People should come and learn what is spiritual life, what is God, what is my relationship with God.

Training

To train a new man is like training a wild animal to be a pet.  Just like the tiger is trained in the circus and later on they are dancing to the tune of the master.  So the point being stressed is training.  A preacher should be traines to be always tolerant.

Vaishnavas

When a touchstone touches iron, it turns the iron to gold.  Parvata Muni called Narada Muni a touchstone because by his touch the hunter, who was the lowest among men, became an elevated and perfect Vaisnava.  Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura said that the position of a Vaisnava can be tested by seeing how good a touchstone he is,  that is, by seeing how many Vaisnavas he has made during his life.  A Vaisnava should be a touchstone so that he can convert others to Vaisnavism by his preaching, even though people may be fallen like the hunter.
