Yukta Vairagya

Yukta Vairagya – dovetailing the material propensity for higher purpose. So that way, we get the ultimate spiritual realization and the same time we are surviving in this material world. Lord Caitanya didn't say to do 'markat-vairagya'. Markat-vairagya means monkey renunciation, looking very renounced but actually very attached. Rather, do your material duties very responsibly and attached to Krishna – that is yukta-vairagya.

Mercy of Lord Gaura-Nitai

Once Srila Prabhupada was teaching, how to appreciate the mercy of Lord Gaura Nitai. The mercy is so great that even the rocks melt, even the birds and the animals they crying in separation. After hearing all the philosophy and after everything is explained, of course one can theoretically understand, but still, to really understand, what is love of Krishna? One has to taste it. One can explain what is mango? its, Vitamin-C content, fat content, protein content, carbohydrate content, this vitamin, that vitamin, this fibre, this type of skin, this thickness of skin, this colour, you can get all the details but even you can say this much sugar content this everything, but still it doesn't tell you how it taste like? If you taste it, then you will get another level of understanding what it the mango. What is devotional service has been explained by Rupa Goswami here in Caitanya Caritamrita, but to really understand we need to taste it, even a drop of it and that is possible only by the mercy of Gaura-Nitai because they are so much absorbed  in love of Krishna.

Vaishnava Aparadha

When we expose ourselves to severe vaisnava-aparadha, it is like pulling our devotional creeper out from the root. It doesn't get the nourishment then we systematically dry out, then we lose the taste for chanting, reading, deity worship, book distribution, what could be worse! We lose devotional service ultimately.

Following Marriage Vows

Krishna will be very pleased, if you follow your vows for Him. We hope that people will take it very seriously, when they make this marriage vows, "That's what I am doing for Krishna." There is a pastime in Padma-purana were someone was following their marriage vows and Krishna came and took them all Back to Godhead, because they followed for Krishna.
