Sometimes river flows very strong, sometimes it flows very small, but it makes no difference to the ocean because it is satisfied in itself with its own quantity of water. Similarly, when our heart is cleansed with spirituality, we find pleasure and ecstasy with our own selves that is so sweet, so wonderful and so satisfying, that the so-called pleasures of this world no longer have any values, no appeal at all.
Krishna is present fully in His holy name and this is realized by the humility and sincerity in our chanting.
It is not the light that is needed in this world but the warmth because we will die out of cold but not out of darkness.
If we want to attain the sea of our aspiration, we must persever in our goal and never be discourged by the inevitable obstacles that come in our path. All impediments are like rocks in the river of life. We should flow with them and never give up. With the Lord's mercy, there is always a way.
