Without being self-controlled, without being disciplined and without being fully obedient, no one can become successful in following the instruction of the spiritual master and without doing so, no one is able to go back to Godhead. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 01.05.24.
The relationship of a disciple with his spiritual master is as good as his relationship with the Supreme Lord. A Spiritual master always represents himself as the humblest servitor of the humblest servitor of the Personality of Godhead, but the disciple must look upon him as the manifested representation of Godhead. — Sri Caitanya Caritamrita, Adi Lila, 01.45.
If we are serious & sincere devotees, the Lord will give us the intelligence to offer prayers properly.
If we are not striving to improve and go forward, the current of this world will force us to go backward…like swimming upstream in a river.
One should learn how to associate with the devotees of the Lord by gathering with them to chant the glories of the Lord. This process is most purifying. As devotees thus develop their loving friendship, they feel mutual happiness and satisfaction and by thus encouraging one another they are able to give up material sense grantification, which is the cause of all suffering. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 11.03.30.
The Supersoul, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is the source of light.
Bhagavad Gita 13.18,
When you will project your consciousness and senses to Krishna the you become joyful, free from bodily conceptions and pains.
This world is completely overwhelmed by materail problems. The only solution is Krishna Consciousness.
You just accept the holy name, then Nityananda Prabhu will be responsible for taking you across this material world.
Always remember why you have joined ashrama or ISKCON. The real purpose of doing so is to be engaged in devotional service.
