For a devotee death is not the end but just the beginning. Beginning of entrance into a realm of eternity.
We get suffering in life so that we become sober and listen to God’s message.
The perfection of human existence is to die to live. To die to all material connections and designations and to perform our duties in the spirit of being servants of God.
We do not know about the future. The past is dead. However to prepare for our future and learn lessons from the past, we have to be very keenly aware of the present.
Every breath we take, we are one breath closer to death.
The reversals experienced in life are actually the opportunities which could impel us to sincerely, with all humility, take shelter of the Supreme Lord.
No matter how much we fight and pray to control our senses and lead a moral life, our envy, greed and lust will keep coming back, unless the holy name of the Lord actually goes right into our heart.
Death is like a storm which will sink everything in the river of time (the boat is the human body).
In the heart that harbors the weed of selfish greed, the flower of love cannot survive.
Love is a state of complete, uninhibited, unconditional giving away of every aspect of our very existence for the pleasure of the object of our love, both within and without.
