Devotees

Persons who smell the aroma of Lord Krishna's lotus feet, carried by the air of Vedic sound through the holes of the ears, accepts Krishna's devotional service. The Lord is never separated from them.

Deliverance of Conditioned Souls

A pure devotee of the Supreme Personality of Godhead is always thinking of how fallen, conditioned souls can be delivered. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, influenced by the devotees' attempt to deliver fallen souls, enlightens the people in general from within by His causeless mercy.

People

It is very much regrettable that unfortunate people do not discuss the description of the Vaikuntha [spiritual] planets but engage in topics that are unworthy to hear and bewilder one's intelligence. Those who give up the topics of Vaikuntha and talk of the material world are thrown into the darkest region of ignorance.

Material Progress

Due to so-called improvements in material opulence, people have entirely given up the path of realization. Practically no one is interested in God, one's relationship with God or how one should act. Modern men have altogether forgotten such questions because they are mad.

Devotees

A devotee is the friend not only of human society but of all living entities, for he sees all living entities as sons of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He does not claim himself to be the only son of God and allow all others to be killed, thinking that they have no soul. This kind of philosophy is never advocated by a pure devotee of the Lord.

Purification

By one's engaging in the processes of demigod worship, austerities, breath control, compassion, bathing in holy places, strict vows, charity, and chanting of various mantras, one's mind cannot attain the same absolute purification as that achieved when the unlimited Personality of Godhead appears within one's heart.

Wealth

To keep Lakshmi, or the riches of the lord, without the service of the lord is always dangerous, for then Lakshmi becomes illusory energy. With Lord Visnu, however, Lakshmi is the spiritual energy.
