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.
When one’s heart is purified by the association of devotees and by the avoidance of the offenses committed while chanting and worshiping the Lord, the transcendental name, form and activities of the Lord are revealed by the Lord.
When love increases for the holy name of Lord Krishna, then automatically our hesitation for chanting and dancing ends. As chanting the holy name and dancing on the holy name are not different from Krishna.
We must become strongly established in the holy name. Naam Sankirtana is the only thing which goes back with us and it is possible till the end of our last breath.
The study of Bhagavad Gita is for bhagvad darshan. The darshan that we get of the Lord is the essence of Bhagavad Gita.
When one’s mind is purified by the recitation of Bhagvad Gita, He identifies Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu as Krishna himself.
Association with the devotees of Lord Krishna leads to our association with Lord Krishna.
If one renders even a small amount of sincere devotional service, Krishna becomes obliged to elevate such a person and what to speak of one whose entire life and soul has been dedicated to Krishna's service.
When we become advanced, we recognize the service of other devotees and we develop our appreciation for them and it manifests in the form of friendship.
