Do not take this material world so seriously because it is always changing, what you take seriously is being some thing terrible today. Tomorrow it’s Going to Change.
In this age one simply has to chant the holy name of God to attain perfection in spiritual life.
Srimad Bhagavatam 3.21.7
When ever i get report of my book selling I feel strength. Even now in this weakened condition I have got strength from your report. You should know that in this work you have Krishna’s Blessings.
Vedanta means ultimate knowledge. Knowledge is never perfect unless one comes to the point of understanding Krishna. To remain in Krishna Consciousness is actual understanding of Vedanta.
Letter to Janardana — Los Angeles 21 January, 1968,
The control of the Lord is everywhere, and if the Lord is pleased, every part of nature will be pleased.
Srimad Bhagavatam 1.10.5,
There are so many dangers in life because the material world is a place of danger.
The spiritual master and Krishna are two parallel lines. The train, on two tracks, moves forward. The spiritual master and Krishna are like these two tracks, they must be served simultaneously. Krishna helps one to find bona fide spiritual master and bona fide spiritula Master helps one to understand Krishna. If one does not get bona fide spiritual master, then how he can ever understand Krishna? You cannot serve Krishna without spiritual master, or serve just spiritual master without serving Krishna. They must be served simultaneously. — Letter to Mahapurusha, 12th Feb, 1968.
The devotee who becomes helpless by the will of the Lord is more fortunate than those who are born in good families. The fallen devotee born in a good family may forget the lotus feet of the Lord because they are less fortunate, but the devotee who is put into forlorn condition is more fortunate because he swiftly returns to the lotus feet of the Lord thinking himself helpless all around. – Srimad Bhagavatam, 01.05.19.
To use mind in thinking of Krishna is as equivalent as to engage body in the service of Krishna.
If we have the proper attitude, we can resolve the specifics of any problem without much confusion. The real essence is to have the right attitude.
