There may rivalries and apparent competitions between servants in performing service, but in the Vaikuntha planets the service of another servant is appreciated not condemned. This is Vaikuntha competition. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 07.05.12.
Love means to serve and to serve means to please.
Death is not a big thing, what is important is God’s service.
What really impresses the hearts of people is not miraculous feats but genuine humility, integrity and a true sense of love achieved through service.
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.
Life without love is useless and poor they say, Appoint me in thy service, Oh Lord with Love as my pay.
