When one's mind is attached to Krishna, one can fulfill the mission of life in one human birth. If one misses this opportunity, one does not know where he is going, how long he will remain in the cycle of birth and death and when he will achieve the human form of life and the chance to return home, back to Godhead. The most intelligent person, therefore, uses every moment of his life to render loving service to the Lord.
Our skills can be applied to serve Krishna.
You cannot artificially stop the functioning of the senses but if you engage the senses in the service of the Lord, to please the Lord, then you will become very happy.
We get purified when we take anxiety for God’s service.
Do your best to serve Krishna and He will give you required intelligence to cope with disturbing situations.
One should try to serve the Supreme Personality of Godhead by fully surrendering at His lotus feet. If one engages for the service of the Lord whatever money one has honestly earned, that is spiritual service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the spiritual master and the Vaishnavas.
