Anyone whose work is not meant to elevate him to religious life, anyone whose religious ritualistic performances do not raise him to renunciation and anyone situated in renunciation that does not lead him to devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead must be considered dead, although he is breathing. – Srimad Bhagavatam, 03.23.56.
One does not need great wealth, education or opulence to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead. If one is fully absorbed in love and ecstasy, he needs to offer only a flower and a little water.
Chanting the Hare Krishna mahamantra, vanquishes all the effects of sinful activities.
