Krishna is compared to sunshine and maya is compared to darkness. Wherever there is sunshine, there cannot be darkness. As soon as one takes to Krishna consciousness, the darkness of illusion (the influence of the external energy) will immediately vanish.
One should understand Krishna in truth and this one can do only by serving a pure devotee. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 07.09.24.
Teach them Krishna Conscious Art at early age, so they may advance in devotional Service.
In the transcendental loving service of the Lord, it does not matter whether we are working, Cooking, Painting, Writing, Chanting, or whatever; they are all the same. There are no such distinctions of higher and lower on the transcendental platform. The important thing is that we are engaging our time and energy in the service of the Lord. After all, we are so tiny, what can we do? Krishna sees simply that this time is being spent in His Service. — Letter to Kiranamayi, 25th Feb, 1968.
