The Personality of Godhead, after hearing the elephant’s plea, felt that he was in great distress. Thus at once the Lord appeared there on the Garuda, with the chakra He cut to pieces the mouth of the crocodile to save the elephant and He delivered the elephant by lifting him by his trunk.

Even a slight amount of sincere devotional service can give one complete perfection. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 07.06.01
This material world is actually meant for misery, just as a prison house is meant for punishment.
The more competent the individual is, the more difficult is the test.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna is the only enjoyer. Everyone and everything else is the object of his enjoyment.
If we are not striving to improve and go forward, the current of this world will force us to go backward…like swimming upstream in a river.
