Always remember Krishna who is your dear most friend and always serve Him just to please Him and He will give you all intelligence how to be a first class devotee.
Shravanam, Kirtanam, Smaranam. Kirtaniya sada hari. Constantly remember. So, at the time of death, we will be able to glorify the Lord.
Sravanam, or hearing, is the first step in acquiring transcendental knowledge. One should not give aural reception to unauthorized persons, but should approach the proper person, as recommended in Bhagavad Gita.
By glorifying the Lord, we can remain in His association.
The only purpose is to remember the Lord at the end of life. Only one purpose, “ante narayana smriti”.
The goal of all activities is, ‘ante narayana smriti’.
For a person who is suffering in the fire of countless miseries and who desires to cross the insurmountable ocean of material existence, there is no suitable boat except that of cultivating devotion to the transcendental taste for the narrations of the Supreme Personality of Godhead’s pastimes.
By hearing about and glorifying the Lord, all a person’s activities become molded into spiritual activities and thus all conceptions of material miseries become completely vanquished.
As soon as a devotee can chant the holy name and glories of the Supreme Lord, he certainly comes to the liberated position. Attachment for glorifying the Lord by hearing and chanting the holy name and activities of the Lord (Sravanam Kirtanam Visnoh) certainly brings one to the position where material contamination is absent.
Krishna is within your heart. If you kindly continue to hear about Him, as you are doing, then Krishna will be very much pleased. “Oh, this person is now interested in me” because nobody is interested in Krishna, so Krishna is also silent to them. However, as soon as you become interested, Krishna becomes very active. “Oh, he is trying to do something. I shall help him.”
