The human form of body is a most valuable boat, and the spiritual master is the captain, to guide the boat in plying across the ocean of nescience.
Without electricity Computer is dead. Similarly when the soul leaves the body, he is dead.
Actual joy is a product of the spiritual nature. It spontaneously manifests when the living entity begins to love God.
Every living entity, especially persons in the human race, must feel grateful for the benedictions offered by the grace of the Supreme Lord.
Srimad Bhagavatam 3.19.36,
“I Started this movement simply by chanting Hare Krishna Mantra. I chanted in New York in a place called Tompkins Square Park, and soon people began to come to me. In this way, the Krishna consciousness movement gradually developed.” — His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
There is no question of darkness where there is light and Krishna consciousness is light that dispels the darkness of material sense enjoyment.
Srila Prabhupada in his book Teaching of Lord Chaitanya
The essence of spiritual life is simply to use our free will properly.
Everyone has to bear the actions and reactions of time as long as one is within the conditions of the material world.
