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.
The Lord can be served simply by adoring Him and accepting Him.
Srimad Bhagavatam 2.9.36,
The currency notes, although paper, are issued by the government, they have full value. Similarly, this material world though temporary, but because it is an emanation from the Lord, it has its full value. The Vaishnava philosopher knows how to utilize it properly, whereas the Mayavadi philosopher fails to do so.
My friend, you are being washed away in material nature’s waves of time. Please try to understand that you are the eternal servant of the Lord. Then everything will stop and you will stop and you will be eternally happy.
You are where your mind is.
My dear brother, just tyr and examine this. Within the three worlds there is no one like Lord Caitanya or Lord Nityananda. Their merciful qualities are so great that upon hearing them even birds and beasts cry and stones melt.
