The fish is never free from anxiety, since big fish are always eager to eat the small fish. All living entities are eaten by bigger living entities. This is the way of material nature.
The Lord is harder than the thunderbolt for the wrongdoer and softer than the rose for the faithful.
Srimad Bhagavatam 3.3.13,
Lakshmi, the goddess of fortune, is called chanchal. Use it in worship of Lord Krishna.
Indulgence in animal killing for the taste of the tongue is the grossest kind of ignorance.
Prabhupada is showing us the way to return to the spiritual world. We just have to follow His instructions. Then we will reach our destination.
If we take shelter of the lotus feet of the spiritual master, we can become free from illusion, fear and distress. If we wholeheartedly beg for his mercy without any deceit then the spiritual master bestows all auspiciousness upon us.
If we chant the holy name of the Lord seriously we can see vrindavan within our heart, wherever we are.
