O son of Kunti, the nonpermanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed.
Bhagavad Gita 2.14,
The sankirtana devotees are very very dear to Krishna. Because you are doing the field work of book distribution, Krishna has immediately recognised them as true servants. Just like during war time, a farm boy or ordinary clerk who goes to fight for this country on the front immediately becomes a national hero for his sincere effort. So Krishna immediately recognises a preacher of Krishna consciousness who takes all risks t deliver his message.
The manifestation of unadulterated devotional service is exhibited when one’s mind is at once attracted to hearing the transcendental name and qualities of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is residing in everyone’s heart.
Srimad Bhagavatam 3.29.11-12,
The Bhagavad-gita can be consulted in all critical times, not only for solace from all kinds of mental agonies, but also for the way out of great entanglements which may embarrass one in some critical hour.
Srimad Bhagavatam 1.15.27,
One should not be idle but should be very enthusiastic about executing the regulative principles. Neglect of the regulative principles will destroy devotional service. In this Krishna consciousness movement there are four basic regulative principles, forbidding illicit sex, meat-eating, gambling and intoxication. A devotee must be very enthusiastic about following these principles. If he becomes slack in following any of them, his progress will certainly be checked. — The Nectar of instruction, Text 03.
Only way to control the mind, is to neglect the dictation of the mind & always Chant Holy Names of the Lord.
According to our purpose, Motivation & Sincerity Krishna reveals himself to us.
On this gross planet earth, there are airplanes run by machine, but on other planets the airplanes are run not by machine but by mantric hymns.
Distribution of books and magazine is our most important activity. Without books, our preaching has no solid basis.
Since one of His opulences is infinite beauty, all the Lord’s incarnations are very beautiful and are appreciated as such by devotees.
Srimad Bhagavatam 4.18.29,
