Importance of Parikrama

Parikrama instills appreciation for devotional sentiments even within the heart of a neophyte devotee.Vraja Mandala Parikrama is a perfect test for one’s spiritual health.

Devotees

Just as those who are greedy see everything as a source of money-making and those who are lusty see everything as conducive to sex, the most perfect devotee sees Narayana [Krishna] everywhere.

Material Success is Not Sufficient

There is a Vedic axiom that we can judge a tree by the fruit it bears. If this is a valid measure, then three strong contemporary indicators reveal that our way of life is a failure: widespread suicide, drug use and mental illness. All these factors point to a similar conclusion: maybe material success is not sufficient on its own.

Struggling with Maya

Struggle with maya is like "A football match". You may be winning by 20-0 till the end wistle blows but at the last moment Maya becomes heavy and match ends with 20-21. You may be loosing by 0-20 till the end wistle blows but at the last moment Krishna's infallible mercy becomes heavy and the match ends with 21-20.

Character

1. A sadhu is known by his character, not by accomplishments.

2. In ISKCON, irrespective of one’s position, designation, achievements, we have to become an exemplary devotee like Jayananda Prabhu.
