Application of humility is service.
One word Definition of Krishna Consciousness is Absorption.
To be in association of those aspiring to love GOD is the ultimate gift of GOD.
The essence of each religion is to transform our consciousness to reestablish our relationship with Lord.
Devotee means “mad citta mad-gata- prana”.‘mad gata’ means Krishna-gata. He cannot live without Krishna! If I don’t chant my 16 rounds in the morning, don’t listen Hari-katha, whole day I feel like missing something.
Somebody asked Srila Prabhupada how can I know I am becoming pure. Prabhupada replied, “Very easy. Are you becoming lusty while seeing some sense object? Who can say he is not lusty? If we are honest, then we have hope.
1. If you find faults with others, You are digging your own Grave of spiritual life.
2. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu becomes very pleased with somebody who doesn’t find fault with devotees and chants Hare Krishna. But if you find fault, then no one knows what your future holds.
Simply sitting in mouse holes and criticizing others will not work. There are many things which are making so much sound like radios, televisions. All should be utilized for preaching purpose.
Srila Prabhupada told his western disciples, “you have 3 main defects –
1. You are very restless. You change everything
2. You are not much afraid of maya
3. You allow too much free mixing between opposite genders.”
Acharyas said, “Don’t change what has been taught to you. If you change, then everything will be finished”.
