Purpose of Service

When we are physically strong, we engage in service. So that when we are not able to work, we will be able to remember Krishna, Prabhupada, our spiritual master and even our spiritual name in sub-consciousness.

The Vedic Literatures

The vedic literatures composed by the Mahamuni Vyasadeva are evidence of all spiritual existence. Only through these revealed scriptures can all conditioned souls attain knowledge.

People

Saintly persons, who are friends to all living entities, have a peaceful consciousness. They have controlled their senses and minds and they easily attain the path of liberation, the path back to Godhead. Being unfortunate and attached to the miserable material condition, a materialistic person cannot associate with them.

Vaishnava Aparadha

When we expose ourselves to severe vaisnava-aparadha, it is like pulling our devotional creeper out from the root. It doesn't get the nourishment then we systematically dry out, then we lose the taste for chanting, reading, deity worship, book distribution, what could be worse! We lose devotional service ultimately.

BACE

BACE is like a temple away from the temple and also at the same time, a home away from home.

Attitude

Our spiritual lives revolves around service and relationships, but attitude is even more important than just the external service we render.

Mentalities of Different People

People with different mentalities have strong inclinations (according to their mentality). If we try to make a brahmana into a sudra, or a person of sudra mentality into a brahmana, it won't work.
