Material Desires

We should ask ourselves, am I the speaker? If you think I want some credit from speaking then you are not the speaker. You are dancing and chanting in front the deity, if you think of people to see, think of name, fame, adoration then you are not really chanting. This is not the example shown by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and His associates.

Deceiving Oneself

You cannot cheat pure devotees. You can only cheat yourself. This is not material life. Oh, I will be cunning! I will cheat them! This is spiritual life. You are cheating yourself. Sad-guru knows what is best for you. He has no interest of his own.

Staying Pure

 

1. Somebody asked Srila Prabhupada why so many are leaving? Prabhupada said,“You should be surprise if someone stays. It is not easy to stay because you have to stay pure.

2. Whatever you do, if purity is gone, character is gone, then everything is gone.

Ocean of Love

Check deep within your heart! There is an ocean of love for Krishna which you had locked since many lifetimes.

Love of Krishna

Prabhupada says that you have to feel separation from Krishna. Bhakti Siddhanta Thakur says, “If father has to teach the son how to love father-mother, this will be too much. He should know”. We should know. Is Krishna not our father? We should ask ourselves. Except Krishna and acharyas, no one is our real well – wisher. We have to have some realisation.

Real Business

Our business is to develop attachment to Krishna. This so called, I distributed this many books, I become this, is all temporary. Actually a devotee wants to become a humble servant of Krishna, pure devotee. That’s all.

Designations

Krishna doesn’t see, are you a brahmacari, Grihastha, Vanaprastha or X,Y,Z, He sees how much you are attached to Him.

Attraction to Krishna

After doing one’s dharma, whatever it may be, if he does not develop love of Godhead, attraction to Krishna’s name, beauty, pastimes, he will understand whatever he got is nothing but only waste of labour, useless
