Why is appreciation so powerful? – It is an expression of love for Krishna.
Sankirtana will always be appreciated, because it is the special blessings of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu on the people of this fallen age of Kali.
Letter to Achyutananda, 1975.
Life is full of meaning and opportunities for growth. When we are mindful of the beauty and accomplishments of the past, even when the present or future is not exactly what we would like it to be, we will not be disturbed. We will still be excited about the past and appreciative for the present. In this way, the future will be even more auspicious because we create our futures by how we have dealt with the past and how we are dealing with the present.
Those who are advancing in Krishna consciousness can appreciate how wonderful is this gift that Srila Prabhupada has given us.

Appreciation is very often the beginning of our spiritual life & it comes through connection with a devotee.
What appears to be a curse can be a blessing if we simply appreciate the inner essence of the possibility of how to connect to God in that situation.
