    My heart is really dancing in real ecstasy to read that you are all managing Krsna temple programme in Dhotis and tilaks etc. Please always try to be very punctual and serious in conducting the whole programme. With all these activities genuinely conducted my long cherished dreams seem to take definite shape.

    hen the plant of devotional service sprouts up from the seed of devotion, it begins to grow freely. When it is full grown, it surpasses the length and breadth of this universe and enters into the transcendental atmosphere, where everything is bathed in the effulgence of the brahmajyoti.

    Living in a society surrounded by material pleasures, a thought came on me "Am I really Krishna conscious?" It is said that the happiness of material enjoyment generally drags one to the lowest grade of life, namely degradation to animal life, because of unrestricted sense enjoyment.

    Govinda means  "A Person Who gives pleasure to the senses" - Krishna. And now we see hat Arjuna's senses are numb. So Govinda  (the giver of pleasure to senses) is going to enliven the senses of Arjuna.

    One should always remember that one'a activities and desires are not independent. In other words, the devotee should feel completely dependent on Krsna and thus he should act and think as Krsna desires.

    You can serve by using your intelligence. I went through your notes on B.G verses. You have nearly covered all important points. At the moment, please concentrate on your studies. But soon Sri Krsna will give you sufficient time to update your notes, by supplementing with B.G verses you have referred to and relevant verses and stories from S.B regarding the same subject.

    When Bhishma and the others on the side of Duryodhana blew their respective conchshells,there was no heart-breaking on the part of the Pandavas. Such occurences are not mentioned,but in this particular verse. It is mentioned that the hearts of the sons of Dharashtra were shattered by the sounds vibrated by the Pandavas' party.This is due to the Pandavas and their confidence in Lord Krishna .One who takes shelter of the Supreme Lord has nothing to fear,even in the midst of greatest calamity.

    My dear Lord, O Supreme Personality of Godhead, because of my association with material desires, one after another, I was gradually falling into a blind well full of snakes, following the general populace. But your servant Narada Muni kindly accepted me as his disciple and instructed me how to achieve this transcendental position. Therefore, my first duty is to serve him. How could I leave his service?

    Gurudev remarked in Vrndavana that the true test of whether we have ingested the true purports of Srila Prabhupada in Srimad Bhagavatam is how we apply the verses and their purports to our daily lives - especially in moments of reversals, adversities and difficulties.

    Why Arjuna is a Fit Person to Receive Self Knowledge

    Karthik
    To my limited understanding a person who is soft hearted is compassionate and whenever someone tries to hurt him he forgives that person. And he also forgets it. So his heart is free. As Maharaj used to say that our heart must be vacant to receive self knowledge. So Arjuna's heart is free(of ill-feelings like envy, hatred etc).That is why he is fit to receive self knowledge.

    It is stated herein that the governmental power of society in the Kali-yuga will be passed over to the uncultured, godless laborer classes of men, and thus the nrdevas (or the ministers of the government) will be the vrshalas, or the uncultured lower-class men of society.

    It is a natural psychology in every individual case that a person likes to hear and enjoy his personal glories enumerated by others. That is a natural instinct, and the Lord, being also an individual personality like others, is not an exception to this psychology because psychological characteristics visible in the individual souls are but reflections of the same psychology in the Absolute Lord

    The Lord, situated in the hearts of all living entities, directs their senses. But He directs in terms of the surrender of the living entity, and in the case of a pure devotee He directly controls the senses. This tells that the acts of pure devotees are controlled by Krsna himself.

    There is no practical difference between appearance day and disappearance day of the acaryas, because both give us a chance to remember them more  intensely with a deeper sense of gratitude. Srila Prabhupada has done so much for all of us that as Maharaj used to say, "His glorification is going on 24 hours continuously all over the world".

    Just like in normal arithmetic, if we make any mistake in the beginning itself, then the same mistake will be carried out till the answer. Even if we take enough care, we will never get correct answer. Similarly if we do not understand the ABC of spiritual life that we are not this body, we are spirit  we can not achieve perfection.

    A devotee of Lord Krishna is he who believes sincerely that by becoming a devotee of the Lord one becomes fully equipped with everything spiritual. This teaching is imparted by the Lord Himself in the pages of the Bhagavad-Gita, in which it is clearly described that the Lord (Sri Krishna) is everything, and that to surrender unto Him solely and wholly makes one the most perfectly pious man.

    In the military rank the order of the captain or the commander is there. The soldier has to execute it. Never mind whether it is pious or impious. It doesn't matter. He has to act simply. Then he becomes a, real soldier. If he acts in that way, he gets remuneration, he gets reward, he gets title, he gets honor. He doesn't care. The commander asks him, "Just go and kill the enemy." He goes and kills. He gets reward. But killing, do you mean to say one gets reward? No. For the duty discharged.
