    Here is a very nice quote from Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur: 'Look within. Amend yourself, rather than pry into the frailties of others.' May all devotees give us blessings to live by above instructions.

    Jada Bharat instruction in SB 5.11.17 - So, the crux is to conquer the mind (jahi vyalikam). How? by the weapon (astra) of service to the Lotus feet (carana-upaasana) of the Spiritual master(guru) and the Supreme Lord (hari). One simple and sublime way to serve them is by following their instructions.

    The value of a moment's association with the devotee of the Lord cannot even be compared to the attainment of heavenly planets or liberation from matter,and what to speak of worldly benedictions in the form of material prosperity ,which are for those who are meant for death."

    Radha Madan Mohan Das,
    The Lord Krishna declared to Yogamaya, "My plenary expansion, Ananta or Sesa, is within the womb of Devaki. On account of being forcibly attracted to the womb of Rohini, He will be known as SanKarsna and will be the source of all spiritual power, or bala, by which one can attain the highest bliss of life, which is called rama. Therefore the plenary portion Ananta will be known after His appearance either as SanKarsna or as Balarama."

    The word "asanga" is very important in this connection because the attachment for sense enjoyment and lording it over the material nature is very strong. Therefore one must learn detachment by discussion of spiritual science based on authoritative scriptures, and one must hear from persons who are actually in knowledge.

    Since Krishna is all-attractive, His names being non-different from Him are also all-attractive and all-pleasing. As the absolute nature of devotional service goes, the very process of chanting His names is also enchanting :)

    O Narada, because I have caught hold of the lotus feet of the Supreme personality of Godhead, Hari ,with great zeal, whatever I say have never proved to be false. Nor is the progress of my mind ever deterred . Nor are my senses ever degraded by temporary attachment to matter.

    O killer of madhu demon, incessant transcendental bliss flows in the minds of those who have even once tasted but a drop of the nectar from the ocean of Your glories.Such exalted devotees forget the tiny reflection of so called material happiness produced from the material senses of sight and sound.

    Maharaj was all blissful as always, although he just returned from the function in the temple. I could understand that he was literally tired answering so many calls from all over the world, and constantly meeting with people, providing them with spiritual solutions for their material problems by giving enlightening realizations from the pages of Srimad Bhagavatam and Srimad Bhagavad-gita, so on and so  forth

    No doubt the imprints of these instructions and incidents are of an everlasting nature but in this age we are "blessed" with short-lived memories and time has the undesirable potency of being able to wipe away the memories of these eternal and sweet moments. So it would be judicious to pen them down quickly when they are fresh in our minds.

    The Lord is so unlimitedly merciful that we go seeking poison and the Lord bestows us the nectar of service at His lotus feet. What more can we say other than repeating the words of Sri Uddhava who says, "tato anyam kam va dayalum saranam vrajema?" - How can we take the shelter of any person other than this Lord who is so merciful?

    This uncontrolled mind is the greatest enemy of the living entity. If one neglects it or gives it a chance, it will grow more and more powerful and will become victorious. Although it is not factual, it is very strong. It covers the constitutional position of the soul. O King, please try to conquer this mind by the weapon of service to the lotus feet of the spiritual master and of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Do this with great care.

    All created beings are unmanifest in their beginning, manifest in their interim state, and unmanifest again when annihilated. So what need is there for lamentation?

    These people are not the cause of my happiness and distress. Neither are the demigods, my own body, the planets, my past work or time. Rather it is the mind alone that causes happiness and distress and perpetuates the rotation of material life.

    A scholarly brahmana, expert in all subjects of vedic knowledge, is unfit to become a spiritual master without being a Vaishnava ,or expert in the science of Krishna consciousness. But a person born in a family of lower caste can become a spiritual master if he is a Vaishnava or in Krishna consciousness."
