    Any opinion different from the opinion of the spiritual master is useless. One cannot infiltrate materially concocted ideas into spiritual advancement. That is deviation. There is no scope for adjusting spiritual advancement to material ideas."

    All the other scriptures in the world give only a vague description of who that Absolute Truth is...whereas Srimad Bhagavatam, in its very first verse, gives us the exact answer that "That Supreme Absolute Truth(param satyam) is Vaasudeva - Lord Sri Krishna! (om namo bhagavate vaasudevaaya...satyam param dhimahi"

    y going to London depends on so many factors which are ultimately controlled by Krishna. But if I say, "Krishna willing, I will be going to London", then it is perfect, because if Krsna desires, I will go and if He does not desire, I will not go. Either way it is perfect. Similarly, even when we do any activity, if we have the same consciousness that "Krishna willing...", then we will become perfect and peaceful.
