    . Whatever you hard-wire in the protected parts of your brain when it is functioning, you will be able to re-draw on and will re-orientate you when everything else fails. The most important thing to hardwire into the brain, would be the transcendental sound vibration which is non-different from Krsna himself.

    If you look above, I mentioned that I picked up Gurudev's "used clothes" and not "dirty clothes". It is a delibrate choice of words on my part because it is from this incident that I learned that there is nothing "dirty" about the spritual master.

    It is said that Krsna is Madana-Mohana 'the Enchanter of the cupid, ie., He attracts even the Cupid. But Radharani is Madana-Mohana-Mohini ' the Enchanter of the Enchanter of the cupid.She is the dearmost lover of Krsna, so much so that, even Krishna cannot understand the level of Her love.

    Prasannatha (cheerfulness) is the only saving grace. And this we can get only through Srimad Bhagavatam. Because Bhagavatam does not pertain to any particular generation or age. It is eternal. So if we are with Bhagavatam, then we are always blissful."

    "Be in the world, but not of the world". The Lotus is the perfect example for this statement. We have to be in this world as long as we possess these bodies, but at the same time we do not identifyourselves with this world and be obsessed by it. Krishna's nature is like that too

Or Sometimes they get question in their minds, "What is the point in going through all this trouble of getting up early in the morning, doing so much service, sadhana etc, if in the end I have to suffer just like any other karmi (or most times even worse than the karmis) ?".
