    If one chants on his beads properly, then the Supreme Personality of Godhead remembers this intelligent devotee for thousands of births and rewards the devotee spiritual perfection.

    Manohar Krishna das,
    The nature of the soul is that it should serve the Supreme Absolute Truth, Lord Sri Krishna. Soul as part and parcel of Krishna has nothing else to do. We need to understand this point. As soon we go against our nature of lovingly serve Krishna, we are in miserable condition.

    how can we factually feel ourselves to be less than a blade of grass which is completely different in nature than us ? While I was reading some memories of Srila Prabhupada in the beginning days of the Hare Krishna movement in the Lower East Side in New York , I found a very simple and practical way of implementing this instruction in our  lives.

    He is adrshta rupa - one whose form is not seen by material eyes). So we should see Him through our ears (srutekshita) and not our eyes. And when we make this chanting/singing a ritual, we cannot experience Him even after years of chanting".

    We understand from the authorities and the scriptures that our existence at every moment is dependent on the Supreme mercy of Shri Krishna. His companionship in the form of Supersoul (Paramatma) is constant and His efforts and mercy to deliverus from this material mire is also constant.

    Narada muni understands the waiting time as an opportunity to preach. So he made use of that time to perform devotional service. Whereas for demons and non-devotees, this same time appears as the personified death.

    To find relief and happiness we look here and there, try so many things, but so few of us get to the root cause of our suffering. In the Bhagavad-gita 3.3.7, Krishna explains that lust is the true enemy of this world and the root of our distress.

    To put in simple words, we cannot relish the pastimes of the Lord unless we 'under' stand them. 'under' standing in the real sense means 'to stand-under'. Stand-under implies that we should stand under something or somebody. We cannot stand under 'nothing'. So that something or somebody is Shastras or Guru.

    In impure consciousness one thinks of himself as the Lord of the universe, but in purified consciousness one thinks himself the eternal servant of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Putting oneself in that position of eternal servitorship to the Supreme Lord and working for him perpetually, one actually becomes completely satisfied.

    Therefore the devotional service to the Lord must be pure in quality i.e without the least desire for material enjoyment. One should therefore accept the superior quality of occupation in the form of devotional service of the lord without any tinge of unnecessary desire, fruitive action and philosophical speculation. This alone can lead one to perpetual solace in his service.

    We completely forget the fact that it is out of His causeless mercy that the Lord has allowed us to be engaged in His service and all the facilities are supplied by Him alone. We are all being continually kicked by the laws of the Lord's illusory energy at every step, just like the donkey got the whipping from his master, because we are greatly puffed up by the borrowed plumes.
