    When things are going smooth, we might be performing our prescribed duties as well as devotional activities in a peaceful manner. But the real test lies in how we react when distressful events happen in one's life.

    Material desires in the mind are the trash of material contamination. By such contamination, the living being is faced with so many compatible and incompatible things that discourage the very existence of spiritual identity.

    Krsna states in the above quoted verse that those who reject Bhagavad-gita as authoritycannot have any connection with Him, and because they have no relation to Him, they remainin the cycle of birth and death.

    It's unfortunately a symptom of Kali yuga to get caught up finding faults in others at least in the mind. Actually we should find the good in others and the faults in ourselves. The first offense which one has to avoid while chanting the Holy Name is, "To blaspheme the devotee who have dedicated their lives in propagating the Holy Names of the Lord ."

    When we surrender ourselves to Krsna, He nicely takes care of us, since we are His offsprings. We always like to be cared for or looked after lovingly by others. In this verse Krsna gives this assurance to Brahmaji that He is always taking care of his offsprings.

    Sudarshana devi dasi
    We find a nice Biblical equivalent for this verse, "Do unto others as you would like others to do unto you".These things become very clear as soon as we realise the "real" purpose of our life. Then we will never engage ourselves in causing troubles to others nor would we spend time dwelling our thoughts and energy on the troubles caused by others.

    In this world we are always discouraged from remembering ‘death’. Remembering death is usually condemned and considered inauspicious. But the inner reality is the ‘fear of death’ that beckons us of the danger of material enjoyment and consequently prevents us from that enjoyment.

    So the best way to understand the mysteries of Krsna is to preach His glories. Because as H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj says, "If you have to give class you have to prepare meticulously by preparing notes and following the MRTR (Memorize, Recite, Think and Realize) process".

    In reality this consciousness is what will help us to stand firm during trying circumstances in our lives. It is easy to accept someone glorifying us or helping us (which is what we usually expect Krishna or His devotees to do the moment we do some chanting or seva) because we think we naturally deserve them.
