    But the amount we taste the 'pain' depends on the container we put it into. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things . Stop being a glass. Become a lake!"

    One of the very nice lesson which Srila Prabhupada has taught us is to address devotees as "Prabhus" and "Mathajis". But it is important for us to understand the real intent behind this as well. If we keep un-necessary grudge with devotees and superficially address them as "Prabhus", then the whole purpose is lost.
