    By showing mercy to all living entities, being satisfied somehow or other and controlling the senses from sense enjoyment, one can very quickly satisfy the Supreme Personality of  Godhead, Janardana.

    Words that do not describe the transcendental Personality of Godhead but instead deal with temporary matters are simply false and useless. Only those words that manifest the transcendental qualities of the Supreme Lord are actually truthful, auspicious and pious

    Reading all 12 cantos of Bhagavatam without faith gets us nowhere, but following one word of Guru with faith can simply pick us up from the deep rooted waters of material existence and place us into the true path of devotion.

Now I shall try to make you hear the very same thing as I learned it from him and as I have realized it."

    All the conditioned souls are impure due to contact with the material energy in three modes of nature. Therefore it is necessary that they purify themselves under the guidance of the bona fide spiritual master, who not only is a brahmana by qualification but must also be a Vaishnava.

But I do not favor anyone, however great he may be; unless he is always engaged in the service of Your lotus feet. Because I always keep You within my heart, I cannot favor anyone but a devotee."

    For spiritual advancement, one should be materially satisfied, for if one is not materially satisfied, his greed for material development will result in the frustration of his spiritual advancement. If one becomes too greedy, his good qualifications are lost. Therefore the adjustment is that one must try to be fully satisfied with the bare necessities of life and not be greedy. For a devotee to be satisfied with the bare necessities is therefore the best advice for spiritual advancement.

    As Maharaja has taught us (from the Granthraj posting "Convincing the mind to chant"), our mind has to be convinced to chant by factual arguments from shastra. Indeed, Maharaja is most kindly showering upon us evidences from Srila Prabhupada's books, so that we are bound to be liberated if we simply accept these to extinguish our forest fire of material life.

    A grain of devotion is better than tonnes of faithlessness. 'svalpam apyasya dharmasya traayate mahato bhayaat'.  We should first mould our life and then we can propagate. Somebody sees our life - By seeing they will take the lessons. Very easy to speak these things..when it comes to change our behaviour - thats the test.
