My dear Lord, people in general want to be elevated to the higher planetary systems for a long duration of life, opulence and enjoyment, but I have seen all of these through the activities of my father. When my father was angry and he laughed sarcastically at the demigods, they were immediately vanquished simply by seeing the movements of his eyebrows. Yet my father, who was so powerful, has now been vanquished by You within a moment
You are an indeterminable one, an inaccessible one, one with His self conquered, the supreme among righteous souls, Your glory is unmitigated, and You are the one with clear discrimination, and in endurance earth-like, and Your eyes are blood-streaked like those of an emperor
Just see how Dhruva Maharaja, aggrieved at the harsh words of his stepmother, went to the forest at the age of only five years and under my direction underwent austerity. Although the Supreme Personality of Godhead is unconquerable, Dhruva Maharaja defeated Him with the specific qualifications possessed by the Lord's devotees
Lord Brahma said: O my Lord, today, after many, many years of penance, I have come to know about You. Oh, how unfortunate the embodied living entities are that they are unable to know Your personality! My Lord, You are the only knowable object because there is nothing supreme beyond You. If there is anything supposedly superior to You, it is not the Absolute. You exist as the Supreme by exhibiting the creative energy of matter
The Personality of Godhead said: If I especially favor someone, I gradually deprive him of his wealth. Then the relatives and friends of such a poverty-stricken man abandon him. In this way he suffers one distress after another
Krishna is like a discount emporium. Whole year He gives you subsidies. During Karthik and Purushottam month the subsidies increases. The only qualification to get this discount is how much we surrender unto Him
Pure love for Krsna is eternally established in the hearts of living entities. It is not something to be gained from another source. When the heart is purified by hearing and chanting, the living entity naturally awakens.
O Brahma, the prayers that you have chanted praising the glories of My transcendental activities, the penance you have undertaken to understand Me, and your firm faith in Me - all these are to be considered My causeless mercy
O my Lord sri Krishna, You are the almighty Personality of Godhead. There is no limit to Your different energies. Therefore only You are competent to instill fearlessness in the hearts of Your devotees. Everyone in the flames of material miseries can find the path of liberation in You only
My dear sons of the King, I am very much pleased by the friendly relationships among you. All of you are engagedin one occupation - devotional service. I am so pleased with your mutual friendship that I wish you all good fortune. Now you may ask a benediction of Me
Krishna's plan is that as soon as the living entity is promoted by gradual evolution to the platform of human life, he has to understand his spiritual position. This cannot be understood unless the senses and mind are in control.
