    In Srimad Bhagavatam canto 5, chapter 5, the Supreme Lord Rshabadev gives many wonderful messages to His sons about the do's and don'ts of devotional service.Every shloka in this verse is worth meditating upon and needs to be practised in our day to day life

    Things will keep happening with us at different levels depending upon our prarabdha (past life karmas), but Lord will definitely come to protect us if we completely trust Him. Let our prarabdha karma do its own work and we do our own work of trusting, depending, loving Krishna without any conditions.

    The conclusion is that, Lord Krishna is the Supreme and nothing ever happens without the sanction of the Lord. Hence, the term 'Supreme Personality of Godhead' is very appropriate for Krishna and can be only used for Him.

    All the acharyas have lived their life as per the Lord's instructions in Gita and that is why they were so dear to Lord and were able to accomplish so much in such a less time. If we try even 1% of what our acharyas have done in their entire life, then it can be called as success of our life..

    Spiritual Investment

    After attaining the human form of life, one should make this spiritual investment under the guidance of the pure devotees of the Lord, since the human body with all the senses and faculty of advanced intelligence is very suitable for God realization. When they're in good working condition if we engage them in devotional service, we can accrue permanent spiritual assets which can take us back to the Lord's eternal abode.

    Maharaj in his notes writes that this entire episode tells us that Krishna consciousness is a fact. Actually speaking, there is no endeavor because it is pleasing all the way and anyone who takes up even a little bit of this Krishna consciousness they will become purified. When we do devotional service, devotional service surpasses us.

    When you come to Krishna consciousness you find that there is no need for any endeavor because chanting is simple, prasadam is very easy, sitting down and listening to kirtan and katha is very natural. This is because it is a fact.

    The more simple we are in our life, the more Krishna conscious we become. That is a fact. The simpler you are in your life, the less complicated you are as a person. Is it not true? Very often we find that complications are there because we have too much stock with us.

    There is nothing in between us and Krishna. The only thing that is between us and Krishna is the fact that we cannot accept Him as our supreme Lord. There is no other reason. There is no condition in which we have to approach Krishna.

    Our human culture must improve. And it is all practical. Otherwise even God's names will not help you really. The behavior must improve. On one side, the behavior should be completely sublime and then you are at ease. With that ease, you please come to Krishna. Krishna will accept you.

    In no faith it is insisted that we should cross the limits of God's instructions. If you cross the limit you are nowhere. As it is the material life is miserable and we make it more miserable by our sinful activities. How are we going to improve our standard of life?

    By regulated eating you will be able to avoid a bit of misery. Even then you are in misery. Because the aging is there. Nobody can avoid. You are aging. I am aging. Everybody is aging without exception. There is no exception for this. But here Bhagavatam again gives a clue how to minimise the aging.

    As soon as we are connected through His names to Him, then we are completely satisfied. This is the real satisfaction. Otherwise, you do anything and everything, you will never be satisfied. And we many times are so foolish to run after the bodily necessities and unknowingly we ignore the spiritual side. And as soon as we ignore, we are not satisfied at all.

    In our day to day lives also, when people blame or criticise us, if we simply bend down and accept the blame and criticism silently, then there will not be any break in devotional service. On the other hand when we counteract to the blame, we will become agitated, lose our peace of mind and gradually lose taste in chanting and bhakti.

    Many a times when we are doing some service, we lack this broad vision or foreseeing nature. But it is very important that we develop this attitude in any service which we are doing for Supreme Lord. Srila Vyasadev had foreseen that men in Kaliyuga have less memory and are dull headed and so he mercifully wrote down the shastras.

    Prabhuji emphasized on the fact that unless we become factually convinced of the Lord's opulence and greatness it is very difficult to become fixed and serious in devotional service and to get rid of the anarthas. Hence we should not neglect to understand fully how great Krishna is, for by knowing the greatness of Krishna one will be able to be fixed in sincere devotional service.

    In order to have the taste for holy names, we have to study Srimad Bhagavatam and in order to develop taste for studying Srimad Bhagavatam we should chant the Holy Names sincerely.

    If Krishna wants to become the servitor of the devotees, the devotee does not have to ask Him to do that. He will do it Himself. Arjuna never asked Krishna to become charioteer. So we do not have to worry about whether Krishna will take care of us.

    If you are grave, that means you know you are going to die. When you know you are going to die, and do nice deity worship then you become happy. But when you know you are going to die and you continue to fulfill your material desires, then every time you fulfill your material desires, you are already dying to be born again in another material body which is a product of that desire
