    Kalacakra Krsna das and Sudarshana devi dasi
    In the devotional paradigm we see that many times devotees surpass even their worshipable Lord in their service. In that process many times their activities may appear bewildering but we can understand the underlying plan of the devotee only through the eyes of the shastras and acaryas.

    ​​​​​​​Kalacakra Krsna das and Sudarshana devi dasi
    A tremendous amount of work and research has been conducted in the social circles as well as spiritual circles to find out the cause of disharmony and differences between different people, communities and nations in this world. Misunderstandings and differences have always existed in the human society from time immemorial but however in Kali yuga it is quite predominant.

    When Shamika rshi heard that his son Shrngi had immaturely used his brahminical powers and cursed Maharaj Parikshit for throwing a dead snake on his neck, Shamika rshi was upset and he advised his son that he had committed a great sinful action, by cursing the king for an insignificant offence.

    In the pastime of Dhruva Maharaj we find that when he was insulted by his step-mother Suruchi, he went to his mother Suniti and complained about the injustice done to him. As a ideal mother Suniti advised him not to be envious of his younger brother, but to go to forest and take shelter of Krishna.

    Recently I came across a very instructive story. When the Supreme Lord made man, the crown of all His creation, He showered every possible blessing on him. To each man was given a treasure of happiness. But unfortunately man abused the great gift given to him.

     One of the important lessons which our beloved spiritual master H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj has taught us is that performing household chores like cooking bhoga, washing clothes, washing vessels, keeping house clean, taking care of children, serving elders at home is also equally important service to Lord and it is not in any way less than other services like preaching, distribution, conducting programs etc.

    Everyone in this world are engaged in various activities to attain happiness, but one finds neither satiation nor the mitigation of distress. In the 16th chapter of 1st Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam, we see that Dharma, the personality of religious principles in the form of a bull met the personality of earth in the form of a cow and saw that she was grieving.

In Srimad Bhagavatam tenth canto we have Krishna lila. We are not supposed to go to tenth canto directly unless we study first and second cantos in detail.

    A simple person stops sense gratification and keep it within limits: Maharaj says, "If we go for shopping with 500 Rupees, we have to get things only within that money. We should not shop beyond that money. We should avoid borrowing money because it is actually grabbing Krishna's money."
