    Once there lived three fishes in a lake. One fish was lazy, another was intelligent and third one was wise and active by nature. So one day when the wise fish was happily playing around in the water, it overheard fishermen talking to one another.

    There is a famous proverb that laziness is the workshop of devil. In Bhagavad Gita verse 18.39 Lord Krishna says, yad agre caanubandhe ca / sukham mohanam aatmanah nidraalasya pramaadottham / tat taamasam udaahrtam

    The word sarvatra means 'in all space and time' and sarvadaa means 'in all circumstances'. There should not be any voluntary breaks in our service. For example, sun always rises in the east every morning without fail. Whether it is prescribed duty or devotional service, during the initial period, there is lot of eagerness and enthusiasm to do the service.

    Yesterday was the auspicious day of Akshaya tritiya and Parasurama Jayanti. 'Kshaya' means dimunition and 'Akshaya' means that which does not undergo dimunition and which will always grow. People have the wrong understanding that if gold/silver is purchased on this day, then their wealth will increase and not reduce.

    It is our daily experience that too much familiarity with anyone or anything causes contempt and disrespect. That is why our beloved spiritual master H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj always insisted that in this world intimacy should be avoided. When we become intimate with someone, then it becomes the cause of disturbance. Maharaj always said that the other side of intimacy is discrimination.

    In our previous offering on this topic we saw some of the beautiful transcendental qualities of Prahlad Maharaj by which he always attracts the Supreme Lord Narasimhadev. In the verse SB 7.8.7 we saw that Prahlad Maharaj categorically rejected the mindset of Hiranyakashipu that he was the owner and controller of all the worlds.
