    When someone is angry, if we take the humble stand, then the person's anger melts.

    The spiritual master should be considered to be directly the Supreme Lord because he gives transcendental knowledge for enlightenment. Consequently, for one who maintains the material conception that the spiritual master is an ordinary human being, everything is frustrated. His enlightenment and his Vedic studies and knowledge are like the bathing of an elephant."

    It is not only for the transcendental poets or the spiritual science experts, but the duty of everyone who have got a human body. Although the human body is an asset, it is more valuable that the Lord enters into this body as Super-soul to guide one from the end less material misery.

    The other disciples were criticizing Vaduga nambi for being offensive to the Lord. The Lord cannot tolerate the criticism of His dear devotee and therefore decided to reveal the Guru bhakti of Vaduga nambi to all the disciples.

    Let us become sincere (read as sin seer). We should see our own sins and not the sins of the others. These programs make us see, understand, regret, and repent our sinful life and help us to take up the regulated life of devotional service by which all our sins are completely destroyed.

    After sat-sanga take prasadam, wind up every thing, and go home without any other talk. Otherwise there will be chit chat on materially concocted subjects which have neither truth, nor goodness, nor any value or benefit. And this will directly attack our heart and will degrade our devotional service."

    As soon as Guru was touched by the blood he asked, "What is it?" There was blood everywhere. Karna happily told him that he tolerated all these inconveniences, so that Guru is not disturbed. Instead of being happy at the disciple, see the plan of the Lord, the Guru was completely angry and upset at this incident.

    Take the example of Karna, Pandavas’ elder brother. Because he was born when Kunti was unmarried, she could not keep her. It is a long story. Kunti got a benediction that she could invoke any demigod and get a son.

    Brahmaji could understand the Lord to a little extent only when he was trying to serve Him by the eagerness of his heart (hrdautkanthyavataa), which is the devotional service mood. Therefore, the Lord can be known only by the sincere mood of eagerness for service, and not by any amount of material qualification".
