    In the pastimes of Lord Ramachandra, we see that in order to get back Sita mata who was kidnapped by Ravana by crossing over the ocean, Lord Rama reached the beach and fasted for three days, awaiting the arrival of the ocean personified.

    "Material existence causes discontent in regard to fulfilling one's lusty desires and achieving more and more money. This is the cause for the continuation of material life, which is full of repeated birth and death. But one who is satisfied by that which is obtained by destiny is fit for liberation from this material existence."

    "Time and tide waits for no one", an old saying goes, bringing to mind what kind of grip time has got on our necks. Are we not easily put into stress by it, and are miseries not coming closer to us, day by day, in the form of old age, sickness and death?

    This verse (Gita 2.62) is beautiful. He says 'dhyaayato vishayaan pumsah'. First the dhyaan starts. We meditate on vishayas. Sense gratificatory things, we always meditate. As soon as you are free, you are not chanting, you are not reading Bhagavatam, means, your mind cannot be vacant. Always attached to think about something.

    It is our great fortune that Srila Prabhupada just left India in his 70s and came to America. Otherwise all of you would be chewing the dead-flesh by now, and omlettes and what not? He has saved us from all these things. Now it is our duty to come to him very submissively and take his instructions to our heart.

    When we chant the names of Krishna, we are forced to study the scriptures, which is again non-different from Krishna. All these devotional activities starting from chanting, mangala-arati and the whole day Bhagavatam discussion, Bhagavad Gita discussion etc, they are Krishna themselves.

    Bhakti is rare and special gift of Krishna: (Maharaj soulfully began to sing 'jaya radha madhava' and started explaining the names in the song.) If you want to enter into gopi-bhaav, the highest sentiment which the gopis followed, then you have to relish the devotional service, every second of your conscious human existence, neglecting all other concocted things.

    .'Just by talking sweetly, just by giving shelter to living entities, psychologically they will improve. In the end, Krishna is there to look after everybody. Krishna looks. It is His nature. He will not neglect any living entity and if you are chanting, worshiping Him, glorifying Him through names, or if you are working for Him, definitely He will look after you. His attention will be on you.
