    Demons are so made that they devour living creatures, men and animals, but why on that account should I withdraw my brahminical qualification of forgiveness?

    You do one thing. If there are any genuine cow protection programs, please help them. At least this much we can do. The more our economy depends upon these things, we will be immune to the effects of international economy.

    Don't think that you are the only one and that, "if I follow some simple life, what is the effect of it?" But Srila Prabhupada was also all alone. If he would have thought that "I am the only one, old man, why should I try?" Then we would not be gathering here. How many people are benefitted today? So think about it.

    As soon as Krishna's name is there, everything will become completely clean and not only that, but for Krishna, we must have the highest standard and that is why the house in which Mangala arati is performed, the house in which chanting goes on, side by side the cleanliness must go on.

    The moment we start thinking that we are the doers and that we can do everything independent of Krishna, then we will never be able to hear Krishna's voice nor would we be able to accomplish anything in life.

    Thus even though, externally, a devotee may not render full service, if he is internally sincere and serious the Lord welcomes his service nonetheless

    it is the ignorance of the soul that without knowing how subtly the laws of karma work, we blame Krishna.

    Vyasadeva needs to describe the glories of the Lord just to do good to all eight classes of men, both good and bad. Srimad Bhagavatam is therefore not meant for any particular class of men or sect. It is for the sincere soul who actually wants his own welfare and peace of mind.

    The tree in the story represents our parents. When we are young, we love to play with them. When we grow up, we leave them and only come back when we need help. Parents sacrifice their lives for us.

    Speech is the most important quality of any man. It is said that a fool is undiscovered as long as he does not speak, and certainly a well-dressed fool cannot be identified unless he speaks, but as soon as he speaks, he reveals himself at once. The immediate symptom of a Krishna conscious man is that he speaks only of Krishna and of matters relating to Him."

    One who is both devoted and highly advanced in intelligence does not take action against the soul or the body. If there is any discrepancy, he forgives. It is said that forgiveness is a quality of those who are advancing in spiritual knowledge
