We are all gopijana. We are the people who have unflinching faith in the teachings of Srila Prabhupada and Caitanya Mahaprabhu and that is why we have sacrificed our lives for this mission. You please, really sacrifice. Not half-heartedly. Don't keep something back. You just sacrifice. And if you do this, then you become gopijana.
Whatever we have, is from Prabhupada's purports. And that is more than enough for this lifetime. Even if you come back after death to Vrindavan in some cockroach form, even then, you hear this and you will be elevated. This is the best effect of one sincere devotee.
Only way is that if your child builds up faith in Lord Krishna and believes that Krishna is always with him, then he will never feel lonely, even if you are here or not. Then he will be able to face any challenges in this globe. Impossible can be possible if we start that work with full faith in Lord Krishna."
