    Bhagavatam says that one should not live for sense gratification. One should satisfy the senses only insomuch as required for self-preservation, and not for sense gratification.

    Man is the architect of his own fortune. In this human life one has the facility with which to understand one's real situation, and one can decide whether to wander around the universe forever or return home, back to Godhead.

    One merely has to become sincere in his purpose, and then the Lord is there to help in every way. With all our present inebrities, we should continue to engage in the service of the Spiritual master and the Lord.

    In the association of pure devotees, discussion of the pastimes and activities of the Supreme Personality of Godhead is very pleasing and satisfying to the ear and the heart. By cultivating such knowledge one gradually becomes advanced on the path of liberation, and thereafter he is freed, and his attraction becomes fixed. Then real devotion and devotional service begin.

    Always practise the virtue of remembering the Lord. Abandon all the temporary duties connected to the worldly affairs, which are unimportant. Be eager to take association of saintly persons. Give up all thirst for the pleasure of senses. Stop meditating on others' defects. Instead meditate only on their good qualities and appreciate them. You should enjoy the bliss of serving the Lord and hear His stories with devotion.

    Just like, if I wanted to become a great musician, I would have to work practising seriously for hours and hours on end. The fruit of my hard labor would be the achievement of musical flair. So this kind of activity, with a material end result or fruit in mind, is called fruitive activity by Prabhupada.

    Whatever activity we do, we should do it for pleasing Krishna. By keeping Krishna as center of all our activities, we will always be at peace. There will be no anxiety about success or failure, because we know that Krishna is simply happy with our sincere endeavours.

    Give up the thought that this body is you. It is nothing but a collection of bones, flesh and blood. Give up the ownership on wife, children etc., realize that this world is very temporary. Show interest and relish (become a rasika) detachment from everything by performing devotional service unto the primeval Lord Govinda, with great determination."

    In devotional service also, when other devotees try to serve us (thinking us to be devotees) or we take help from them, we should be careful not exploit their service attitude and we should try to remain grateful to their help.

    People are very much anxious to accumulate wealth, prestige, power and comforts to live nicely. But they do not understand that learning how to leave this world is more important than learning how to live nicely. Death is the final exam.

    A chaste woman should not be greedy, but satisfied in all circumstances. She must be very expert in handling household affairs and should be fully conversant with religious principles. She should speak pleasingly and truthfully and should be very careful and always clean and pure. Thus a chaste woman should engage with affection in the service of a husband who is not fallen.

    Temporary material world is our weakness. Our body is a bad bargain and therefore, every bad thing starts from body. It is said that this sharira (body) is roga mandiram, temple of diseases.

    The spiritual energy consists of both the Lord Himself and His innumerable emanations of souls, called jiva or atma. Now because the Lord has bestowed upon all His spiritual parts the freedom of choice to stay with Him or separate from Him, and a third category (jiva-shakti), also called the marginal potency, is there.

    Blessed are those, in whose hearts dwells the devotion to Sri Hari, even if they are deprived of wealth. In reciprocation to their devotion, Lord Sri Hari resides in their hearts completely renouncing His own divine abode.

    This Bhagavata Purana is as brilliant as the sun, and it has arisen just after the departure of Lord Krishna to His own abode, accompanied by religion, knowledge, etc. Persons who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of ignorance in the age of Kali shall get light from this Purana."

    One who does not listen to even a little bit of narration of Srimad Bhagavatam by Sukadeva Goswami is considered as a sinner who is like a living corpse. The leaders of devatas will condemn them by saying, 'Shame on that person, who is just a burden to Mother earth

    Alas, the fool by whom even a little of story of Srimad Bhagavatam is not drunk with a concentrated mind, during his life time has, has spent his life like a candaala or like a donkey in vain. Such a fool has proved to be instrumental only in causing pangs of child birth to his mother.

    That house in which Srimad Bhagavata katha is read every day, that house will be converted into a sacred place. Bhagavatam drives aways all the sins living in that house and so it becomes a punyakshetra.
