    Just like the bubbles appearing on the surface of water disappear within few moments, just like flies and insects are very short-lived, people who don't engage themselves in hearing Srimad Bhagavatam, who deprive themselves from hearing Srimad Bhagavatam are just born to die."

    Money has three states of existence - to be given in charity,  to be enjoyed and to be destroyed. If one does not give it in charity or utilize it, then that money will be destroyed by itself.

    One Indian poet has spoken of putra and mutra. putra means "son," and mutra means "urine." Both a son and urine come from the same genitals. If a son is an obedient devotee of the Lord, he is called putra, or a real son; otherwise, if he is not learned and is not a devotee, a son is nothing better than urine.

    A gentleman never kills a cow, and therefore when a cow becomes sterile and no longer gives milk, one must engage in the laborious task of protecting her, since no one will purchase a useless cow. It requires great endeavor to take care of a cow.

    A devotee is never concerned about anything material. Although Nabhi Maharaja wanted a son like Vishnu, wanting a son like God is also a form of sense gratification. A pure devotee wants only to engage in the Lord's loving service.

    The scriptures explain that it is only at the moment we get the wrong idea, viz. to enjoy God's energy for ourselves, that the original pleasure energy turns into the illusory material nature meant for our reformation.

    One can derive from the study of the Bhagavatam all benefits that are possible to be derived from the personal presence of the Lord. It carries with it all the transcendental blessings of Lord Sri Krishna that we can expect from His personal contact.

    The ghost Dhundukari also came there. Since he was unable to remain at one place in the air, he entered into bamboo stick which was having seven knots. He entered into the hollow base of the bamboo,to hear Srimad Bhagavatam.

    At the best we are those dogs, as we are not pulling the cart at all. Everything is being done for us by Krishna. Everything, you consider your own body. You don't have any control over your body... From the day we are born, our heart is non-stop working.

    When, luckily, the forgetfulness of Govinda on the part of imprisoned jivas is remarked by them by coming in contact with self-realized souls and their natural aptitude for the loving service of Krishna is aroused, Durgaa herself then becomes the agency of their deliverance by the will of Govinda.

    Have happy retirement - By not putting our time in devotional service and developing the taste for it when we are young, we are risking our retirement life. Many retirees have nothing much to do and they soon either spend the time worrying and lamenting or giving up their life as they have nothing to do

    On the other hand, they captivate My heart who are gladdened in heart and who, their lotus faces enlightened by nectarean smiles, respect the brahmanas, even though the brahmanas utter harsh words. They look upon the brahmanas as My own Self and pacify them by praising them in loving words, even as a son would appease an angry father or as I am pacifying you.

    Our innate tendency is to find fault in others and we are so miserly in appreciating any good thing done. We take good things for granted, but cannot tolerate even a small mistake.
