    Vidura by his personal example is showing us as to what should be the mood when we approach holy places and to be more precise what should we do after going there.

    unless there is darkness, you cannot appreciate the quality of brightness; therefore Krishna has created darkness, maya also, so that you can appreciate what is brightness. Two things are required.

    Satisfaction is the key to peaceful life. In Srimad Bhagavatam we find Bali Maharaj questioning Vamanadev for asking only 3 paces of land. At that time Vamanadev explains to him about how important it is for a person to be satisfied with whatever is arranged by providence, for there is no limit for greed.

    Patience is necessary for developing the confidence that "Krishna will certainly accept me because I am engaging in devotional service." One has only to execute service according to the rules and regulations to insure success."

    When Parikshit Maharaj heard that he was cursed by the brahmana boy Shrngi for offending his father Shamika Muni, Parikshit Maharaj who was already repenting for his offence and waiting for punishment, felt relieved and immediately began his preparations for winding up his royal life.

    In the military regime, soldiers and captain have firm conviction either "DO or DIE" when they happen to fight with counter part of other countries using all their forces and strength. This is the chief principle of kshatriya in those days.

    When we don't surrender to Supreme Lord, we are always haunted by feeling of insecurity. Fear, anxiety and worry kills us and tortures us even before the actual moment of misery.

    our own spiritual well-being it is very important that we are alert like these and check whether the messages are related to Krishna. Apart from wasting our valuable time, such messages devoid of Krishna really disturb our consciousness, pollutes and contaminates our thoughts.

    The power of holy name is unlimited and we can get faith in it only by repeatedly remembering Bhagavatam stories. In the pages of Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 6 we find the story of Ajamila who in his childhood days was trained by his parents to lead a Vedic life, study Vedas and perform devotional service.

    And those who try to attach themselves to the material standards, they become stiff. They get arthritis. If you want to get rid of arthritis, then you should dance in front of Krishna.

    Don't be discouraged by different experiences inside the temple or outside the temple. The difficulties inside are much better than the difficulties outside because atleast there are Krishna conscious devotees here.

    Don't wander here and there unnecessarily. Wherever Narada Muni went, he gave Narayana to others. Otherwise he didn't go there to smoke or drink. No, no. No smoking or drinking - Only to give Narayana to others.

    In our life also, as long as there is mangala-arati, there is nothing wrong. But as soon as you miss mangala-arati, then everything is wrong. This is the main thing to be understood. Because if you don't go to mangala-arati, then that means you are in bed.

    Narada Muni is very important in the pages of Srimad Bhagavatam. These three chapters in first Canto particularly - starting from fourth chapter, four five and six - the whole story is squeezed into it.

    If it is good association, it will completely change you for good. But if association is bad, it will again drag you to the material whirlpool. Enough of whirlpools we had. Please ignore these things and try to come to this.

    We don't want to waste our time in this valuable material existence. We do our duty or sevaa whatever we are doing and engross every second of our existence in this. If you have this in front of you, the pointed attention to devotional service, nobody will be able to touch you.

    By following Srila Prabhupada's way, whatever minor ailments or chronic diseases are there, you will be able to overcome it. That is one way and as soon as Krishna sees that you are comfortable, then He watches how you are using the comfort.

    s soon as you are envious of others, the others are not harmed, your whole system goes wrong. Because envy is not our natural position. Our natural position is to be blissful in the remembrance of Krishna. That is our natural position.

     Everybody's muscles, everybody's 5 great elements are His energy. And once you go to understand this, then His energies will work alright, provided those energies are devoted to Him, to His service and that is why service is our constitutional position.

    Sometimes there might be some change, due to the association. Water's liquidity cannot be separated from water. But we have to remember one thing. The same water, using electricty can be converted into ice.

    When you have the sense of ownership on family members, you will be entangled more and more. Material energy will force you to create some other problem. So please don't worry about these things and try to be very careful and follow the scriptures and the same family will eventually be very comfortable with you

    As the saying goes "Gratitude is a great attitude". In Sanskrit it is called Krtajna. The opposite is Krtaghna (one who is ungrateful). Gratitude is a great quality which each one of us should possess, especially when we take up to devotional service.
