    While studying Srimad Bhagavatam recently, a beautiful verse in the 1st Canto 6th chapter led to some introspection of my behavior as an aspiring devotee. The verse is SB 1.6.33, spoken by Srila Narada Muni to Srila Vyasadev while narrating his previous life: pragaayatah sva viryaani / tirtha paada priya shravaah aahuta iva me shighram / darshanam yaati cetasi

    In Bhagavad Gita first chapter we find some of the verses wherein the names of different warriors who took part in the battlefield are all being mentioned. The devotees thought that chanting Mahamantra or Krishna's name is all auspicious.

    Envy or jealousy is like a fatal disease and the person who possess it, is sure to be destroyed. In fact it was this envious nature of Dhrtarashtra which led to the downfall of the Kuru dynasty.

    I was listening to a lecture of Srila Prabhupada wherein he mentioned that one should not over-endeavor for one's living. His Divine Grace says that we should find a work according to our nature. Such work can be done easily, without any effort.

    While explaining the word "Yashoda" our beloved spiritual master HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj says, yasha means "fame" and da means "to give".  So Yashoda means the glorious person. Yashoda is glorified everywhere because she glorifies Krishna.

    It is said that face is index of the mind. So many times, simply by looking at someone we would be able to know whether a person is happy or sad or angry. While a smiling face is pleasing to look, angry face is terrifying and not welcome by others.

    Material things are temporary and destructive: "The thing is with our mind, however hard we try, we cannot concentrate on anything in this world, what to talk of spiritual matters, which are not really visible to our skin eyes. These are called carma cakshu - eyes of the skin. As it is seen from Srimad Bhagavatam, all that we see with the skin eyes, has no endurance. It cannot continue.

    Also for Vedanta shruti, Maharaj said to note that it particularly refers to Bhagavad-Gita and Bhagavatam. Such shastras repeatedly reveals to us about our original position and the relationship with Supreme Lord, temporary nature of the material world, the beauty of Lord and His eternal abode.

    When you do a menial service to purify your heart, people may call you "show off"; Do it anyway. When we get some criticiscm for whatever seva we do, instead of becoming morose and stopping the service, we should honestly introspect our mood of service, pray to Guru and Krishna for help in purification and then continue with service.
