    H H Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj therefore gave a beautiful revelation on this point. He said that Narada muni converted waiting time into preaching time.

    We keep hearing day in and day out about how shravanam or "hearing" Krishna katha is very important for our progress in spiritual life. But the test for our effective hearing of this message shows up in the way we deal with unexpected reverses in life.

    We should fully fill our ear-holes with nectarean Krishna katha.  sambhrtam means "fully-fill". We should not give room for any mundane topics, but ensure that ears are fully filled with Krishna katha.

    The only way to understand Krishna is through devotion. There is no other way. Arjuna says that the Personality of the Lord is very difficult to understand and that He cannot be known even by the great demigods.

    The first quality we saw earlier - Art of perceiving other's miseries, is very much tied up with the art of forgetting our own miseries.

    One of the important qualities that Narada muni cultivated was that he was completely free from all material desires (gata sprhah). This is a very important qualification required to perceive other's miseries.

As scriptures mention janma, mrtyu, jaraa, vyaadhi and threefold miseries comes like a package with us at the time of birth and we simply have no control over it.

    Wish you all a very happy Gaura Purnima! May Lord Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu bestow upon us all spiritual opulences and bliss in the form of unlimited service opportunities on this glorious festival. Yesterday we discussed about the important quality of how pure devotees and the Supreme Lord always come to help the suffering souls ('as if called for'). Today let us try to meditate on how they develop this transcendental quality of para-upakaar.
