    From the scriptures we understand that the Lord’s form is full of effulgence and His nails radiate great effulgence. In our case, our toe nails are by nature not effulgent.

    And also in the episode of Dhruva Maharaj, Dhruva went to the forest to meditate on Lord Vishnu to gain the universal kingdom. He was advised by Narada Muni on the mantra Om namo bhagavate vasudevaya and Narada Muni also taught him how to meditate on the Lord’s spiritual form limb by limb as per the yoga system.

    In the association (of devotees) we are enthused. On our own we lose the enthusiasm. So sometime we have to come together. Man is the special animal in human being. We have to socialize and we have to socialize in this way (sankirtan). Otherwise ordinary people also they hanker after socialization.
