    Transformational leadership, on the other hand, downplays techniques and skills for the sake of higher philosophy, values and morality, in seeking to transform or empower followers to become self-inspired assets of beneficial value, not only for the organization but for the world as well.

    If a devotee dives into that lake and drinks its waters, all his exhaustion from material life will go away. We simply have to plunge into devotional service by hearing about Krishna, chanting His glories, and remembering Him

    Entering into a lake or river especially during the hot summer will relieve us so much from the suffering caused due to heat. In the same way  entering into the lake/river of the Lord's glories will relieve us of the heat caused by the three fold miseries (adhyatmika, adhi bhautika and adhidaivika) called as taapa trayas (three fold miseries).

    The scriptures tell us that taking bath daily is a must.  sahasram vihaaya snaatavyam - even if you have 1000 engagements, leave them to take a bath. Not only its hygiene but also a basic need for performing any Vedic rituals mentioned in the scriptures.

    Unfortunately we get tossed by one desire after another and get drowned in the whirlpool of miseries. How to come out of this whirlpool? Narada Muni guarantees based on his personal experience that this vast ocean of material miseries - bhava sindhu can be overcome by boarding the boat - "hari caryaanu varnanam" - Constant chanting of the Holy Names of the Lord is the boat or plavah which will take us out of the path of material miseries.

    What to talk of those who are inimical to us, life's ways are such that no matter how nice people are, when they are in some very difficult or painful situations, they will speak some hurting words and when these come from our near and dear ones, it becomes very difficult to take them and sometimes it permanently affects our relationships

    "Nobody can hide their evil motives completely from a learned person", Hanuman said, "and I can see that Vibhishana comes without evil intent. He simply wants adharmic Ravana to be dismantled from the throne of Lanka, so that Vibhishana himself can take over the rule, now in a dharmic manner.

    our heart is meant to be the residence of our dear Lord Shyamasundara. We contaminate it with so many other tendencies that there is no place for the Lord and how can the Lord tolerate His residence being taken over by these contaminations

    Lord Shiva  advised Pippalada that there is no use seeking revenge against the devatas for the death of his parents. Everything happens according to the laws of Karma and hence he should not be wasting his efforts and time in seeking revenge forgetting the supreme goal of our life.
