    Krishna is the Supreme Absloute Truth. We have to come to this conclusion. Then your existence is respiritualised. Always you are spiritual. But we have forgotten, we are covered by these material things. And because we are covered, falsely we think that,

    When Vyasadev was morose, his Guru Maharaj came, and then he asked, "What is the trouble that you have? You are so very learned, you have written so many things, why are you feeling morose?" Then Vyasadev himself gave the answer.

    It is not about becoming a skilful leader, expert in stimulating employees to do their level best for success; for the intelligent person, the long-term outcome of leadership is what counts.

    This is in continuation of the previous offering titled, "Leadership and Dharma", in which we saw the value of senior counsel by the story of King Pracinabarhi, who by the instructions of Narada was able to give up his kingdom, which was full of materialism, and became a devotee instead.

    So this is an example of a leader that attains the highest goal of life – doing the highest service to humanity in the same go, by showing the way (vartma-pradaarshika) – simply by being humble enough to allow a dear devotee of Krishna to preach to him. Thus to avoid ending up doing kuta-dharma a leader must not forget to serve the instructions of the advanced elders (vrddha-seva).

    When one is a mixed devotee, one has a problem with pride. Because the ulterior motivation to become recognised for one’s skills or knowledge in the course of performing bhakti is there, sometimes Krishna has to give that devotee a slap, so that he’ll be able to shake off that prideful motivation.

    The body can work very well. There is no parishram in the body, if it is used for Krishna. If it is not used for Krishna, then body is a big problem, big problem. And then our consciousness completely goes down and we are on the bodily platform then.

    Even if a business man has his own office, nice air-conditioned office, nice dealing in gold and jewel and everything, but he doesn’t know that he is carrying the same body full of stool and urine. It is not golden body. He may be dealing with the gold and jewels and everything, but the body is full of stool and urine.

    Prahlad went to Narasinghadev and paid obeisances and he did'nt know what to say, you know. But Narasinghadev bhagavan knew that he is a devotee. So He was pleased with the devotee. So He touched His hand on his head. And as soon as He touched with His hand,  Prahlad Maharaj recited the prayers to pacify Narasingha Bhagavan.

    grhastas responsibilities multiply. And you wanted to be a grhasta, you are grhasta, then behave like grhasta. This is the main instruction to be followed. Otherwise we become like Ravana, Hiranyakasibu, Sishupal and many others. And when you become and you lose everything.

    As soon as you utter Krishna’s names, you do not belong to the material world. And as soon as the book comes in your hand, Srila Prabhupad’s any book, small book or big book it doesn’t matter at all, immediately we are dragged out from the material platform and we are forced to be on the spiritual platform

    And Bhagavatam will not falsely guarantee you. You see. The material guarantee, "this machine has guarantee for 12 months", and if you come back after 12 months, your machine will be completely out. They deceive you. But Bhagavatam will never do that.

    As we become old, we should be completely silent—that is the nice thing. We should be completely silent, because anyway the children understand everything. They are not going to be under our control anymore. So it is better if we suggest something to them, if they like they will follow. Otherwise they will suffer.

    Srila Prabhupada reveals that Daksha was not just angry but deeply envious of Shiva. "Daksha was envious of Lord Shiva because of Shiva's high position as an incarnation of a quality of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and because Shiva was directly in contact with the Supersoul and was therefore honored and given a better sitting place than he.

    If a human being is born in an aristocratic family or a higher status of life, if he performs wonderful activities, if he is youthful, if he has personal beauty, a good education and good wealth, and if he is nonetheless not proud of his opulences, it is to be understood that he is especially favoured by the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

    As Krishna says to Arjuna, maam anusmara yudhya ca; 'remember Me and fight at the same time – then you will win glory'. What is that glory? As Krishna teaches Arjuna further in the Gita, the real glory is to win over one's lower nature, kaama, that all-devouring enemy which drags a man down to the animal platform.

In this way Maharaja Gaya kept all the citizens very satisfied

    It is not that those who lead does not serve. The leaders serve their dependents by protecting them and making sure they blossom in life! This is also known as Servant Leadership, in which the main goal is to serve.
