The Test of Spiritual Advancement

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev. 

I was reading the local forum for the young devotee Prabhus in Singapore, Bhakta Vatsala, and a very nice matured devotee HG Sivakumar Prabhu posted this gravity filled point that Srila Prabhupada makes - it is truly a solid punch!! 

" Q) How can one test if he or she is making spiritual advancement? Answer by Srila Prabhupada - So the test is within our hand. If during mangala-arati we feel, laziness, that means I'm not yet spiritually advanced. And if one feels enthused, "Now it is the time for mangala-arati, let me stand up, let me do this " then it is spiritual. Anyone can test.  bhaktih paresanubhavo viraktir anyatrsyat  (Lecture:London, Aug 26 1973)"

Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev,
Devakinandan das
