    Krishnarati devi dasi
    We should pray Kṛṣṇa daily that till He wants to keep us alive we must depend on ourselves for all activities, ātmārāmāya, completely self-satisfied. As soon as you depend upon so many things, then the dissatisfaction is there.

    Please, relish Krishna in every moment. And then correct pronunciation is the way to get near Him. These scriptures as we saw they are non-different from Krishna. So non-different means everything regarding the scripture is non-different from Krishna. Please relish every moment and please correctly pronounce

    Happiness in the world depends proportionately on the maintenance of the religious principles, individually or collectively. The best part of valor is to maintain the principles despite all kinds of odds. Thus one can be happy during the span of life and ultimately return to Godhead.

    He can do and undo a thing by His sweet will. Therefore no one should consider himself to be self-sufficient or independent of the Lord.

    People of all ages, both young and old must turn towards the eternal and the enchanting youth Sri Krishna Who alone can provide total protection and shelter at all critical times. Only then the society can regain its lost glory.

    If one does not ask, “Who am I? What is the goal of my life?” but instead follows the same animal propensities as cats and dogs, what is the use of his education?

    Bamboo, while it is green, you can bend it, but when its yellow or dry, oh, it cannot be bent. It will break. It will be break. Therefore school children... Just like Prahlāda Mahārāja is instructing his class fellows. School children, from five years old, they should be given lesson about Kṛṣṇa consciousness or God consciousness. Otherwise, in advanced age, oh, it is not possible

    Education means to lead the people gradually to Krishna consciousness. That is education, God consciousness.

     Our only worry or concern is forgetfulness of Krishna. As long as we are able to remember Krishna, then death also becomes very pleasant as taught by Maharaj.

    Similarly, for a preacher also, that is digvijaya. Go from country and country, from village to village, town to town, and make digvijaya: "Here is our philosophy. There is God. We can prove there is God. Who are you, you deny God? Come on." That is digvijaya"

    The real spirit of Akshaya Tritiya is that we (living entities) are like gold discoloured by material impurities. And if we put ourselves in the association of Lord Paraśurāmā who is like fire, by the process of devotional service, then we will be restored to our original purity.

    Srila Prabhupada explains in the commentary of Bhagavad-gita, "Vibhāvasu means fire. Without fire we cannot run factories, we cannot cook, etc., and that fire is Kṛṣṇa. The heat in the fire is Kṛṣṇa. According to Vedic medicine, indigestion is due to a low temperature in the belly. So even for digestion fire is needed."

    Not only He was looking like fire, but He carried a fearful axe which shone like lightning and a bow and an arrow. And His appearance was fiery not only for normal people, but even for great sages as Ramayana (1.73.19) confirms taṃ dṛṣṭvā bhīmasaṃkāśaṃ jvalantam iva pāvakam.

    Every plan will fail. And those who are plan-making persons, they are all rascals. They do not know that what kind of plan should be made. The plan should be made that everyone should be God conscious. Then every plan will be successful. Otherwise all, everything will fail.

    Silent does not mean that one should not speak; silent means that one should not speak nonsense. One should speak only of essentials, and the most essential speech for the devotee is to speak for the sake of the Supreme Lord.

    Our duration of life is not very long, and there is no certainty of when we shall be ordered to leave everything for the next stage. Thus it is our duty to see that not a moment of our life is wasted in topics which are not related with Lord Krishna. Any topic, however pleasant, is not worth hearing if it is devoid of its relation to Krishna.

    That should be the principle of devotees. Anything which has no connection with Krishna, we have no interest. Let it go. We are simply interested if it is related with Krishna.

    Our ears become wide open when someone is glorifying us, or whenever there is some gossip, mundane music, cinema, sports, politics, rumours, fights etc..
