    Bhakti can be performed anywhere. But sincerity must be there.

    So many people we heard. Nobody influenced our life. And Prabhupada’s one book, small book we read, small article you read and you are amazed you know. You feel like doing something. He speaks with you. How can I afford to leave Prabhupada’s writing you know?

    We have the knowledge that early to bed and early to rise is good for us. We have that knowledge. But unless you go to bed early and get up early we won't have anything. That is the thing

    When we start blaming ourselves, the whole thing completely subsides. You try this. In your misunderstandings, you please try this thing. So instead of blaming others for our own difficulties, we should inspect our own self and you will find out that when you create this tendency the house which was Kurukshetra yuddha will be completely very peaceful.

    Sincerely engaging in Krishna's service is the only way for us to overcome the insurmountable illusory energy. Losing taste for service, forgetfulness of Krishna - these are the greatest misfortune in life.

    O Lord, although You are able to give all kinds of benedictions, I do not pray to You for the boon of impersonal liberation, nor the highest liberation of eternal life in Vaikuntha, nor any other boon (which may be obtained by executing the nine processes of bhakti). O Lord, I simply wish that this form of Yours as Bala Gopala in Vrndavana may ever be manifest in my heart, for what is the use to me of any other boon besides this?

    One should not be disturbed by the activities of the modes of nature; instead of putting his consciousness into such activities, he may transfer his consciousness to Kṛṣṇa activities. Kṛṣṇa activities are known as bhakti-yoga – always acting for Kṛṣṇa.

    Mother Lakṣmījī, the goddess of fortune, is well known for always massaging the lotus feet of Lord Nārāyaṇa. She is an ideal wife because she takes care of Lord Nārāyaṇa in every detail. She takes care not only of His lotus feet but of the household affairs of the Lord as well.

    Topics about Kṛṣṇa are like waves of nectar. If such nectar does not enter one’s ear, the ear is no better than the hole of a damaged conchshell. Such an ear is created for no purpose..

    To be engaged in the service of the Lord is the greatest benediction and devotees do not hanker for any other benediction.

    Crying is a good symptom of a devotee. But everyone who cries is not a devotee.

    As long as one surrenders to Supreme Lord and makes the Lord's mission as his life's mission, then one can please Supreme Lord. Lord loves to reclaim all the suffering souls back to Godhead and Prthu Maharaj by helping his citizens to take up the process of bhakti, he could please Supreme Lord.

    HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj says that we should behave in such a manner that Krishna would love to stay with us, but many times our behaviour is such that Krishna would want to depart from us.

    There is a great need to propagate the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement in the world so that even though people sometimes become angry and malicious toward one another, because of their being Kṛṣṇa conscious such rivalry, competition and envy can be adjusted without difficulty.

    My dear heroic King, please keep yourself always equipoised and treat people equally, whether they are greater than you, in the intermediate stage or lower than you. Do not be disturbed by temporary distress or happiness. Fully control your mind and senses.

    Regardless of one’s occupational duty, one should adopt the devotional means of hearing, chanting, remembering, worshiping, offering everything to the Lord and engaging in His service. In this way one can very easily engage himself in the service of the Lord. When the Lord is pleased with one’s service, one’s mission in life is fulfilled.

    One who is both devoted and highly advanced in intelligence does not take action against the soul or the body. If there is any discrepancy, he forgives. It is said that forgiveness is a quality of those who are advancing in spiritual knowledge.

    There is a saying that we can hate the sin, but not the sinner. When we train ourselves to see every living entity as atma, as part and parcel of Supreme Lord, then we will be able to forgive others and see Krishna's hand in all that happens in our lives.
