     We are in harmony, when we understand that everything is done by Him. "I am not doing anything." When we understand this, that is sanity. Then we never become mad.

    As long as He wants to keep us alive, He will arrange for prasad somehow or the other.  We have come here. So we are getting here. If we have gone somewhere else, we would have got there. Somehow or the other He makes the arrangements.

    Time is always working on us. And we always keep remembering that, “we did this, we did that.”  All these are signs of destruction.

    To be grhastha is not bad. But too much attachment of grhastha is very bad.

    When he opens his mouth, then it is known as to who he/she is. Whether he/she belongs to a good family or related to prostitute. The words that come out of our mouth should always be good. And how can they be good?  when we recite the verses.

    Death is definite. If there has not been death, there would not be any religion. Then there is no fear, it is only the fear of death that is pushing us to find out something."

    The meaning of Yashoda is - yasha dadāti iti yashoda. Yasha means famous and one who is famous because of devotional service is Yashoda. Our Guru Maharaj says “If you also run after Krishna, you will also become famous”.

    Though He is all pervading He gets bound by a limited rope. And even though He is swifter than the speed of mind (manaso javiyah) and He can surpass all others in running (tad dhāvato anyān atyeti), He was caught by Mother Yashoda. Mother Yashoda was not a trained fighter like Kalayavana who can run at great speed. She was a normal household woman and has no practice in running and sports.

    Kṛṣṇa cannot be captured even by great yogīs traveling at the speed of the mind. He can be captured only by those who follow the path of devotional service, and Kālayavana was not practiced in devotional service.

    While Rama was going around in circles with his bow, the Rakshasas were confused by His unimaginable speed of movement and shooting arrows and saw the golden ends of the bow to be like a burning fire stick circling and could not see Rama completely.

    O Raghuveera, who dried the ocean of demons like Dhushana by sharp arrows. This was celebrated by all sages with words of Jayaghosha. You are the chanda marutham (fast and furious wind) who destroyed the great demon Khara who can be compared to a strong tree. You also finished the 14,000 demons very swiftly as a powerful elephant destroys a forest of swamped grass.

    In the beginning, when the army of the enemy was full of fighting soldiers, elephants and horses, Lord Paraśurāma proceeded into their midst at the speed of mind to kill them. When somewhat tired, he slowed down to the speed of wind and continued to kill the enemies vigorously. The speed of mind is greater than the speed of the wind.

    Within a second, Hiraṇyakaśipu and his followers were destroyed, and similarly if this godless civilization continues, it will be destroyed in a second, simply by the movement of one finger of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The demons should therefore be careful and curtail their godless civilization…As Hiraṇyakaśipu was killed in a second, the godless civilization can be destroyed at any moment.

    The bangle seller came and King asked “How far is Vaikunta from here?” The bangle seller instantly replied “It must be only at a hearing distance because Gajendra offered prayers to the Lord and the Lord was able to hear it from Vaikunta and rushed to the spot immediately”.

    Carrying Lord Hari, undecorated, saying; "Why?" as He rejects the jewel sandals a military commander offers in His hand, and forgetting that they are inside the palace, the bird-king Garuda suddenly leaves, making a sound like the trumpeting of elephants. I offer my respectful obeisances to the Lord's swift departure and great speed in rushing”.

    Garuda is the eternal carrier of the Lord. But here the Lord was even willing to reverse the position i.e He wants to become Garuda’s carrier and ready to carry Garuda on His back. This gesture on Lord’s part gives an understanding of the Lord’s speed when He rushes to protect His pure devotees.

    The Brahma-saṁhitā says that even if you can manufacture one aeroplane which has the speed of the mind, which has the speed of the air---panthās tu koṭi-śata-vatsara-sampragamyaḥ---and withthat speed you go on for many millions of years, still you will not find where is Goloka Vṛndāvana. Still, you will not find. ..So even with that speed and running on for koti-sata-vatsara, you cannot go to the spiritual planet

    We cannot approach the Supreme Personality of Godhead by the speed of mind or words, but if we stick to devotional service we can easily and quickly approach Him. In other words, the Supreme Lord is attracted by devotional service, and He can approach us more swiftly than we can approach Him with our mental speculation.

    Although fixed in His abode, the Personality of Godhead is swifter than the mind and can overcome all others running. The powerful demigods cannot approach Him. Although in one place, He controls those who supply the air and rain. He surpasses all in excellence.

    Really old age is real suffering. It’s only with Kṛṣṇa we can survive. In the beginning of our work, we can tolerate the pangs because of Kṛṣṇa. Death pangs also we tolerate because of Kṛṣṇa, otherwise you can’t tolerate.

    I mean to say, if you are really honest and hardworking, we can survive, we can somehow or the other survive. Nobody knows what you are doing. And don’t be ashamed. Always the big restaurants they start from the small beginning. River is always big, but at the root they are very small. So from small thing you can.

    We went to some orange garden. He will bring one sack of oranges. Eat Children! (Gurudev laughs) And now you go to orange garden, danda will come. ( Gurudev laughs) not a single orange. Because they knew that if you feed it Kṛṣṇa will again give. Now Kṛṣṇa is out of the picture. So danda is in picture. The magnanimity is gone. ​​​​​​​

    The basic principle should be that we should not unnecessarily hate anybody. Envy should be completely absent. With envious nature you cannot go one single inch ahead on the spiritual path. Envy is such a bad thing. First thing you have to stop is to be envious anywhere.

    In spiritual matters, process is also Kṛṣṇa and goal is also Kṛṣṇa. So it's very easy. You read Bhagavad Gita and Kṛṣṇa is there. So this consciousness is known as Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

    Force Kṛṣṇa and catch Him and keep Him with you in the form of Bhagavad Gita, in the form of some Prabhupada’s book. And these are all prelude to devotional service.
