    Maharaj says that our test for devotional service is how long are we able to sit alone with Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavatam.

    Our determination should be to become a devotee of Krishna. Instead of other determinations that drag us to the hellish life, we should be determined and resolved to be with Krishna.

    When Sumithra heard the news, instead of crying for Lakshmana's life, she told Hanuman to take her second son Shatrughna along with him, as she was much concerned that the service to Lord Ram should not stop even if one of her son dies. What a great mother she is !

    Chanting of this holy mantra is the only shelter of the desireless pure devotee of the Lord. Simply by such tapasya, or penance, the devotee of the Lord achieves all perfections like Lord Brahmā

    In the darkness one cannot see the sun, nor himself, nor the world. But in the sunlight one can see the sun, himself and the world around him.

    That most dear one is the Lord of the universe, who is the bestower of real love and happiness and the source of all prosperity. Although He is in my own heart, I have completely neglected Him. Instead I have ignorantly served insignificant men who can never satisfy my real desires and who have simply brought me unhappiness, fear, anxiety, lamentation and illusion.

    Whatever devotional service you planned to do tomorrow, do today, what devotional service you planned to do today, start it now, for there will be a devastation in a few momemts, then when will you do it?

    When you become perplexed, you want to do something, Kṛṣṇa gives you the opportunity - "All right, do it like this." That is His mercy.There is no question of chance. There is nothing like chance. This is foolish proposition."

    Simply chastise. Don't pat." This is the injunction, moral injunction. So, so far we are concerned, when our spiritual master used to chastise, we took it as blessing. That was very nice. And he would chastise like anything. "Damn rascal," "foolish," "stupid," anything, all good words.

    People are pleased to hear Bhagavatam. People are very much elated if you give them Bhagavad Gita. Everybody wants guidance. And this is the supreme source of practical guidance, eventually leading to the last stage, going back, back home, back to Godhead.

    No shastra tells us to escape the prescribed duty. That is the beauty of this Bhagavatam. It never drags you out. But always remember that there are misfits.

    The entire Vedic way of ritualistic performances is to put every conditioned soul on the path of piety.

    Somebody says ‘no I am in the house, and I can’t go from house to house, city is too big for me’. Alright you are staying in one lane, you just go to your lane. Somebody says ‘no, I can’t do that’, he says don’t worry, take Japa mala and chant continuously. This is gāṁ paryaṭaṁs, everything is included in gāṁ paryaṭaṁs.

    Whenever we want to see Krishna, please hata-trapaḥ paṭhan, ignore all the standards, and do these things. Those who do these things, they get everything.

    And Guru tattva is same, so please don’t differentiate. No differentiation at all. Tattva is same, it is parampara, so same message has got to be repeated. There is no new message. If you create a new message, then we don’t belong to the Parampara. It is the same message.

    Now if there would have been any greedy doctor, he would have misdirected her. But he very frankly told her that you don’t have any disease, you just do one thing Mata, in front of you, there is a temple, daily visit the temple and forget about the sickness.
