Faith comes by hearing Krsna Katha in the association of sincere devotees regularly.

Association can make us convince anything.

Senses should be saturated with Krsna.

Sense gratification means we are using the instrument (human body) meant for Liberation and using it for our Bondage.

A person in transcendental consciousness sees positive opportunity in every situation of life.

We cannot control environment around us, but we can control our perception completely.

I we are looking for God or an opportunity to learn and enrich our lives in every situation, we will find that, but if we are looking for how am I enjoying or suffering, we are subject to endless frustration.

For a devotee death opens door for liberation but for a non-devotee death is end of everything.

Test of advancement : Eagerness to hear Krsna Katha increases & mundane talk decreases.

At every moment of life, according to our association, we are being conditioned, habituated, put in a state of mental bondage.

If a leader engages in sinful activity that becomes the standard, if he is strict that becomes the standard.

When you take responsibility over others you have to be actually SELFLESS.

When we are honoured for a thing, we become attached to that thing.

In this world, all pleasures are sources of pain.

Srila Prabhupada - "To the degree you accept responsibility you become Krsna Conscious.

Responsibility means to perform our service properly, with proper attitude, behavior and words.

The greater is our sphere of influence, the greater the responsibility.

The more big you are the more Maya will utilize you.

If you do some wonderful service & if you tell people what you did in a boastful way, it nullifies the credit of your service, may bot be in the eternal platform, but in your conscious condition you will not be able to reap the benefits of that service.

As you treat a devotee you treat Krsna & accordingly you get results.

To purify the heart is the one and only purpose that God has created this human life.

Krsna will take our devotional service seriously when he sees we have gratitude to the great souls who have given their lives to help us.

Our spiritual progress is depending on - 1) our service attitude, 2) our sincere chanting.

To the proportion we realize that this material world is dangerous and a miserable place and I mist have Krsna's shelter now, I cannot wait, to that extent sound vibration of Krsna will awaken realization, detachment and Bhakti.
Krsna has chosen by His sweet will to give more purification to sight, words and service to His devotees than anywhere else in the whole creation.

Two most dangerous obstacles in Bhakti - 1) offenses against vaishnavas & 2) negligence at following regulative principles.

In Kali yuga, duration of life is shortened not so much because insufficient food but because of irregular habits.

In Kali yuga, whole atmosphere is surcharged with faithlessness. (Material sense gratification is standard of civilization)

Kali yuga is so much saturated with vicious habits that there is a great fight at the slightest of misunderstanding.
Devotees should be HELPING AND FORGIVING.

Genuine spiritual movement should forgive and encourage.

Familiarity leads to lack of Gratitude.

Devotee is ready to take risk of accepting responsibility based on faith on Krsna.

Simply performing devotional activities will not impart devotion to others but our consciousness should be absorbed.

Difficulties coming from Karma will give us samskaras which will further impel us to perform sinful acts, but difficulties coming from Krsna will purify us.

Compassion without detachment is attachment to the bodily platform.

Loving service is the means to show our gratitude.

Service attitude + enthusiastic listening = Improved spiritual condition.
