If The Whole World Is Against You – No Harm

If your Kṛṣṇa consciousness is developing then your life is successful. If not—if you are very wealthy and you have a high position and are very beautiful and you have all good qualities, but this quality is not there, then Kṛṣṇa consciousness is not there—then there is no use of this life.

In this life you should only try to develop your Kṛṣṇa consciousness. If the whole world is against you—no harm.

These are the teachings of Śrīla Rūpa-Raghunātha and our Guru-paramparā. Don’t try to buy bhakti by wealth and money. By service. Pure heart. Internal service to Gurudeva. And you should always remember. What should we remember? Kṛṣṇa has made some promises. Those who are always continuously chanting and remembering—they have no time to maintain themselves and family— Kṛṣṇa will come. Kṛṣṇa has promised. Then why fear? If we have strong faith in His words, then Kṛṣṇa—certainly He is bound to fulfill His promise. All others may give up their promise, but He cannot. We should try to realize all these things and always be very conscious to be a high-class devotee.

Rādhā-dāsyam

Kṛṣṇa Himself followed this Keśava-vrata to develop relationship with the Vraja-devīs. He thought, “I am Viṣṇu, I am Nārāyaṇa, Nṛsiṁha, Rāma,...

Fearless Heroes – Bhagavad Gita

He said, "Bhīma only has a little power. Sometimes he goes off and collects a new wife. In the jungle he had a son with Hidimba, a rākṣasī. Sometimes he meets with Draupadī and sometimes any other. He doesn't have any control of himself and doesn't follow any rules and regulations." Some people say, "I am a male, how can I be in love with God, the Supreme Male." Yet if I consider the śakti I possess; who is its proprietor? All śakti is the property of God. Therefore if one has śakti within him, then it will be natural for him to have love for God. That is the innate tendency of śakti. When Kṛṣṇa raised the wheel of the chariot, and ran forward to kill Bhīṣma, Bhīṣma folded his hands and smiled with great love for the Lord. Previously, upon hearing that Kṛṣṇa would not engage in battle during the war Bhīṣma made a vow, "I will not call myself the son of Santanu if I cannot make the Lord raise arms in this battle.” When Duryodhana returned from meeting Kṛṣṇa in Dvārakā he told Bhīṣma, “Keśi’s killer will not fight. He will remain silent in the humble position of a charioteer.”

Srila Svami Prabhupada and Govardhana

In this pastime, Krsna the boatman is playing so wonderfully, and at that point Radhika became frightened and caught hold of Him. This is precisely what Krsna desired. Such attractive krsna-lila is enacted at Giriraja Govardhana. I pray, "Hey Giriraja, please fulfil my desire to witness these pastimes..."

The Saintly Son – 16 June 1996

Become Krsna conscious as of now. You will not be able to take one paisa of the money you are earning when you leave your body. Use your money in doing good. Don’t use it for bad things. Your money should help you to advance in your devotion to Krsna. If a little of our energy is spent in Krsna’s seva, then along with our own lives, even the lives of our children and dynasty will be made auspicious. Hence, understanding this, everyone must engage in Bhagavan’s bhajan from childhood. It is not difficult to do Bhagavan’s bhajan. You can chant Bhagavan’s name during the morning, afternoon, evening, or during the night. You can also chant His name while walking, sneezing, or even while falling down. If a person slips and falls down, then he can chant, “Rama Rama.” Upon seeing stool, he also chants, “Rama Rama,” in disgust. He chants Rama Rama when he is going to sleep. He chants Rama Rama when he wakes up. You should also chant, “Rama Rama,” or “Krsna Krsna.” No money is spent in chanting Bhagavan’s names. But the chanting of Bhagavan’s names is so powerful that it will change your life. Happiness and peace will come to this world. Happiness and peace will not be obtained by your present activities. So, we should do Bhagavan’s bhajan from our childhood.

A Treasure in Waiting – 05 Feb 2013 – Govinda-lilamrta

If we have no relation with līlā-śakti, if She doesn’t help us and come in our heart, then we will never get liberation from mundane activities, māyā līlā. We will not be able to cut this off. Therefore, the guru-varga, our gosvāmīs, gave us a way to make relation with kṛṣṇa-līlā, vraja-līlā. They took some help, power and potency from līlā-śakti, and then wrote about Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa’s pastimes in Vraja and reserved it in the form of granthas. Hearing these pastimes, one will become attached to līlā-śakti, and She will gradually give us entrance. On one side, intense renunciation will arise in the heart, vairāgya, and on the other side there is deep anurāga, intense attraction. Then one will never hear, follow or have any connection with māyā līlā. If one doesn’t establish connection with līlā-śakti and vraja-līlā, then he will make stronger relation with māyā. He will never understand what is kṛṣṇa-līlā, what is Kṛṣṇa’s śakti, Divine Potency. Everything one does will be speculation and imitation.
