Acaryas Quotes Gurudeva said today We Should Have an Aim and Object in Life

We Should Have an Aim and Object in Life

We should have an aim and object in life. Regardless of whoever he may be, if a person doesn’t have an aim and object in life, then he is no better than an animal. All of us want happiness. This is the aim and object of our lives. It is all right that everyone wants happiness. But, the process we adopt cannot give us happiness. Old age and disease will come. Many problems will come in one’s life. You will get a little happiness by family life. But even that will lead to sorrow. Therefore, pure, eternal happiness is not found in this world. A person marries and consumes intoxicants to attain happiness. But happiness is not to be found by the consumption of such substances. Then where can happiness be found? Kṛṣṇa is the embodiment of happiness. By engaging in His bhajana and sevā, you will attain real happiness. You cannot find happiness anywhere else. By engaging in Kṛṣṇa’s bhajana, you will surely attain happiness.

The Story of Vṛtrāsura

Although Vṛtrāsura played the role of a demon, he expressed his great desire to love Kṛṣṇa. Just as a chaste lady who chants and remembers her husband’s glories without any reason or desire for personal gain, so the pure devotee serves Kṛṣṇa. This is a very important teaching of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. This history and that of Śrī Prahlāda Mahārāja are very significant. Hearing about them, we try to imbibe their qualities...

Developing Rādhā-niṣṭha

Pure renunciation is actually a natural distaste for material matters and a taste for the dust of Śrī Rādhā’s lotus feet. Sādhakas who possess exclusive faith in Śrī Rādhā (rādhā-niṣṭhā) are solely attached to the fragrance of Her lotus feet. Without Śrī Rādhā, they have no taste for Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Material happiness seems insignificant to such sādhakas, who have firm attachment for Her lotus feet and who are not slightly inclined toward any other transcendental practice and goal...

Pasankusa Ekadasi

Always chant, remember, and pray, and act under the guidance of the Vaisnavas. Go on parikrama, hear harikatha, do not insult others, and do not listen to other people’s criticism. Always follow in the footsteps of the Vraja-devis. We should pray, “O Ekadasi-devi, O Madhava tithi, O Bhakti janani, please help me. Otherwise, I am collecting anarthas from everywhere, and then I will become as useless as garbage.” Pray to Ekadasi-devi, she will soon bless you with the chance to serve the Vraja-devis...

Papamocani Ekadasi

Ekadasi-devi proclaims, “I will help the conditioned souls remain unaffected by any form of sin that may trouble them. I am ready to fight. No sin will dare torment those who have taken shelter of me. I will cleanse and purify the souls of all sins. I will defeat any form of sin that will try to enter the bhakta’s hearts. I will give the bhaktas ekadasa-bhava and siddha-pranali. I will give the souls the tendency to serve God. From early morning to evening, I will help the souls engage...

They Don’t Know Anything – 20 May 1996, U.K.

Aprakrta means a transcendental abode of Radha-Krsna, gopas, gopis, Nanda-Yasoda, and all the Vrajavasis. This is called aprakrta knowledge and the love and affection there is visuddha (immaculately pure). Caitanya Mahaprabhu has...
