We are put to test and trial in this world. Only those who attend the kirtana of the devotees can succeed.

- Every spot on earth where discourses on God are held is a place of pilgrimage.

- Possession of objects not related to Krsna is our main malady.

- Let me not desire anything but the highest good for my worst enemies.

- As dalliance with the body in luxury increases, so wanes the spirit of service of the Lord.

- Those favored by God find their paths set by thorns.

- There is no peace or happiness in our worldly life. Circumstances create turmoil and annoyance.

- Chant the mahamantra loudly and with attachment. This will drive away inertia, worldly evils and pests.

- Be indifferent to bazaar gossip, stick firmly to your cherished goals, no lack or impediments of the world will ever stand in your way.

- Pay due respects to the extroverts of the world, but do not be appreciative of their manners and conduct. They are to be shaken off from your mind.

From a lecture by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur



The world is in no need of any reformer. The world has a very competent
person for guiding its minutest happenings. The person who finds that there
is scope for reform of the world himself stands in need of reform. The world
goes on in its own perfect way. No person can deflect it by the breadth of a
hair from the course chalked out for it by providence. . . . What is
necessary is to change our outlook to this very world. . . . The scriptures
declare that it is only necessary to listen with an open mind to the name of
Krishna from the lips of a bona fide devotee. As soon as Krishna enters the
listening ear, He clears up the vision of the listener so that he no longer
has any ambition of ever-acting the part of a reformer of any other person,
because he finds that nobody is left without the very highest guidance. It
is therefore his own reform by the grace of God, whose supreme necessity and
nature he is increasingly able to realize by the eternally continuing mercy
of the Supreme Lord.
