• Be Yourself

    The more there is a difference between who you are and how you want people to see you, the more you will be concerned about looking Krsna consciousness rather than being Krsna conscious.

  • The pain of negligence

    If you are hesitant to deal with your problems, then remember that  struggling year after year with obstacles that are holding you down is much more painful and difficult than doing the work to uproot them.

  • We Always Have Choices

    We are all endowed with free will. Therefore, we always have the power to think and behave differently, and thus create more desirable outcomes.

  • Offering Krsna your attachments

    When strong material desires and attachments appear in your heart, see it as Krishna’s personal test. Krsna is now giving you the opportunity to show your devotion by offering Him something you really want to keep. “Here Krishna, I want to offer You something that is very special to me, my material attachments.”

  • Devotees are saintly

    “Even if a devotee commits the most abominable actions, he is to be considered saintly because he is properly situated.” As you will say, “To err is human,” so in the neophyte stage we may always expect some discrepancies are there. Kindly see the things in this light and forgive their small mistakes. The big thing is they have given their life, everything to Krishna — that is never a mistake. (Srila Prabhupada, Letter April 30, 1973)
