Apr 21 2014 Seed Of Frustration

By Srila Prabhupada

So therefore the real thing is that everything belongs to Krsna. We are artificially enjoying the stolen property. Therefore if you go on enjoying like that, then this frustration will come. But before coming to that frustration, if we return this property to Krsna, then we become happy. So best thing is to return everything to Krsna. This is Krsna consciousness. And you will not be a loser. You will be gainer, just like Bali Maharaja. Actually, if you think, everything belongs to Krsna. Nothing belongs to you. This is maya. Krsna's property you are thinking, "mine."


Apr 16 2014 Surrender

By Srila Prabhupada

If I am thinking, "I am suffering," it is also Krsna's grace. We should take like that. Even in my consideration, I am in a position which is apparently suffering, we must accept as Krsna's grace: "All right, I have surrendered to Krsna. If Krsna is giving me suffering, that's all right." That is surrender. "Oh, I have surrendered to Krsna, and now Krsna is giving me suffering? Oh, leave Krsna consciousness." That is not surrender. Surrender means in any condition you'll remain surrendered.


Apr 12 2014 Chant Hare Krishna—–No Loss

By Srila Prabhupada

So Narayana is so kind that consciously or unconsciously, if you chant the holy name of the Lord, it goes to your credit. Just like sometimes when you walk in the street, people say "Hare Krsna!" So this is also going to their credit. When they offer their respect to a Vaisnava, that goes to their credit. When one comes in this temple, offers his obeisances, it goes to their credit.


Apr 10 2014 These are the tests

By Srila Prabhupada
