Dandavats! All Glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

Hare KrishnaBy His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Because of my state of complete foolishness and paucity of pious activities, although the Lord offered me His personal service, I wanted material name, fame and prosperity. The conclusion is that anyone who is engaged in the loving service of the Lord should never ask for material prosperity from the Lord.

One should never climb into a tree, grasp the unripe fruits and forcibly pull them off. Similarly, the followers of Srila Rupa Gosvami never abolish the initial systematic process of devotional service. The rupanugas never teach that the perfection of devotion can be reached by abandoning the consecutive order of development stages on the path. (Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada; Prakrita Rasa Shata Dushani). The followers of Srila Rupa Gosvami never leave the path of the great devotees [mahajanas] and run to pursue a ‘new’ path. One should never mistakenly call materi...

Everyday to enquire then we will be able to go beyond the modes of nature, Ahankar. In other words, unless one is situated properly in this understanding in this culture, why am I infected by external modes of nature? It is very powerful. It is very powerful. You see these 3 modes Sattva, Raja and Tama, 3 gunas of this prakriti are so powerful that even the most advanced great soul is liable to be affecte...

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.

Srila Sanatana Gosvami comments that because in Vrndavana Krsna goes barefoot and can thus directly mark the earth with the symbols of His lotus feet, that transcendental land is even more glorious than Vaikuntha, where Visnu wears slippers.

Krsna can fulfill any purpose you desire. It is not very difficult for Him, because He is almighty, full with all opulences. So if you want something, material happiness, from Krsna, it is not very difficult for Krsna. He can give you mukti even. But to ask from Krsna anything else than bhakti is foolishness.

For iron to be attracted by a magnet is natural. Similarly, for all living entities to be attracted toward Krsna is natural, and therefore the Lord's real name is Krsna, meaning He who attracts everyone and everything.

Prabhupada: Yes. But our position is that we are above varnasrama. But for management or ideal society, we are introducing this. We, so far we are concerned, Krsna conscious men, we are above varnasrama.
