If there is a method for advancing quickly, what is it? The beauty of it is, anyone can do it - married or unmarried, in or out of the temple, renounced or steeped in bhoga-tyaga. But one has to be prepared, because the weapon of detachment – asanga-sastrena BG.15.3, will develop as a natural consequence of sincere chanting.

Hare KrishnaFrom the Mediator's Sanga Conference

The only real possession for a devotee is whatever sincerity they can muster up in Srila Prabhupada's service. And even though the person criticizing may not be questioning the other's sincerity, it is often taken that way. The result: We feel discouraged, we sometime lash back at the critic, and often we think: "I'm doing all this hard work, and all I'm getting is questioned and criticized. Is it worth it? Is serving in ISKCON worth it?"

Hare KrishnaBy Praghosa dasa

So giving names, having names and using names are all essential for increasing the personal touch.. Of course as devotees we receive even more mercy when we are given names related to Krsna and His devotees at the time of initiation. These names not only serve as a way of identifying us but they also remind us of the supreme Lord and His devotees and can award us unlimited spiritual benefit, as in the case of Ajamila.

Hare KrishnaBy Kumari Priya Dasi

Religious life imparts to us the vision to see everyone as, in essence, a beloved servant of God. Yet so often the differences between religions underline a feeling of “the other” that turns those who should be friends into enemies. What often follows is behaviour that may not seem very religious at all.

Hare KrishnaBy Tamohara dasa

It is said that the Lord's merciful energy is subordinate to His willing power, but in the case of Sriman Mahaprabhu it is the reverse. Mahaprabhu has granted this independence to his krpa-shakti. Mahaprabhu would not have distributed His prema, the most confidential secret, to one and all indiscriminately, if He had not given this independence to His krpa shaktri.

Hare KrishnaBy Satyaraja Dasa

The idea is to absorb one's senses in Krishna -- to see his form, to taste food and to smell incense that is offered to him, to read about his pastimes and, mostly, to hear the chanting of his names. This creates a sort of "wrap-around awareness" that engulfs you in the spiritual world. And by being so engulfed, you remember what you have long forgotten.

He would then keep them on His pillow (close to His nose) all night. The following morning, I would find the flowers gently laying on the pillow exactly where they had been the night before. The flowers looked as fresh and fragrant as ever, looking as if they had just been picked.
