Whatever you do for Krsna, even insignificant, you can experience Krsna's protection and reciprocation. He is in everybody's heart. He reciprocates not only with the big devotees, but also with insignificant devotees. That is His nature and this is what He wants to be known - that He is bhrtya-vasyata, subordinate to His servants

"Somehow or other everyone can manage to perform such a *yajna* (sankirtan) and distribute *prasadam* to the people in general. That is quite sufficient for this age of Kali. The Hare Krishna Movement is based on the principle: chant Hare Krishna mantra at every moment, both inside and outside of the temples, and, as far as possible, distribute *prasadam*

So this Krishna consciousness movement is very great movement, more valuable than the conception of Lord Siva or Lord Brahma, because it is given by Krishna personally, Caitanya Mahaprabhu. So do not try to see Krishna in His virat form. Simply try to serve Him in humble position. Then your life will be successful.

Human energy should be properly utilized in developing the finer senses for spiritual understanding, in which lies the solution of life. Fruits, flowers, beautiful gardens, parks and reservoirs of water with ducks and swans playing in the midst of lotus flowers, and cows giving sufficient milk and butter are essential for developing the finer tissues of the human body
