A grhastha’s first duty

Posted by on May 11, 2018 in Recent Articles | 0 comments

A grhastha’s first duty is to be fully dependent on Vasudeva, Krsna, and to try to satisfy Him in all respects by executing one’s prescribed devotional service.

The beginning of devotional service is sravanam, or hearing. One must hear from the mouths of realized souls. In this way the grhastha’s attraction to his wife and children will gradually...

Extending love to everyone; everything should be carefully done

If we become pure devotee of Krsna, then my love will be extended to everyone. Not only my society, but to everyone. It is not that “This is my children; that is other’s children.” All children. All human being. Not my countrymen — all other countrymen. Not only human being, but even animals also. That is sneha. It is not that “I am safe, and let the animals be killed in the slaughterhouse.” No, that is not love. Love means for everyone. Samah sarvesu bhutesu. Equality to all living...

Devotee: How do you develop a service attitude? Prabhupada: By service. In the material world, if you give service you become tired. But transcendental world if you give service, you more become enthusiastic. Yes. More service. That is happening. I do not pay these boys. Rather, they pay me, and they engage the service.

Posted by on Apr 18, 2018 in Recent Articles | 0 comments

Everyone should be expert. The leaders must be expert and the worker must be expert so that they may follow the instruction of the leader. If the leader says something and the workers, “Hm, I shall consider it, later on,” then how will the leader execute his leadership?
