ŚrīKṛṣṇa, the Personality of Godhead, who is the Paramātmā [Supersoul] in everyone's heart and the benefactor of the truthful devotee, cleanses desire for material enjoyment from the heart of the devotee who has developed the urge to hear His messages, which are in themselves virtuous when properly heard and chanted.

  • The holy name of the Lord has all the potencies of the Lord and that He has endowed His innumerable names with the same potency.

  • Anyone can chant the holy name with attention and reverence at his convenience.

  • The Lord is more anxious to take us back into His kingdom than we can desire.

  • One can develop the taste for chanting by serving the pure devotee of the Lord.

  • Many stalwarts in the devotional line fell victim to the allurements of Maya.

  • The whole process becomes easy when one takes to Krishna’s shelter

By regular attendance in classes on the Bhāgavatam and by rendering of service to the pure devotee, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving service unto the Personality of Godhead, who is praised with transcendental songs, is established as an irrevocable fact.

Association of bhagavatas
Association of Bhagavatas

  • The remedy for all inauspiciousness is the association of Bhagavatas.

  • Book Bhagavata and person Bhagavata are identical.

  • The devotee Bhāgavata is a direct representative of Bhagavān, the Personality of Godhead.

  • Narada’s menial service to the sages in his previous life.

  • The messages of the book Bhāgavata, therefore, have to be received from the devotee Bhāgavata.

As soon as irrevocable loving service is established in the heart, the effects of nature's modes of passion and ignorance, such as lust, desire and hankering, disappear from the heart. Then the devotee is established in goodness, and he becomes completely happy.

Love for krishna brings all goodness
Love for Krishna brings all goodness

  • brahma-bhūta or ātmānanda– the state of self realization.

  • Devotional service is not inactivity, but the unalloyed activity of the soul.

  • Only in the state of śuddha-sattvaone can always see Kṛṣṇa eye to eye by dint of pure affection for the Lord.

  • A devotee is always in the mode of unalloyed goodness; therefore he harms no one.

  • A devotee is always qualified with all the good qualities of God. Quantitatively such qualifications may be different, but qualitatively both the Lord and His devotee are one and the same.

Thus established in the mode of unalloyed goodness, the man whose mind has been enlivened by contact with devotional service to the Lord gains positive scientific knowledge of the Personality of Godhead in the stage of liberation from all material association.

Krishna consciousness a scientific process
Krishna Consciousness – A Scientific process

  • Scientific knowledge of ŚrīKṛṣṇa is understood only by the process of devotional service (bhakti-yoga).

  • Perfection of human life is attained when one can understand that he is not the product of matter but is in fact spirit.

  • One cannot be a devotee unless one at least qualifies as a brāhmaṇa.

  • A pure Vaiṣṇava is a liberated soul and is transcendental even to the position of a brāhmaṇa.

Thus the knot in the heart is pierced, and all misgivings are cut to pieces. The chain of fruitive actions is terminated when one sees the self as master.

  • ŚrīKṛṣṇa is like the sun, and the materialistic speculations about the Absolute Truth are like the darkest midnight.

  • The devotee cannot remain in darkness, and because a devotee is enlightened by the Personality of Godhead, his knowledge is certainly perfect.

  • Perfect knowledge is called paramparā, or deductive knowledge coming down from the authority.

  • This knot is called ahaṅkāra, and it falsely obliges a living being to become identified with matter.

  • In material existence, a living being creates his own chain of fruitivework.

  • But as soon as he engages himself in the loving service of the Lord, he at once becomes free from the chain of karma. His actions no longer create any reaction.
