Essence: “We are not the body, but spirit, living spark within this body. We really are somebody, part of God’s family and he loves us. He reciprocates equally with all living entities. But if we leave Spiritual World and are lost in this material world, we are nobody. If we want to be happy we have to go back to Spiritual World…That should be our ultimate goal of life…What is the process to return to Spiritual World? The easiest and most sublime process to awaken love for God is to chant his Holy Names.”

Be Enthusiastic

Essence: “We are out here on the order of Guru and Gauranga. We are out here to deliver these people from repetition of birth and death. And to give them Krishna. You have to overcome lethargy due to humid conditions. I think more than any thing else, it is seeing the devotees happy and enlivened in Krishna consciousness, that brings people to the festival. So be enthusiastic.”

Cross Over the Line

Verse: Srimad Bhagavatham – 7.7.43

Essence: “We are in between the two – material enjoyment and spiritual enjoyment. But at some point in our Krishna Consciousness, we have to cross over the line..Enough is enough fully surrender to Krishna. We have to make that decision – no more sense gratification only Krishna Consciousness. It will come some stage in our life, where we have to cross over.”

Overcome Addiction to Sense gratification

Verse: Srimad Bhagavatham – 7.7.38

Essence: “This process chanting, hearing is so easy, why don’t people take it? Because they are addicted to sense gratification. We have to help them overcome this addiction. It is very easy they simply have to hear and chant. And that is our life as tour devotees – Just sit and chant Hare Krishna and go out on streets and dance to the Holy Names.”

Please be there!

Essence: “Unless you regularly come to the morning program, you will lose spiritual strength and you won’t be able to continue to the end. One rule is when you get back in the night go straight to bed. Email, those things, talking walking around, laughing, joking we don’t have time to do that. This is a very intense program”.

Discover the hidden treasure

Essence: “…Love of Godhead is hidden in the hearts of Pure devotees. But it has to be discovered and enjoyed by sincere seekers of Absolute Truth….Qualified or Unqualified, ignorant or knowledgeable, what ever we may be, if we just join the kirtan of our Spiritual Master, and loudly chant the Holy names of the Lord for benefit of others, eventually cheto darpana marjanam, our hearts will become purified and by Guru’s grace everything we need to know about Krishna will be revealed.”
