Quotes Of The Day

Niranjana Swami
Nectar of Lockdown, Volume 1, p. 106

Haridasa Thakura experienced Krishna’s presence in His name constantly. Because of that, he could be fearless—not as a ksatriya in battle—but because he could see Krishna’s hand behind everything and His presence in everything. One gets this state of fearlessness and comfort as he makes progress in Krishna consciousness.

Srila Prabhupada
Lecture on Bhagavad-gita 7.1, Calcutta, January 27, 1973

Yogi's business does not mean simply have some gymnastic or bodily exercise and keep the body fit for sense enjoyment. That is not the purpose of yoga. Yoga means connecting. We are now, or we are now disconnected. Or it is not disconnected. We are now forgotten our intimate relationship with God. We cannot be disconnected. That is not possible. Because we are part and parcel of the Supreme Lord, there cannot be disconnection. Just like father and son. The son may go out of home, forget his father and mother for many years, but the connection between the son and the father and the mother is never disconnected. That is not possible. As soon as the son comes home, although the son was absent for many, many years, the father receives him, the mother receives him with affection. And immediately the paternal relationship, affection, immediately established.
