Quotes Of The Day

Niranjana Swami
Lectures from a Disciple, Vol. 1, p. 197

“Vaisnava” means servant of the Vaisnava. A Vaisnava always meditates on serving guru. Everything a Vaisnava does is intended as an act of service, and because a Vaisnava is always serving the guru’s mood, preaching becomes successful. When this dynamic is intact, the Lord agrees to come.

Srila Prabhupada
Lecture on Bhagavad-gita 13.4, Bombay, September 27, 1973

That is our avidya. Because we do not know, in ignorance, in spite of the Supreme Soul, Supersoul is forbidding, "Don't do this," still, we shall do it. That is called anumanta. We cannot do anything without the sanction of the Supersoul, but when we insist that "I must do it," then He says, "All right, you do it, but you'll suffer your sequence. My word is, Supersoul order is, that “You give up all this nonsense. Simply surrender unto Me. I will give you all protection.” But no, that he'll not do.
