A Humble Heart
'It is necessary to give honour to others. If you make so many offences, your heart becomes as hard as a thunderbolt, and as a result, kirtan, chanting of the Holy Name will not come to your mouth.'

 

Sri Sri Prema-Vivarta
“Remember, glorify, and serve the Lord, and be kind to all beings. Do all this as a proper renunciant.”

Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur said that pratistha is like stool of a pig. You can tolerate the stool
of a human, but the stool of a pig has a very bad smell. Pratistha is very dangerous.

"HUMILITY, TOLERANCE, GIVING HONOUR TO OTHERS | HUMILITY, TOLERANCE, GIVING HONOUR TO OTHERS"
