Power of Proper Practice

রাধা-ভজনে যদি মতি নাহি ভেলা ।
কৃষ্ণ-ভজন তব অকারণ গেলা ॥

radha-bhajane yadi mati nahi bhela
krsna-bhajana tava akarana gela

"If you do not worship Srimati Radharani, your worship of Krishna is nothing."

What kind of Krishna's sakti is Srimati Radhika?

Devotee: Hladini-sakti...

Hladini-sakti Sri Radhika...

If you practise properly, if you can continuously practise every day, then you can be perfect, but if you do not practise, everything will be damaged and rust will come... I saw it.

When I go for preaching, preaching means a class in the morning, bhoga arati at noon, and a class in the evening (this is the main class). In the morning, we do some kirtan locally, at the house where we are staying, it is necessary show them how to practise. I saw yesterday they did it happily themselves now, it was not necessary to show anymore. If you can practise like this, it is good.

But if you start neglecting your practice, then slowly-slowly rust will come and maya will attack you. Maya is very powerful, and you cannot fight Maya—you cannot defeat Maya Devi, you will be defeated by Maya Devi. It happens because of not good association. If you keep bad association, your strength will decrease.

You can see the example of **. He is a very jolly boy, does very lovely service, he did many things, but because at the place where he lived he only slept and ate and he did not practise or make any programme, then maya attacked him and he went to jail... Why did he go to jail? This is also maya. I told him, "Stay here." He could become a very good and independent servitor, but he neglected it...

You know that there are sixty-four bhaktyanga (parts of practising life)—from the sixty-four practices main are nine, from these nine main are five, and from these five main sravan and kirtan. If you do not engage in sravan and kirtan, you will become rusty. Sravan and kirtan are your main things. Can you show me anyone who has been doing sravan and kirtan continuously and fell down? No one. Sometimes maya attacks us, but Krishna said, "I am giving a special light in your heart by which that darkness will be removed..."

Cast Off Prejudice
'In India, people always look at your caste, they differentiate between brahmins, ksatriyas, vaisyas, and sudras. They are proud and criticise, 'Oh, I am a sannyasi, you are just a householder.' Gurudev told once a story showing that it is not good to do like this...'


Nitai gunamani amara
'Nitai cut a canal into the sealed ocean of mercy and a flood of nectarean divine love spread to every home.'
নিতাই গুণমণি আমার

Then think how much affection the gopis of Vraja have for Krishna. Their heart is full of
Krishna, they have given their mind, their whole body, everything to Krishna, to the Lord.
