Surrendered Soul's Appeal
"A jiva soul is greater than Maya because it worships the Lord, but Maya is very powerful as she gets much power from the Lord. So, sometimes a jiva soul that is covered by the illusory environment gets caught in the net of Maya..."

Wrong Endeavour
"Proper devotees pass their time with Krishna-katha, and at all other times they chant the Holy Name or think about their service, about spiritual things. A person may be doing some pious activities, but it is not devotion. Bhakti means doing service to the Lord under the guidance of a guru."

Atyahara
"I used to think before that atyahara means eating too much, but here Srila Rupa Goswami and Srila Bhaktivinod Thakur explain it very nicely. If you translate the word 'atyahara', it means 'eating too much', but it is not only that."

Pure Kirtan Comes from Pure Heart
"Kirtan is not singing. Kirtan means making the Lord happy. You must be a proper, honest disciple. Your heart must be open. If you have something in your heart, if your heart is dirty or there are many obstacles in your heart, then you will not be able to hear Gurudev properly—it will go into one ear and out the other."

"We must be like soldiers—we must be always ready to serve the Lord, to serve Gurudev's mission. We do not come to judge who is a Vaishnav and who is not a Vaishnav—we cannot understand it, neither is it our duty to do it. Our main question is how much we can do for the service to our Guru and Vaishnav."
