Vaishnava Frame of Mind
'This is Vaishnavism; this is humility and giving honour to others. The conception is very nice. I heard it from my Guru Maharaj. We must serve Nitai and Gaura, Nityananda means Guru-tattva, without service to the Guru we cannot get service to the Lord.'

Sometimes, because of our bad karma or some bad association, Maya Devi
takes our time and uses it for her service.

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