asadhu-sange bhai krsna-nama nahi haya
namaksara bahiraya bate tabu nama kabhu naya 
Brother, the Name of Krishna never appears in bad association: the letters of
the Name may appear, but the Name never does.
kabhu namabhasa haya, sada nama-aparadha
e saba janibe bhai krsna-bhaktira badha 
Sometimes a semblance of the Name appears, but offences to the Name always
do. Know both of these, brother, to be obstacles to devotion to Krishna.
How to serve the Name (nama-bhajana-pranali)
yadi karibe krsna-nama sadhu-sanga kara
bhukti-mukti-siddhi-vanchha dure parihara 
If you want to chant the Name of Krishna, then associate with sadhus and
leave behind the desires for enjoyment, liberation, and supernatural
"dasa-aparadha" tyaja mana apamana
anasaktye visaya bhunja ara laha krsna-nama 
Give up the ten offences, honour, and dishonour, tolerate the world with
detachment, and chant the Name of Krishna.
We should not worry: whether somebody gives me respect or not, whether they
pay obeisance to me or not, whether somebody says something bad to me, it is
all OK. We must be detached from this world—my body, my life, family,
my house, my children, friends, etc.—be detached and chant the Holy
Name. We can take care of the parents, children, and do our duty, but we must
be detached. Remember it.
krsna-bhaktira anukula saba karaha svikara
krsna-bhaktira pratikula saba kara parihara 
Accept everything favourable to devotion to Krishna, and reject everything
unfavourable to devotion to Krishna.
jnana-yoga-chesta chhada ara karma-sanga
markata-vairagya tyaja yate deha-ranga 
Give up attachment to material activity and endeavours based on knowledge and
yoga. Avoid 'monkey renunciation', in which there is only bodily
False renunciates show to the people, "See
how detached I am? I do not need any clothes, I do not wear any clothes!" but monkeys too do not wear clothes.
krsna amaya pale rakhe jana sarva-kala
atma-nivedana-dainye ghuchao janjala 
Always know, "Krishna protects and maintains me." Put an end to your troubles
through self-surrender and humility.
Krishna protects me, nobody else. We forget that, we think our mother, father
will protect us, we think a doctor can protect us, but the protector is
Krishna! We must surrender to Krishna, then all troubles will go away.
'On your birthday you can ask the Lord, ask Gurudev only, 'Prabhu, please
engage me more and more in serving You. I am a fallen soul, I have no quality
or qualification, but You can engage me.' This is the way to celebrate a
birthday, by doing Guru-puja..'
