...Devotion to God is attained by associating with those who serve both Him and His devotees. They have made service to God the very essence of their life. They have made the narrations of the names, appearance, attributes and sports of God the mainstay of their existence and they are always engaged in discoursing about them...

...A person who always remains busy with his own happiness and freedom, leaving aside service to Hari, guru and Vaisnavas, will never be the recipient of any service from others, despite his desire for it. Instead, he will be neglected and disliked by all. On the other hand, millions upon millions of people, and even Mahaprabhu Himself, will be ready to serve that person who...

...It is essential, however, that we understand the true significance of Sri Vyasa-puja. Merely placing a garland on the neck of Sri Guru or offering at his feet a few flowers and fruits, some money, sweets, or cloth does not mean that real worship of the guru has been performed.

...Why did Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu praise this krsna-sankirtanam? Sri-krsna-sankirtanam is the best teaching He delivered. There is no parallel to this sri-krsna-sankirtanam.

by Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada

Within this world, only those who attend to Sri Bhagavan's holy name (nama), His abode (dhama) and His desires (kama) are truly worthy of adoration. No being can extricate himself from misunderstanding, which arises from maya, without serving sri-nama. The result of serving sri-nama is that one will be freed from all forms of prejudice and ...

May the son of Srimati Saci-devi, Sri Gaurahari, forever manifest spontaneously within the innermost core of your heart.
