You’ll build the zeal and courage if you regulate your life with proper sadhana or devotional practices.

In either constitutional or conditional duties, people have to generate ideas to be able to forge ahead. In a conditional setting, improvisations could create further complications in life whereas the improvisation of the self-realized Vaisnava Vedantist brings succor to the world.

Although making mistakes is considered as one of the deficiencies of human life, people would hurl stones at us if we’re bold enough to make them. Let’s look before we leap.

Whatever action we want to take, we must ask ourselves, “What are the risk factors?” And we must strategize how to overcome such hurdles. We can’t afford to make mistakes in this globalized era and expect no feedback.

Legally incriminating words must be avoided when dealing with people in the age of anxiety and quarrels. We just have to be sure we’re not emotionally abusing anyone because there are risk factors involved.

Bulletproof presentation is very essential when trying to cultivate people in Krishna consciousness.

If things don’t work as expected, we’ve to work things out. We can’t afford to sit back and query, “Where is the structure in place to address our needs?” We’ve to improvise.

Message from His Holiness.

Love, love, love. Mortals seek for love because we had a loving relationship with Krishna in our original pure state in the spiritual world. However, when we entered the material world, our emotion of love was catalyzed to lust due to contact with the mode of passion. That original love can be revived in devotional service to Lord Krishna. And chanting Krishna’s names is the core of devotional service.

Your servant,

Bhakti Vasudeva Swami
