The Highest Conception of Conduct

So Arjuna, you take advantage of this and boldly declare to the public that My devotee who gives himself wholly unto Me can never come to ruination. Even if he may be seen to be outwardly doing something wrong – he will be saved. His successful life is assured. By this declaration, you will get the benefit of becoming righteous and have the chance of attaining eternal spiritual peace. Whoever can understand this and has the courage to declare that My exclusive devotee is never subject to ruination – he, in turn, gets his chance to come to this path of exclusive devotion, and he will attain eternal peace.”

Lalita-devi sometimes even chastises Krsna boldly. She takes risks by reproaching Krsna, “You do not know the dignity of my Mistress.”Sometimes Radharani feels ashamed within Her mind. She thinks, “What does He say about Me?” Lalita-devi replies, “This shame is very bad. You just sit quietly. You do not know Your own interest. I know what is Your interest, Your position.

Through Krishna consciousness we have connected with the highest object of life, the highest fulfillment of life—what price are we ready to pay for that? It is inconceivable. Whatever little demands may be expected from us, we must accept with a smiling face, considering the highest goal. If we are really confident, if we have faith in our bright future, then we can gladly pay what little price nature wants to take from us.

Oh Baba! Bolacche-re!

In spite of daily hearing the warning bells of the thunderous declarations from Sri Gaudiya Matha and witnessing all kinds of endeavors by the matha residents to instill and nurture within our hapless sick minds the seeds of nectarean hari-katha, and endeavoring to establish a loving connection with God – still there is a gulf of difference between that which we are knowingly rejecting in favor of some other illusory charm!

Levels of God Realisation

The gradation of transcendental realisation has been explained by Srila Sanatan Goswami in his book Brhad Bhagavatamrta.
