‘Those favoured by God find their paths set by thorns’

‘There is no peace or happiness in our worldly life.  Circumstances create turmoil and annoyance’

‘As dalliance with the body in luxury increases, so wanes the spirit of service to the Lord’

‘Let me not desire anything but the highest good for my worst enemies’

‘To recite the name of Sri Krsna is bhakti

‘A devotee feels the presence of God everywhere, but one averse to the Lord denies His existence everywhere’.

‘We are put to test and trial in this world.  Only those who attend the kirtan of the devotees can succeed’

‘The Lord Gaurasundara, puts His devotees in various difficulties and associations to test their patience and strength of mind.  Success depends on their good fortune’

‘Look within.  Amend yourself, rather than pry into the frailties of others’

‘When faults in others misguide and delude you – have patience, introspect, find faults in yourself.  Know that others cannot harm you unless  you harm yourself’

How to please the Dhama: 1. print books; 2. nama-hatta; and, 3. distribute literature.
