Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.10 – Sun 29 May 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.10 – Devahūti did not personally see Kardama Muni, but she heard about him from the authority of Nārada Muni. She became fixed in her heart that she would marry him. Hearing from an authority is a better experience than gaining personal understanding.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.9 – Sat 28 May 2016

Srīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.9 – Svāyambhuva Manu was trying to find a suitable bride for his daughter Devahuti. This is a good example of arranged marriage where the desire of the girl is given due consideration. In this way parents protect their daughter and marry her to a suitable husband. Just as parents protect their children, as an institution ISKCON is also taking measures to protect women and children from being abused. It is the collective responsibility of every member to protect women and children from domestic violence and child abuse.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.8 – Fri 27 May 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.8 – When a disciple is perfectly in consonance with the spiritual master, having received his message and executed it perfectly and sincerely, he has a right to ask a particular favor from the spiritual master. Generally a pure devotee of the Lord or a pure disciple of a bona fide spiritual master does not ask any favor either from the Lord or the spiritual master, but even if there is a need to ask a favor from the spiritual master, one cannot ask that favor without satisfying him fully.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.7 – Thu 26 May 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.7 – A bona fide spiritual master knows the nature of a particular man and the duties he can perform in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, and he instructs him in that way. One person is advised to serve in the Deities’ room, another is advised to perform editorial work, another is advised to do preaching work, and another is advised to serve in the cooking department. There are different departments of activity in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, and a spiritual master trains him in such a way that by his tendency to act he becomes perfect.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.6 – Wed 25 May 2016

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 3.22.6 – Spiritual success is not possible simply by following the rituals of religion or simply by converting oneself into a sannyāsī or offering sacrifices as recommended in the scriptures. These methods are undoubtedly helpful for spiritual realization, but the real effect is brought about by the grace of a mahātmā. The perfection of transcendental life can be achieved simply by touching the holy dust of the lotus feet of a holy man.
