Like a crying baby

“Your language will go to your mother. Jiva Goswami Prabhu has given this hope. You may be a three-month-old baby, or a one-month-old baby, but through your expression of crying or something your mother will understand whether you are hungry or not. ... When we chant the Holy Name of the Lord, He will understand that we cannot avoid offences, and so He Himself will give His divine help to us, and our offences will go through chanting.”

The real prescription

“They want to know how many hands Mahavishnu has, they want to know how many legs Nrsimhadev has, they want to know how Nrsimhadev is eating ... someone is telling, “This scripture said this, this scripture said that”—but nothing will come for my spiritual benefit!” Srila Gurudev speaks with humour and caution on the knowledge-seeking attempt.
