Srila Sridhar Maharaj discusses this important issue.
“Before producing a child, labour pain will come to the mother. But the mother happily wants to tolerate that labour pain. Every mother knows labour pain is very heavy, but again they want to produce a child. Then pain is not always very painful in the heart.”
The positive and progressive response to the challenges we face.
“There are many things that we may not understand in our young age, but when we get experience and old age, then many things will become clear in front of us. Time can give us some consciousness.”
“When Mahaprabhu said that there is no alternative other than chanting the Holy Name of the Lord, then it is not necessary to go left or right or anywhere else. Be steady, be faithful, and try, and success must come to you.”
“Ego is the greatest cover and we cannot easily remove that cover, but it is necessary to remove it, and then we will see that Krishna is very near to me.”
“It will not be possible to chant the Holy Name without offence immediately. We will become habituated with chanting, chanting, chanting, chanting, and we will chant with the mood of calling, 'He Hare, he Krishna, please appear, please give your mercy.' This is the calling mood, and we will not ask for anything.”
“We must be sincere and we must be chaste in the line of Krishna consciousness. That means our faith must be strong: ‘I must get it, today or tomorrow.’ If the result is not coming then I must try to search within me, ‘Where is my fault?’ And if we will try to understand where our fault is then mercifully, by the grace of Krishna, it will appear to me.”
