1. no longer indebted

    We are in so many ways indebted. Our obligations are there. But sarvatmana yah saranam saranyam gato mukundam, na rni na kinkarah.

So if one surrenders fully unto Krsna […]
  2. Try to repay

    If Krsna does not supply you this light, sunlight, you will die. But He does not charge anything.

  6. Imitators fall

    We should take any lila of Krsna as Supreme. Not that simply the most confidential… The vrndavana-lila, Krsna’s lila with the gopis, is the most confidential lila. We should not entertain this confidential lila unless we are liberated. It is a very difficult subject. And because they cannot understand what is Krsna’s lila, they imitate, […]

    Husband and wife dying together, it is admitted because asakti [attachment] is there. That asakti will help him, that the wife will become a husband next life, and the husband will become wife next. And in that way they’ll have to take birth again.
