Spiritual Quotes by Swami Gaurangapada: 61-70

61.

"Speaking of God as having no form or no intelligence makes it easy to make ourselves accountable to no one but ourselves for whatever we whimsically do and to cast all inhibitions to the wind. This is the beginning of animal life as animals also live and act simply for satisfying their random impulses."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

 

62.

"If all will experience ultimate oneness after death irrespective of one's actions as some foolishly suggest, the simple and basic law of karma and science - for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction - looses meaning totally."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

 

63.

"To think of becoming nothing or void also requires some brain just like it requires to have a desire to become desireless. Thus factually the soul can never become nothing or void as some suggest because it is the eternal part and parcel of God."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

 

64.

"Those who want to become nothing or void or one with God are unceremoniously commiting the suicide of their soul due to their vain attempt at denying the eternal spiritual uniqueness of their own soul."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

 

65.

"When a flower is picked, the bush automatically produces many more flowers to replace those which have been lost. Similarly, even a little sacrifice in the service of Lord Gauranga-Krishna is returned by the Lord in unlimited abundance."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

 

66.

"The croaking frog is food for the snake similarly the tongue which does not glorify the Lord and His Holy Names will become the cause of our death as it takes away our life span."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

"When they see us chanting, some tell us that life is not meant simply for vibrating some words but for enjoyment. What they don't understand is that the supreme process for the topmost enjoyment of the soul in this world is to always remain in harmony with the Lord by constantly vibrating, singing and chanting His Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

 

68.

"Some people struggle very sincerely to get rid of their bad qualities. But they should remember that when the sun rises, the night runs and hides in the caves and mountains. Similarly, when they will become devotees of the Lord and let the sun of the Holy Names rise in their heart, then they will find themselves automatically freed from the vices born out of the darkness of ignorance."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

 

69.

"It is true that the mother loves each of her children equally, but she is especially attentive to the helpless one who cries out most desperately for her shelter. Similarly, Lord Gauranga-Krishna loves and maintains all His part and parcel souls, but He especially takes keen interest in delivering those souls who feel complete dependance on His causeless mercy by calling out His Holy Names with every breath."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.

"One may justify one's sinful activities as God's enjoyment but such convenient interpretations cannot save one from the stern punishment at the hands of material nature in this life and the next."

 

- Swami Gaurangapada.
