WORDS TO LIVE BY:

"Devotion is above all. Saranagati, surrender, is the highest property of everyone. Surrender to Him, and He may graciously make His Name known to us, and we will be able to know Him."

- Srila Sridhar Maharaj

"The Lord and His Holy Name are nondifferent. Our connection with Them is always a living matter, never a dead matter, and the result of that connection must come to us. By serving Krishna's Name we will get direct service to Krishna because Krishna and His Name are nondifferent.
"


- Srila Govinda Maharaj
