Quotes

Without hearing the Lord’s glories, how can bhava remain firm in the heart? Bhava is perfected through the mind and heart, so until these are detached from activities related to the physical body, it will not be possible to experience Shri Krishna’s divine form. Shri Mahaprabhuji has explained what happens when the mind lusts after samsara and the mundane: “Know that Hari will never enter the heart of a person whose body is overcome with worldly desires.” — Shri Gopeshwarji, Shiksha Patra 40.7
