Art of Saying ‘Sorry’

There are two golden words “Thank you” and “Sorry” which we should use genuinely and without miserliness in our dealings with others. But some times we take it for granted and don’t use them either due to our familiarity with others or due to our ego. Both these words are expressions of our gratitude to others for their help, their kindness in tolerating us and apology for the inconvenience we have caused to them.

We say “sorry” when we put others into inconvenience (no matter if it is knowingly or unknowingly). We say “Thank you” to others when we receive help from them which we do not deserve. We are happy to receive these two words from others, but are not so ... Read More »

Ways to Become Gentle and Sober

We are all in Kali yuga which itself impels us to be in mode of passion and ignorance and therefore goodness does not prevail at all. But a devotee of Krishna should be in mode of pure goodness and this can be achieved only by becoming sober and gentle. By being passionate and ignorant there is no question of soberity at all.

Answers from a Maha-Bhagavata – How to Become Humble?

Recently I was going through the diary which contained my conversations with our beloved Gurudev, HDG Mahavishnu Gosvami Maharaj. I seek the permission of the devotees to allow me to share an excerpt from one of the conversations. I will try and list down the points which I had taken down on my note book. We had noted this conversation down in point form. In this mail we have tried to put together all the points in 4 paragraphs for ease of reading, as such the sentences may not be flowing as it should be. Kindly forgive us. Question: Maharaj, we always read about the importance of humility. I have read in Prabhupada’s letter that real devotional service starts only when one is humble. What must we do to become humble Maharaj? Maharaj: Just remember your ashes. When you die the ashes are there. Nothing else. What is there to ... Read More »
