No fatigue in Krsna consciousness

We have to work. Without working even our, this body and soul cannot go. It is a  misconception that for spiritual realization he hasn't got to work. No, he has got to work more. Persons who are not for spiritual realization, they may be engaged in work for eight hours only, but those who are engaged for spiritual realization, oh, they are engaged twenty-four hours, twenty-four hours. That is the difference. And that difference is... You'll find that on the material platform, on the bodily conception of life, if you
work for eight hours only, you'll feel fatigued. But spiritual purpose, if you work more than twenty-four hours... Unfortunately, you haven't got more than twenty-four hours at your disposal. Still, you won't feel fatigued. I tell you. This is my practical experience. This is my practical experience. And I am here, always working, something reading or writing, something reading or writing, twenty-four hours. Simply when I feel hungry, I take some food. And simply when I feel asleep, I go to bed. Otherwise, always, I don't feel fatigued. You can ask Mr. Paul whether I am not doing this. So I take, I take pleasure in doing that. I don't feel fatigued. Similarly, when one will have that spiritual sense, he won't feel... Rather, he will, he will feel disgusted to go to sleep. "Oh, sleep has come just to disturb." He wants to lessen the time of sleeping. Then... Now, as we pray, vande
rupa-sanatanau raghu-yugau sri-jiva-gopalakau. These Six Gosvamis, they were deputed by Lord Caitanya to discuss this science. They have written immense literature about it. You'll be surprised that they were sleeping only for one and half hours daily, not more than that. That also, sometimes they forego. Now, so much busy in spiritual activities, krsnotkirtana-gana-nartana-parau...

So spiritual life is so sublime and so invigorating that you won't feel fatigued. You have to be engaged. And as you are engaged actually in spiritual life, you won't feel fatigued. You'll be fearless, and your life will be always blissful.
