Srila Bhaktisiddhanta: advice for householders
Posted on December 28, 2015
Unless a householder worships child Krsna, his attachment for his children will remain strong. As long as the Lord's pastimes in madhurya rasa do not become the subject of one's meditation, one will continue to think of his wife as the reservoir of all pleasure. Unless one becomes a pure devotee of the Lord, accepting Lord Krsna as one's only friend, just like Sridama, one will not be able to give up the hankering for temporary and superficial material relationships. Until one's propensity for rendering devotional service to Lord Krsna is awakened, one will continue to foolishly demand service from others. One who is actually intelligent should understand that there can be no satisfaction for the self on any planet within the material world. Therefore, like a traveler who has become very tired while traveling, one should go back home, back to Godhead. Eternal peace is the condition of the faithful servant of Sri Krsna.
