Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

PAMHO.

Please give exact reference.

Generally speaking, Kaliyuga is already fallen age, most... no, all of us are not qualified for Krsna bhakti. As you know the ABCD of devotion begins with Association. Things become easy to follow in association. 

Haribol,

Your servant,

Pranams Mataji.  I am in touch with some devotees.

Yes , srila prabhupad says when we are alone mind goes here & there & doing bhakti is quite difficult
Aloneness is our eternal constitutional positioning in fact.i.e. our most natural state.how can this change?, only thorough direct intentions expressed through selfless indevers known as sacrifice(s) we must invite others into our space less we are alone most naturely! Thus for our own protection & that, for those that matter to us we attract the Hearts & minds of the worthy GodHeads & their devotees for their goodness sake & for our own. This is not an artafishel imposition on the mind or heart this is purification & joy to the naturely-externally liborated Soul! Yes good associations are worth shearing the best of our beings with! I agree. But I also think the experience of growth that the experience if a trile and error aproch to life is *the normal way of this world & the common life. Many great things have, been acomplished by those aesthetics who have renounced through Yoga all good & evel for the sake of fulfilling their individual intentions!? Works of devotion or absolute renunciation both are good for liboration! ?
Works in devotion and the renunciation of the marrits of all works are both condusive for liberation , but between the two Working in the mood of devotional service is preferred by God, as in the eternal skeem of things What can repression acomplish? Krishna said in the (BG) ?Devotional associations are better that ambisus renunciation s
Good luck all' Hare Hare bolah

That is very thoughtful process and thank you Prabhu for it.  Can be utilized for self realization as well as preaching.
