Before it comes a sweet verse:
The Supreme Lord said: O brähmana, what gift have you brought Me from home? I regard as great even the smallest gift offered by My devotees in pure love, but even great offerings presented by nondevotees do not please Me.
Lord Krishna to Sudama

A young hippy asked Srila Prabhupada, "If our purpose is to go back to
Godhead, why is Maya so strong?" Without the slightest hesitation Srila
Prabhupada profoundly and poetically answered, "Because your purpose is not
In other words Maya, the Lord's illusory energy, only has power over us to

Hell with the fame of my family which I am very often proud of!” Because people are generally proud of their high birth and fame of their family and high erudite learning.
