Book Distribution and Love by Giriraj Swami


I heard a wonderful talk by Srila Prabhupada in which he spoke of love and service, that love must be accompanied by, or expressed through, service. He said, “Real love, engaged in the service of the Lord—then our life is successful. If you sacrifice your life for serving Krishna, you will always remember Krishna. You are taking so much trouble, going place to place to give one book to somebody. Why? Because you love Krishna, and you are thinking, ‘If this gentleman takes one book, never mind small or big, he’ll read at least one page about Krishna.” So you are thinking of Krishna. That is meditation. Real meditation is how to think of Krishna. Krishna—Krishna’s form, Krishna’s pastimes, Krishna’s activities, Krishna’s desire, how to fulfill it, that is wanted. That is Krishna consciousness.”

—Srila Prabhupada, talk on Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 20.101, July 6, 1976, Washington, DC
