Give priority to spiritual life.......................Nectarean Mellows

Similarly, Lord Jesus…he said if you love anyone more than you love God then you are not really a devotee of God. …the treasures of this world, he said, will be eaten by moths, rusted, corroded by rust and stolen by thieves. ‘Make your treasure in the Kingdom of God because there it will be permanent’. There is no rust, moths or thieves. Lord Chaitanya tested Prataparudra Maharaja to show the world how a man of such stature gave such priority to his spiritual life. He remained as king but how was he a king? He was so humble, he was so gentle but at the same time with all the power, with all the intelligence, with everything he had, he ruled the kingdom in the spirit of love and devotion to God and compassion to every living being. Practically the whole treasury of the Kingdom was at the disposal for people to elevate and enlighten people’s consciousness. He would set up gigantic places with go downs or storage places with food to cook wonderful, wonderful prasad to the devotees and the general population. He arranged all facilities for spiritual teachers to elevate people’s consciousness. At the same time he protected his citizens, he excised the taxes necessary, he maintained the justice department and he maintained his armies to protect them from the onslaughts of massive armies which were always waiting to attack and he did it all, not with greed, not with ego, not with lust, not with envy, but with love, compassion, humility and devotion. And this is the teaching of Bhagavad-Gita. Bhagavad-Gita does not teach that we should give up our work but to perform our work motivated by the highest ideals.

Humility is not just a part of devotional service; it is the heart of devotional service.

To see a Vaishnava and not become happy is an offence. – Skand Puran

It is important to remind ourselves that at the end of the day, all we really have is each other.
