Harinam at Bajrasandi Park, Bali (Album of photos)
Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur: “If we simply engage in discussing topics of the Lord while living anywhere by the Lord’s mercy we can realize the glories of devotional service, the Lord’s mercy, and come to remember the Lord in our day-to-day life. A devotee should live wherever the Lord is pleased to keep him and should forget his own material miseries. When the propensity to serve the Lord is awakened in the heart while discussing hari-katha in the association of devotees, then we will automatically remember Hari under all circumstances. In order to test us, the Supreme Lord is always present behind what we can see. If we see the Lord’s mercy behind each and every incident, we will no longer feel distress. The material world, material existence, is the place where we are tested. If we wish to pass the test, we must hear krsna-katha from the pure devotees. Even though at present we may not always have the opportunity to hear hari-katha in the association of devotees, if we continuously hear it in the form of discussing Vaisnava literature, we will not feel the absence of Vaisnava association.” From complications of SBST in Amrita Vani: 2. How is it possible to hear hari-katha in the association of devotees if we live far from the devotees or at home?

Srila Prabhupada: “One should chant the holy name of the Lord in a humble state of mind, thinking oneself lower than the straw in the street; one should be more tolerant than a tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige and ready to offer all respect to others. In such a state of mind, one can chant the holy name of the Lord constantly. (Sri Caitanya-caritamrita, Adi-lila, 17.31)
