With the wealth of the holy name, we maintain and nourish our soul and become ātmārāma.
You are a soul, then you should have a goal of meeting the Supreme Soul. Otherwise the whole thing is lost.
Krsna consciousness is not on the platform of man and woman, but on the platform of spirit soul.
HH Lokanath Swami Maharaj
Keep the mind fit. Keep the mind healthy. If the consciousness is contaminated, the consciousness of the soul is not healthy, then the mind is not healthy, then the body is not healthy. So ultimately it depends upon the health of the soul, the consciousness of the soul.
When a devotee dances, it is not the body that dances: Atma dances, the soul is dancing. When the soul dances, then the body has no choice but to dance. When a materialistic person dances – in a marriage party or wherever they dance – their body dances. Their soul is not happy, it doesn’t take part in that dance.
A person can only be content when his soul is satisfied. In Krishna consciousness you can be satisfied. The soul is satisfied, then the mind is satisfied, the body can also be satisfied and kept happy with just a few needs.
Something we hear, temporary, the music, this, that, touch, smell give some temporary pleasure, but that is flickering. It disappears like the bubbles. How long do the bubbles last? They don’t last very long.
