“Practice means sadhana-bhakti. This practice will bring us to the platform of perfection. Nothing else can do that. Only sadhana-bhakti will bring us to the platform of pure devotion.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Prabhupada
“We do not have to become big scholars. We do not have to become superman. We do not have to become a very famous personality. Even a devotee washing pots, distributing books or dressing the Deities is a pure devotee because he is following a pure devotee - Srila Prabhupada.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Ambition
“The way to understand the spiritual reality is to surrender to someone who has seen the truth. Those who want to expand their consciousness should take advantage of this process; of becoming exposed to the Supreme Lord, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, under the direction of a bona fide spiritual master.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Spirituality
“All services are absolute. It is not that the brahmanical service is the highest and washing pots in the kitchen, or sweeping the temple room is the lowest. Washing the pots and worshipping the deities are on an equal level.”

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Other
“There is no room for chance or accident in this material nature. Behind every occurrence and every incident there is a cause.”

“The ultimate purity and perfection in life is to develop a loving relationship with Krishna.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Learning
Krishna has come as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to open the gates of Vrindavan in order to give Vraja prema to the living entities of this world, and raganuga bhakti is the way to enter into Vrindavan. Nevertheless, generally, devotional service is meant to be executed through vaidhi bhakti – “sruti smriti puranadi pancaratra vidhim vina aikantiki harer bhaktir utpatayaiva kalpate”. However, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu perfectly harmonized these two processes of executing devotional service and paved the way to Vrindavan.

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Belief
“Srila Prabhupada is always present in our movement. He did not disappear. We are not able to see him due to our lack of spiritual vision. With our contaminated vision we are not able to see a pure personality like Srila Prabhupada.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Attitude
“If we do not think of ourselves as very low and fallen we cannot possibly surrender. If we think that we are very big, very great, very qualified, then what is the need for surrender? If we think that we are able to do everything then we will not be able to surrender. So the first consideration is to feel oneself to be very unqualified, very fallen. That is humility, dainya.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Association
"Simply by theoretical knowledge, or study, one cannot make any appreciable spiritual advancement. In order to make spirit advancement one must give up the association of materialistic persons and seek the association of devotees"

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Learning
“One has to be very careful where he develops his attachment. If one becomes attached to something other than Krishna and Krishna’s devotees, then at the time of his death he will think of that person and he will get the body like that person. So, one must be very careful how is going to design his next body.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Devotee
“Become very, very fixed up on these two things: Follow the four regulative principles very strictly; chant sixteen rounds minimum. And, read Prabhupada’s books every day.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Etiquette
“One must become the servant of the servant of the servant of Krishna! The lower we can go; the more we can develop a service attitude. In Krishna Consciousness, the sign of advancement is not to become a big devotee; but to become small devotee.”

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Other
“Material desires are temporary! Once you have fulfilled those desires, you will be back to square one.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Belief
“Whatever Krishna is providing through Mother Nature; is actually meant for the living entities survival. The first consideration is actually the living entities get what they need. And; the second consideration is that whatever there is must be offered to the Supreme Personality of Godhead! By doing that the living entities are spiritually elevated. The living entities will become situated in their constitutional position.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Attitude
“In Krishna Consciousness there is no room for stagnation! If you do not progress then you will regress. So in Krishna Consciousness you should be very, very concerned; very careful, that you are always progressing.”

hare

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Learning

Bhakti Charu Swami says on Other
“Even in a vaishnava community we see that we fail to recognize very exalted devotees because we tend to judge people. We judge even the devotees from a materialistic point of view!
