Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Two energies are working in this material world: the spiritual energy and the material energy. The material energy means these eight kinds of material elements. Bhūmir āpo 'nalo vāyuḥ: (BG 7.4) earth, water, fire, air, sky, mind, intelligence, and ego. These are all material. And similarly, finer, finer, finer, finer, and grosser, grosser, grosser. Just like water is finer than the earth, then fire is finer than the water, then air is finer than the fire, then sky, or ether, is finer than the air. Similarly, intelligence is finer than the ether, or mind is finer than the ether. The mind... You know, I have given several times example: the speed of mind. Many thousands of miles within a second you can go. So the finer it becomes, it is powerful. Similarly, ultimately, when you come to the spiritual part, finer, from which everything is emanating, oh, that is very powerful. That spiritual energy."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
sa vai puṁsāṁ paro dharma
yato bhaktir adhokṣaje
ahaituky apratihatā
yayātmā suprasīdati
(SB 1.2.6)

"This is Bhāgavata religion. That is first-class religion. What is that? Yataḥ, by executing the religious principles, if you develop your love for the Supreme, who is beyond expression of your words and beyond the activities of your mind... Adhokṣaja. This very word is used, adhokṣaja: where your material senses cannot approach. And what kind of that love? Ahaitukī, without any cause. 'O Lord, I love You, God, because You supply me so many nice things. You are order-supplier'. No. Not that sort of love. Without any exchange. That is taught by Caitanya Mahāprabhu, that 'Whatever You do... Āśliṣya vā pada-ratāṁ pinaṣṭu mām (CC Antya 20.47). 'Either You trample me under Your feet or You embrace me... What You like. You make me brokenhearted by not seeing You—that doesn't matter. Still You are my worshipable Lord.' That is love."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Any, anything happening, you will read in the Kṛṣṇa book—so many dangers. The boys, along with Kṛṣṇa, they used to go every day with their calves and cows and play in the forest on the bank of the Yamunā, and Kaṁsa will send some demon to destroy them. So you have seen, you will see also pictures. So they'll enjoy simply because they are so much confident. That is spiritual life. Avaśya rakṣibe kṛṣṇa viśvāsa pālana (Śaraṇāgati). This strong faith, that 'Any dangerous condition, Kṛṣṇa will save me', this is surrender."

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"You cannot relieve this body from repeated birth and death, and while manifested, disease and old age. So people are very much busy for culturing knowledge of this body, although they are seeing every moment that this body is decaying. The death of the body was registered when it was born. That's a fact. So you cannot stop the natural course of this body. You must meet the process of the body, birth, death, old age, and disease."

05:59 minutes from a lecture on ISO in Los Angeles
Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Either the karmīs or the jñānīs or the yogis, they are always... they are, every one of them, trying to elevate. And above them is the devotees. So devotee's place is the highest because by devotion only you can understand what is God. Bhaktyā mām abhijānāti (BG 18.55), Kṛṣṇa says. He does not say that 'By karma one can understand Me'. He does not say that 'By jñāna one can understand Me'. He does not say that 'By yoga one can understand Me'. He clearly says, bhaktyā mām abhijānāti: 'Simply by devotional service one can understand'. Yāvān yaś cāsmi tattvataḥ (BG 18.55). Knowing Him as He is, that is bhakti. So except devotional service, there is no possibility of understanding the Absolute Truth."
