Gospels of Shrila Goswamipad :–

1. Pleasing the Lord Hari is cannot be done by bodily strength, but by sincere following. By teaching the followers about pure devotion and making them qualified, one who gives enjoyment to the Lord is actually Guru tattva.
2. The creeper of devotion definetely grows with hearing and chanting, but the weed may also grow. Therefore, the practicing devotee must be careful. The gardener must put a fence.
3. Bhakti is like a Royal road. Here no obstacles and inconveniences can do anything.
4. Attachement for Godly things brings detachment for the illusive objects.
5. Just like the motherly feelings of a mother is not expressed in absence of the child, similarly without devotion or devotee the affection of God is not expressed.
6. Everything related to God is situated at the highest level. Because we are not in the same plane, we do not see it.
7. Like Sri Krishna is the highest truth of ‘Sambhog rasa’ (mellow of enjoyment), Srima Mahaprabhu is the ultimatum of ‘Vipralamba rasa’ (melow of separation).
8. Those who are worshiping Krishna is intelligent. But those who are worshipping Krishna as a follower of Mahaprabhu is the most intelligent.
9. In the realm of ‘seva’ (service), one cane secure more the more he cecome humble.
10. ‘Sankirta’ is a great thing. All the rasas (mellows) are linked in it. The devotees of all rasas unite in samkirtan. Bobody knew its taste. Sriman Mahaprabhu is the inverntor of Samkirtan.
