(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 June 2013, Vrindavan, India, Srimad Bhagavatam 6.16.34)
To really serve in a mood of trying to please Krsna is not so easy. Obviously, a lot of people get restless and may want to leave so it does require special determination, I think. In the light of that I can say, “Give them enough rope so they can hang themselves.”
It means that in this regard, some people are not meant for this program. It does not mean there is no program. There is somewhere else but not this one. This program requires commitment. It requires that at least one understands that we are greatly blessed, that we can chant here in Vrindavan and that our whole existence in the material world has become so simple.
Can you imagine the complexities that everybody has? Look around, people have to make so many arrangements just for their mind. Just because their mind is driving them, whipping them and somehow or other (as a devotee), you do not have to. We came to Vrindavan; it is a rare opportunity that life can be so simple and that we can do such direct activities.
