(Kadamba Kanana Swami, April 2012, Radhadesh, Belgium, Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya Lila 200-250)
In spiritual life, we are all facing challenges. We are aiming at a very high goal but we do not want to approach it with fanaticism where we are just going to push ourselves into the most austere situation and try to maintain it. No, sometimes we have to take small steps but we should never take a step back! One should not go backward in spiritual life. Whenever one has accepted a level of higher commitment, one must maintain it!
