(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 2011, New Ekachakra, Slovakia, Lecture)

One can never take Krsna for granted. One should never think, “I’ve done so much service… so much! You know in my days, we used to go out on sankirtan and we used to distribute so many books, so many books that one man could not lift them! In the past, we did so much service, and that’s why in the present we don’t have to do anything!”

If we do think like this then immediately, maya is here!

Kṛṣṇa-bahirmukha hañā bhoga vāñchā kare, nikaṭa-stha māyā tāre jāpaṭiyā dhare, Jagadananda Pandita in the Prema Vivarta says, “Maya is waiting nearby and as soon as we show a little interest, by just looking with interest in the material energy, maya is not waiting for us to fall down… she will slap us DOWN!”

So, we must take shelter of Krsna, again and again, and we always have to conquer Krsna, again and again, through devotional service.
