(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 05 February 2013, Prague, Czech Republic, Srimad Bhagavatam 7.10.43-44)

bhyāsa-yoga-yuktena
cetasā nānya-gāminā
paramaṁ puruṣaṁ divyaṁ
yāti pārthānucintayan, (Bhagavad-gita 8.8)

Krsna says in the Bhagavad-gita that by regular practise of offering everything in service to him, we will become strong. So, it’s very nice that we have communities of devotees and when you visit and see all the children, you think, “How nice it is to grow up like this, with the deities and with Srila Prabhupada…” It’s such a good start. I always thought that this is a good place. A good place is based on the culture of the Bhagavatam, where Bhagavatam is discussed,

mac-cittā mad-gata-prāṇā
bodhayantaḥ parasparam, (Bhagavad-gita 10.9)

Devotees, when together take pleasure in discussing about Krsna. We discuss the Bhagavatam and we try to live according to the Bhagavatam, then we will have a very successful community – this is the key!
