The Essence

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. - Mathew 22: 36-37

The supreme occupation [dharma] for all humanity is that by which men can attain to loving devotional service unto the transcendent Lord. Such devotional service must be unmotivated and uninterrupted to completely satisfy the self. – SB 1.2.6

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. - Mathew 22: 38-40

mad-bhakta-pūjābhyadhikā - The Lord is extremely satisfied with those who offer worship to His pure devotees. – SB 11.19-20-24

Krishna Consciousness is PhD in compassion

Krishna Consciousness is PhD in compassion. If one wants to learn the art of compassion, one has to become Krishna Consciousness. It also means, one cannot claim oneself to be a devotee if he or she is not compassionate towards all living entities. Compassion is beyond bodily designations. It is not bound by time, place and circumstance. It should be shown 24/7 to all living entities regardless of one’s actions, thoughts or words. It should be shown to animals, plants and all beings alike. Therefore one who is compassionate has to be Krishna Conscious and one who is Krishna Conscious has to be compassionate. If not, the true meaning of compassion and Krishna Conscious is not properly understood. Therefore, to be truly Krishna Conscious means a PhD in compassion.

A true vaishnava is an unconditional para duka duki!
