You have to chant Hare Krishna, render devotional service, read scriptures, then you will understand.

Same is true for Nanda Maharaja also. We should know this. So whether one is a vana-prastha, sanyasi or grihastha, main attraction is Krishna.

  • Dedicated to Guru

    Brahmachari – He is doing so much austerity of getting up for mangal arati, cooking for the Guru, thinking that everything he possesses actually belongs to his Guru and completely dedicating his life in the service of Guru.

Prabhupada says “If somebody can remain a brahmachari, 75% of his chances are there of going back to Godhead if he strictly follows his Guru's instruction.
