    (this blog is recorded on the full page: quick time player needed) Regular spiritual practice, which includes living a life in goodness (sattva), studying the Vedic scriptures, serving Deity forms of Krishna, chanting the maha-mantra and other prayers, associating with persons of similar interest and inviting saints to our home, help us be in a receptive mood to learn from every circumstance and person we encounter.

And he did this just to sanctify the residence." -Srimad-Bhagavatam, 1.4.8 Should devotees think they're sanctifying people's residences by standing at their doors?
