Today's Smart Quote is from A Second Chance, Chapter 16, in the section entitled, "Lord Krishna's Transcendental Pastimes."

The pure devotee's business is to satisfy Krishna, and as soon as he chants the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, he remembers how to do so.

In the material world, the living entities are inclined to go astray. The mind and senses generally become attracted to material objects of desire. But one should draw one's mind to the eternal by the practice of bhakti-yoga. Otherwise, one's mind and senses will force one to perform karma, activities for personal sense gratification.

And as soon as a person engages in sense gratification, he commits sin. Therefore to avoid karmic activities, which quickly entangle one in the process of repeated birth and death, one must take to the process of Krishna consciousness.
