Eight Things that Help a Devotee Advance (10/19/13)
Dear ______ Dāsī,
Firstly, there were no files of Portuguese translation attached to your email.
As for the book ‘The Golden Staircase’ is concerned, please check with ____ Mahārāja about that.
Several things help a devotee to advance in Kṛṣṇa consciousness:
1] Constant chanting of the holy name
2] good Vaiṣṇava association
3] service to higher Vaiṣṇavas
4] correctly grasping Gauḍīya siddhānta
5] enthusiasm for service
6] patience for the results to come
7] studying Vaiṣṇava literature and
8] regularly honoring Kṛṣṇa-prasādam.
You cannot rush the process, only hope against hope that you will be successful.
