Colourful Vrindavan Darshan - 01.02.2012

Padyavali Text 14: Pure devotional service in Krishna Consciousness cannot be had even by pious activity in hundreds and thousands of lives. It can be attained only by paying one price - that is, intense greed to obtain it. If it is available somewhere, one must purchase it without delay.*
Ramananda Raya

Padyavali 20: O Supreme Personality of Godhead, when someone desires to chant Your holy name, sins tremble in fear, the glory of material illusion faints unconscious, Yamaraja's scribe Citragupta becomes happy and gazes at the chanter's toenails with awe and reverence, and Lord Brahma prepares madhu-parka to worship him. O Lord, what more can we say than this?
author unknown

Padyavali 40: O Lord, I do not pray for heavenly happiness, I do not even aspire for liberation. Simply let, day after day, the nectar of Krishna's transcendental pastimes flood my ears.

Padyavali 49: His loosened hair crowned with a peacock-feather and flowing over His shoulders, His handsome form bending in three places, and His feet crossing as He dances, merciful and charming Krishna plays His flute. Such is the Lord whom I worship.

Padyavali 51: Lord Krishna who is like a sun rising in the darkness, like a boat to the drowning, like a sweet raincloud to those dying of thirst, like a fabulous wealth to the poverty-stricken, and like an infallible physician to those afflicted with the most painful disease, has come to grant auspiciousness to us.
