“Happiness comes from within, our mind makes us happy. We are looking for happiness from without. Therefore we are frustrated. Although we are dragged here and there by our willing servants, our senses, we are not satisfied. So the devotees completely take shelter of Krishna’s names, dedicate their every bit of intelligence in serving him with their bodies, mind and words, they get the full nectar. And as much as one takes shelter, so much he will get the taste. This is guaranteed.”
