Janmashtami Card-1

"Experience cold or heat, pleasure or pain. These experiences are fleeting; they come and go. Bear them patiently."

-From Bhaagvad Gita


"And when immorality prevails, O Krishna, the women of the family become corrupted; when women are corrupted, social problems arise."

-Bhaagvad Gita, Lord Krishna


"It is better to perform one’s own duties imperfectly than to master the duties of another. By fulfilling the obligations he is born with, a person never comes to grief."

-From Bhaagvad Gita, Lord Krishna


Janmashtami Card-2

"Even though scolded by the wicked or insulted, ridiculed, calumniated, beaten, bound, robbed of his living or spat upon or otherwise abominably treated by the ignorant-being thus variously shaken and placed in dire extremities, the man who desires his well-being should deliver himself by his own effort through patience and non-resistence."

-From Bhaagvad Gita, Lord Krishna


"As the tiger devours other animals, so does the tiger of intense love and zeal for the Lord eat up lust, anger and other passions. The devotion of the gopis is the devotion of love, constant, unmixed and unflinching."

-By Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa


"Krishna, who gives delight to all and who is blissful in his own being, divided himself into as many Krishnas as there were gopis and danced and played with them. Each girl felt the divine presence and divine love of Sri Krishna. Each felt herself the most blessed. Each one’s love for Krishna was so absorbing that she felt herself one with Krishna, nay knew herself to be Krishna. And wherever their eyes fell they saw only Krishna."

-By Swami Prabhavananda


Janmashtami Card-3

"The divine play of the gopis is the acme of the religion of love, in which individuality vanishes and there is communion. It is in this lila that Sri Krishna shows what he teaches, ‘Give up everything for me.’ Take shelter under Brindavan lila to understand Bhakti."

-By Swami Vivekananda


"Krishna is Truth. He was born in the quite heart-caves of the Rishis. Those Rishis gradually transmitted their knowledge to their disciples. ThusKrishna was removed from the prison to Yasoda’s house – the disciple’s. There is no pain in this unique delivery. The Guru gives out the child without the agony of labor pains."

-By Swami Chimayananda


" You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of the work. You should never engage in action for the sake of reward, nor should you long for inaction."

-From Bhagavad Gita


Janmashtami Card-4

"The wise do not grieve for the dead or the living. As the soul passes in this body through childhood, youth and old age. Even so it is taking on another body."

-From Bhagavad Gita


"To action alone you have a right, never to its fruit; let not the fruits of action be your motive nor let there be in you attachment to inaction. Do your work, abandoning attachment, with an even mind in success and failure."

-From Bhagavad Gita


"Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is."

-From Bhagavad Gita

-From Bhagavad Gita 13.18, Srila Prabhupada
