Today's Smart Quote is from the Science of Self Realization, Chapter Seven, in the section entitled, "Saintly Compassion"

The Vaishnava knows that as soon as one surrenders, one's path is clear. Naivodvije para duratyaya-vaitaranyas tvad-virya-gayana-mahamrita-magna-cittah: [SB 7.9.43] ''Somehow or other, let them bow down before Krishna." This is a simple method. All you have to do is bow down before Krishna with faith and say, "My Lord Krishna, I was forgetful of You for so long, for so many lives. Now I have come to consciousness; please accept me." That's all. If one simply learns this technique and sincerely surrenders himself to the Lord, his path is immediately open. These are the philosophical thoughts of a Vaishnava. A Vaishnava is always thinking about how the fallen conditioned souls can be delivered. He is always involved in making plans in that way, just like the Gosvamis.
