"Shri Sukdeveji consoles king Pariksit on being afraid of death:- At the last stage of one’s life, one should be bold enough not to be afraid of death. But one must cut off all attachment to the material body and everything pertaining to it and all desires thereof.[15]

" Sri Sukdevjee says:-Formerly, prior to the manifestation of the cosmos, Lord Brahma, by meditating on the virat-rupa, regained his  lost consciousness by appeasing the Lord. Thus he was able to rebuild the creation as it was before.[1]

When there are ample earthly flats to lie on, what is the necessity of cots and beds? When one can use his own arms, what is the necessity of a pillow? When one can use the plams of his hands, what is the necessity of varieties of utensils? When there is ample covering, or the skins of trees, what is the necessity of clothing?[4]

Above all, does the Almighty Lord not protect the fully surrendered souls? Why then do the learned sages go to flatter those who are intoxicated by hard-earned wealthy ? [5]

The process of meditation should begin from the lotus feet of the Lord and progress to His smiling face. The mediation should be concentrated upon the lotus feet, then the claves then the thighs, and in this way higher and higher. The more the mind becomes fixed upon the different parts of the limbs, one after another, the more the intelligence becomes purified.[13]

The great personality Brahma, with great attention and concentration of the mind, studied the Vedas three times, and after scrutinizingly examining them, he ascertained that attraction for the Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krisna is the highest perfection of religion.[34]

The Personality of Godhead Lord Sri Krsna is in every living being along with the individual soul. And this fact is perceived and hypothesized in our acts of seeing and taking help form the intelligence.[35]

Those who drink through aural reception, fully filled with the nectarean message of Lord Krisna, the beloved of the devotees, purify the  polluted aim of life known as material enjoyment and thus go back to Godhead, to the lotus feet of Him the Personality of Godhead].[37]

" Shri Shaunakjee said to Sutaji:-One who has not listened to the messages about the prowess and marvelous acts of the personality of Godhead and has not sung or chanted loudly the worthy songs about the Lord is to be considered to possess earholes like the holes of snakes and a tongue like the tongue of a frog.[20]

The upper portion of the body, though crowned with a silk turban, is only a heavy burden in not bowed down before the Personality of Godhead who can award mukti [freedom]. And the hands , though decorated with glittering bangles, are like those of a dead man if not engaged in the services of the Personality of Godhead Hari.[21]

The eyes which do not look at the symbolic representations of the Personality of Godhead Visnu [His] forms, name quality, etc.] are like those printed on the plums of the peacock, and the legs which do not move to the holy places [ where the Lord is remembered] are considered to be like tree trunks.[22]

The persons who has not at any time received the dust of the feet of the Lord’s pure devotee upon his head is certainly a dead body. And the person who has never experienced the aroma of the tulasi leaves from the lotus feet of the Lord is also a dead body, although breathing.[23]

"Sutajee:-Certainly that heart is steel-framed which , in spite of one’s chanting the holy name of the Lord with concentration, does not change when ecstasy takes place. Tears fill the eyes and the hairs stand on end.[24]

O Suta Gosvami, your words are pleasing to our mind. Please therefore explain this to us as it was spoken by the great devotee Sukadeva Gosvami, who is very expert in transcendental knowledge, and who spoke to Maharaja Pariksit upon being asked.[25]

Braham, it is I, the Personality of Godhead, who was existence before the creation, when there was nothing but Myself. Nor was there the material nature, the cause of this creation. That which you see now is also I, the Personality of Godhead, and after annihilation what remains will also be I, the Personality of Godhead.[32]
