660) Whether I know how to please others! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————- How one can be pleased? That is the process. Pranipatena sevaya. You can please one simply by surrendering to himself and by rendering service, “Sir, I am your most obedient servant. Please accept me and give me instruction.” Sisyas te ‘ham sadhi mam prapannam [Bg. 2.7]. Even Arjuna was a very intimate friend of Krsna, still, while learning Srimad-Bhagavad-gita from Him, he surrendered himself to Krsna and said that “I am no more your friend.” Of course, friend is also, a friend of Krsna is also surrendered. That is… But specifically he said, sisyas te ‘ham. Sisya means “You can rule over me now.” Sas-dhatu. Sas-dhatu. From sas-dhatu, sastra, sisya, sastra, these things have come. So sisyas te ‘ham. Sisya means “Now I am under Your full control. You can use me in whatever way You like.” So in this way, anviksikyam pracoditah. ————————–
