Classes and Lectures

: "One should learn how to associate with the devotees of the Lord by gathering with them to chant the glories of the Lord. This process is most purifying. As devotees thus develop their loving friendship, they feel mutual happiness and satisfaction and by thus encouraging one another they are able to give up material sense gratification, which is the cause of all suffering."

Srimad Bhagavatam, 11.03.30.,
