    Satyanarayana Dasa
  • Daily Bhakti Byte

    All great people don’t harbor on the mistakes of others. They try to see what is good and encourage that. By your behavior, you can bring out the bad in others or the good in others. That’s what people do – we always try to see the faults in others. That is the conditioned mind that thinks like that. But Krishna helps others to realize that there is a beautiful soul that is a part of God.
