In Dvāpara-yuga you had to leave the house and go to the forest. In Kali-yuga from the home, you can serve the Lord or go to the temple and do devotional service. It is a must that we engage in the service of the Lord. That way we can feel great happiness. We can take some Deity as our special Deity and reveal our mind to Kṛṣṇa and get His blessings. In this way, we can be personally engaged in Lord Kṛṣṇa’s service. And we should help the spiritual master so that the Kṛṣṇa consciousness can spread.
