Feeling Spiritual Joy

“You know what happens to a flame when the wind is on – it becomes very flickering. Some people try to make every surrounding very peaceful to achieve that quiet mind. But that is temporary because when from outside some disturbance comes the mind will be disturbed. But when that calmness is brought from within by inner spiritual strength by chanting of Hare Krishna, then the mind becomes steady even if outside there are troubles. Therefore the devotee feels spiritual joy and dances and laughs.”
