Narada Bhakti Sutra Teachings

No worry or anxiety should be entertained at worldly losses, as it is the nature of a true devotee to surrender constantly his limited self and all its secular and sacred activities to the Lord of his heart. (VI, 2:61)

Until a consummate (perfect and complete in every respect) love is gained (or even after attaining the consummate love), worldly activities are not to be abandoned. Certainly, we must diligently pursue love and learn to renounce our anxiety to enjoy the fruit of our actions. (VI, 2:62)

Virtues, like ahimsa, truthfulness, cleanliness, compassion and faith in the Lord should be consistently cultivated. (VIII, 2:78)

Always free from all mental anxiety, the Lord alone is to be invoked and sought after with all factors of our personality. (VIII, 2:79)
