karmanaiva praliyate
sukham duhkham bhayam ksemam
karmanaivabhipadyate

TRANSLATION
Lord Krsna said: It is by the force of karma that a living entity takes birth, and it is by karma alone that he meets his destruction. His happiness, distress, fear and sense of security all arise as the effects of karma.

All glories, all glories to this place where we are living Lord Murari's Vrndavana forest! He prefers residing here to residing in Vaikuntha or in the hearts of elevated saints. In Vrndavana, while always tending His cows, He gives pleasure to the gopis, whose love for Him in the mood of the rasa dance He increases by sweetly playing His flute.
