Hare Krishna! Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to the Lord
and His great devotees!

The Srimad Bhagavatam mentions: yena kena prakarena krsne manah nivesayet.
Somehow or other we have to fix our minds on the Supreme Lord
Krishna/Vishnu. The rules and regulations can come later as it will then be
easier to follow, by the mercy of the Guru and the Vaishnavas. Of course the
rules are also important but the first thing is to somehow fix our minds on
the Lord.

I find this conference very nice. I thank all the Vaishnavas in this
cyber-assembly for their association and for their sharing nectarean
Vaishnava writings.
