Please receive my blessings. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
The verse you asked me for explanations actually comes from Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.2.11 and it contains a description of some qualities of Krishna. He is a person with localized and energetic qualities. The difference between the personal and the localized aspect, such as Paramatma, is that it is a product and it’s temporary.
That the personal aspect is the supreme is deduced from the fact that while a person can have those qualities mentioned in the verse, the contrary can’t be said. Therefore we say that Sri Krishna is the Supreme Personalities of Godhead.
About service, obviously writing is what I do, so I’d have plenty of that. The rest, also due to distance, is difficult. Selling books would be great but I am not sure how to arrange it. Think about it. Maybe you can come up with a plan.
But if you can’t do any personal service to me, rest assured that chanting rounds, studying, etc., and giving service to the local temple are services to me.
I’ll surely give you initiation at, as you say, some future moment. When we are reasonably sure that this is what you want and you are steady in your resolution, that will come. Nobody expects you to be perfect. Obstacles will be there, they will come and you may slip now and then, but if you are resolute, success is assured.
Being present in our videoconferences is much better than watching in a solitary fashion. You are with other devotees and you can interact lively. To enter into the conference hall every time you can.
