The word 'Madhava' is significant. Ma, Mother Lakshmi, the mother of all opulences, is always with the Supreme Personality of Godhead and if a devotee is in touch with the Supreme Personality of Godhead (Krishna), all the opulences of the Lord are ready to help him.

Through the association of devotees, one can engage in the service of the Lord by hearing and chanting. Thus one can revive his dormant Krishna consciousness and sticking to the cultivation of Krishna consciousness, return home, back to Godhead, even in this life.
