Just before Tamal Krishna Goswami left, he had given a series of
lectures on the Nectar of Instruction.  These were given in Mayapur
India with devotees visiting from Taiwan and China.  A devotee is also
translating into (I believe) Mandarin.  There are a total of 7 lectures.

TRANSLATION TEXT 3

There are six principles favorable to the execution of pure devotional service: (1) being enthusiastic, (2) endeavoring with confidence, (3) being patient, (4) acting according to regulative principles (such as sravanam kirtanam vishnoh smaranam [SB 7.5.23] — hearing, chanting and remembering Krishna), (5) abandoning the association of nondevotees, and (6) following in the footsteps of the previous acaryas. These six principles undoubtedly assure the complete success of pure devotional service.
