Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

August 31

Krsna knows best how to bring everyone back to Godhead. He knows just how to help surrendered souls and what situation to put them in so that they can make advancement. Why? Because He knows our desires.

How do we develop love for Krsna if we don’t know anything about Him? When you hear how wonderful He is and the more you hear that, then just seeing Him invokes such love within the heart, because you have heard first. That is the power of hearing.

Love can only exist when Krsna is at the center and when we serve others. Therefore, we see that by serving others we are serving Krsna and when we associate with others in a loving way, its helping us to remember Krsna. That is what actually attracts one devotee with another because Krsna is at the center.

So this svarupa shakti, the Lords internal potency, is coming from the Lord and manifests in the Holy Name and in the hearts of Vaishnava’s. Therefore, if we can serve Vaishnava’s we can actually become proper recipients for this svarupa shakti to enter into our hearts. Then we get nourishment, strength, knowledge and experience some bliss. This is the most blissful engagement and there is nothing more satisfying to the self then to serve the Supreme Lord and to serve the Vaishnava’s.

Why does Krsna come? He comes for our benefit, for the conditioned souls who have forgotten Him. There is nothing for Him to gain by appearing in this world. He is not coming to collect some personal servants, but comes to display these pastimes, entrap the living entity back to His eternal realm of enjoyment or pleasure.

So we must always keep Krsna consciousness present and face the light and not turn our backs on Krsna. As long as we are always moving forward to Krsna and He sees that our desire is to go forward, then He pulls. That is Krsna. He is all attractive. That means He’s also pulling.

Discipline means that we do something that we may not necessarily want to do and when we accept that force and see it’s connection to Krsna, then we become Krsna conscious and in doing so we become inspired, knowing where it is coming from.

So the substance should be there first and then the form will follow. And the substance is simply wanting to see others advancing in Krsna consciousness, assisting the spiritual master in taking care of devotees and in helping devotees increase their faith in the process of Krsna consciousness and in the Holy Names of the Lord.
