The whole advancement along the path of devotional service is an evolution of faith. So if you don’t have faith in the statements of scriptures, in the words of the spiritual master, in acintya sakti, then you haven’t really understood it. Better forget it. That’s what Prabhupada said, forget about it, you are never going to get there.

It is only Krsna who can actually purify the heart from all reactions of sinful life. Therefore a Vaishnava, who gives Krsna, can also give one a means by which his heart can become pure because he is giving Krsna by his association and it is Krsna who is taking away all the reactions. That’s the only way how one can become clear from the reactions of a sinful life.

One receives duties from the spiritual master, scriptures and Vaishnava’s, which are from a higher plain of existence, beyond the mind which has the tendency to accept and reject on the basis of sense gratification. As long as we accept on the basis of sense gratification, how can we know that it is our duty. It is not possible. Therefore we have to get our duty from a higher state of existence, beyond the mind.

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.
