Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

January 27

When a devotee is impatient, he may give up sadhana. What does that mean? It means that he has lost his faith in hearing. It is hearing from Vaisnavas that has awakened his faith in the narrations of the Lord. Then, having awakened that faith, one goes on hearing even though he is suffering. That is the symptom of his patience. He goes on hearing the glories of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

What is the symptom that a devotee has awakened his faith? He continues to hear the glories of the Lord. He knows that by hearing all impurities within his heart will gradually become destroyed and loving devotional service to the transcendental Lord will become established as an irrevocable fact.

Be prepared to wait ten million births. In other words, be patient in executing your sadhana. Go on hearing the glories of the Lord, chanting the glories of the Lord, even though you may not be able to give up all sense gratification. This faith will awaken the Lord's pleasure. When the Lord is pleased He will bestow His mercy upon His devotee.

Repentance means the voluntary acceptance of suffering. It is the opposite of justification. If I justify my past behavior, I don't have to feel bad about what I did. I can then go ahead and do it again. But a devotee is one who sincerely repents. He is ready to accept Krsna’s decision for his suffering. That is a sincere repentance.

Some yogis try to detach themselves from this world, but they simply fall. But the devotee who always seeks shelter at Krsna’s lotus feet by constantly being engaged in His transcendental loving service will always be protected by the Lord.

We should never think that we can overcome maya by our own strength. We should know that our method for overcoming maya and cutting our connections with this material world is dependence on the Lord.

The devotee is like a jewel because Krsna holds the devotee in His hand and won’t let go. When a person has a very valuable jewel in his hands, he’s very careful to hold it tightly.
