There is no doubt about the Lord’s love for us. Do we love him?
By performance of nama sankirtana, all anarthas are destroyed and all auspiciousness arrives invoking love of God.
HH Lokanath Swami Maharaj
For a soul there is no old or young, it’s never too late, grab the opportunity. If you try to enjoy here, you will end up suffering. There are two sagars, Prema Sagar and Maha-anartha sagar, and those who are intelligent will always go for Gauranga.
What we are lacking is love. No one is really liking us in a genuine way. They hate us, they get us, they hit us, they cheat us. This all happens in this world. They keep us in ignorance and, as a result of that, there is suffering. Our dealings in this world, if they are not spiritualized, if they are not Krishna-ized as of yet, they are full of kama, full of lust, full of desires.
Love is divine. Love is something out of this world. Love is on the level of the soul. One soul loves the other soul and all the souls love the Supreme Soul and the Supreme Soul loves all the souls. That is love, that is loving dealing, loving reciprocation, which we miss a lot here in this material world.
So once we get the bija, bhakti lata bija, we want to make sure that the bija doesn’t remain just a bija, a seed all the time. That seed has to sprout. From the seed comes the seedling and then it has to grow in the land, become a bush before it turns into a tree and finally you could pick up some fruits of love of Godhead.
If you have become guru, mata, pita, then you have to liberate your dependants. You have to remove them from the jaws of death in this lifetime as well as future deaths. If you do not do this, then whatever you do, even animals do. Food, clothing and shelter is provided by parents in every species.
Discover yourself and also discover the Lord. These two discoveries are going hand in hand. It is not just discover myself. What good is that discovery – or it’s an incomplete discovery – if we do not discover the Lord.
Krishna enters our heart, our consciousness and if we keep watering that seed, then it will sprout. It will grow into seedlings and a plant and a tree and eventually there will be fruits of love of Godhead, Krishna-prema, that we could relish.
Lord takes little extra time little delay but there is never disappointment there is no darkness, You go on “utsahat nais all that Lord wants you to go that extra mile to make that extra endeavor. Lord reciprocates with affection to his devotees
