na dhanam na janam na sundarim, this isnt rhetoric O almigthy Lord
I have no desire to accumulate wealth, nor do I desire beautiful
women nor do I want any number of followers. I only want your causeless
devotional Service, birth after birth. Siksastaka(4)
All our Service is a expression of our inner self and we Service all the time are
in a feelings of servant of the servant that are to be our only interest is Devotional Service.
When we execute our Devotional Service we question ourself. When I make this
Devotional Service is my real desire please my spiritual Master than always KNOW
all are in my mind, soul and intelligence? BG,4.34, Guru-Astaka,(8)
Krsna teach in his Bhagavad Gita, (9.26) If one offers me with love and Devotion a
leaf, a flower,a fruit or water I will accept it. That is the way, bhatya, with devotion.
Krsna don`t need anything for we, because He is complete and perfect but we need
from Him, because we are insignificant parts of Him.( Sri Isopanisad, invocation)
But this reason we need to verify our heart all the time and chanting Hare Krsna
with attention and without offense because that is the way to please Guru, Krsna and
his devotees and also always have the association with Krsna. BG.12.8
Hare Krsna! Hari Bolo! Jay, Guru-Gauranga!
Dear Mother Divya,
Is very important the point than you said, we always feel than we are the insignificant servant of our Guru.
The word in sanskrit is (pariprasnena) than means by submissive inquiries, that means than we have the real desire of learning from Him. krsna- Guru, Guru- Krsna, our spiritual master are the transparent medium than we understand Krsna and rendering Devotional Service!
Every day in our temples we chant, Sri Guru Vandana(The worship of Sri Guru) The lotus feet of our spiritual master are the only way by which we attain pure Devotional Service! ALL GLORIES TO PRABHUPADA!
Thanks Divya Mataji for your association! Hare Krsna! Hari-bol!
Although everyone is servant of the Lord, one vaisnava servant because of humility
sees another servant as his master. Understanding of the master begins from understanding
the spiritual master. SB.7:5:11,purport.
1- The real VAISNAVA saw another superior than him because in his natural humilty the sadhu
dont need any kind of sense gratification than come from fame,adoration etc..., all the time
in his service he is complete!
2- Bhaktivinoda Thakura pray to his Guru, Gurudeva, give to his servant just one drop of mercy.
I AM lower than a blade of grass. Give me all help. Give me strenght. Let me be as you are, without
desires or aspirations. Hari- Bolo! jay Sri Radhe!
