    Hare Krsna Mataji,


    Surrender - the best way - simply ask Krsna Himself - I want to surrender to You - I dont know how to - pls help me. If your desire is sincere, He will show you the way.

    If you read the purport of 18.66 of Bhagavad Gita As It Is, it is very nicely explained by Srila Prabhupada what are the 6 steps of surrender.

    What you are telling us, tell Him - He is so receptive to a sincere heart, He wil surely show you the way.

    Best of luck, please keep this sincerity.


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD

  • When person wants to build a big house alone, he needs first to associate with such people who doing it every day. This is answer on your last question.


    Lets jump to first ones now.

    The faithless ones  seek the help from others when need it, but those who are truly faithful depends only on the Lords mercy. 

    We can see nowadays that the modern religious leaders are accepted  as faithful and fully surrendered to Lord, but actually the most of them are faithless philosophers who depend on money from their blind followers. With that money they live comfort life, paying the most expensive medicine help when needed, eating luxury food and sleeping in hotels on soft beds and all that on behalf of Lords name. Such persons never surrender to Lord, despite their wish to do so, because surrender is only possible in a HELPLESS condition and with faith in Lord.

    Generally speaking, those who cant give up security and comfort cant surrender to God.

    Kali Yuga is God given Age for surrendering to Lord, only because helpless situations waiting on every corner. That's why those who live in the poverty, homeless and abandoned from anyone, has opportunity for surrender to Lord.


    Spreading the holy name of Lord is like spreading the seeds, if you spread the seeds on the bad soil it wont grow, but it will on good growing one. The poverty and hopeless population is the best soil for planting the holy names, because this is the way how to grow  pure devotees, sadhus and paramahamsas.

    As far as people continue to think that without Lakshmi (money), there is no possible to serve or please the Lord, that far the Lord remains unreachable.


    • Dean Prabhu,

      Thank you very much for your excellent and thorough responses. You share deeper levels of understanding and wisdom. You consistently serve all members of this community with high quality guidance. I am fortunate to associate with you.

      I pray for Krishna to bless your beautiful soul.

      Hare Krishna
  • It is your decision at every moment whether to surrender to Krishna or not. Full surrender means undeviating devotion to Krishna, which is the result of many lifetimes of devotional service. Do not be so concerned with being a fully surrendered soul. Just perform your duty and worship Krishna, and your life will become happy.

    This is a simple thing that you are purposefully making complicated. Just continue chanting. If you want to chant more, then do so - what is the problem?
