Hare Krishna ! All glories to Shrila Prabhupada !
I had a question and would be grateful if someone would answer it.
Lord Krishna is our eternal well wisher therefore He gives us only what we need (i.e devotional service) and not what we want(i.e material attachments that take us away from Krishna). This gives so much satisfaction because there may be so many attachments which can take us away from Krishna but since Lord Krishna does not give what we want and gives only what we need so I feel safe on this path.
However there is a contradictory statement in Prema Vivarta which is as follows-
"O Sanatkumara, my dear spiritual master, kindly enumerate the different offenses to the holy name. Chanting the holy name is the prime duty and religious practice of the jiva and his ultimate shelter. Caution must be taken that the aspiring devotee is not thrust down into maya due to offenses. Offenses can misguide the devotee into believing that chanting is a mundane activity. In this way, he ends up with meagre material benefits from chanting, depriving him of real benediction."
Here it is clearly stated that Naam Prabhu gives us everything that we want and not necessarily what we need therefore it is adviced here to be very careful by asking only for love of God. I really request if someone could could guide me with these contradictory statements.
