How can we enter into devotional service ?


Devotional service is dependent on the mercy of Krishna and  His devotees.  Unless we surrender to the lotus feet of  a pure devotee, it is not possible to come to the platform of pure devotional service.  By his own efforts a bee cannot taste the honey within a bottle.  The bottle must be opened by a superior.  If the bee simply licks the outside of the bottle, thinking “Now I am tasting honey,” then he is in illusion.  Similarly, no one can enter into devotional service unless the door is opened by  a devotee.
