Thought Of The Day

We go here and there for fulfilling our desire, but if we are fully surrendered to Krsna, all our desires will be fulfilled sitting at home. We haven't got to go here and there. Therefore it is said, surataror iva te prasadah. And how it is? Sevanurupa. This is... This is the secret. If you are engaged cent percent in service, sevanu..., anurupam. It is proportion to your service. You cannot order Krsna, "Give me this." That is not possible. He is not your servant. Krsna cannot become anyone's servant, "Krsna, give me this, give me that." Krsna's not your servant. He's not order-supplier. His order you should supply. Then you can take. You don't make Krsna your order supplier. That is mistake. Therefore anyabhilasita-sunyam [Brs. 1.1.11], pure devotion means first of all you learn not to order Krsna, "Krsna, give me this, give me that, give me that." Don't bother Krsna. That is the beginning of spiritual life. Anyabhilasita-sunyam [Cc. Madhya 19.167]. You prepare to carry out every order of Krsna. Then it is spiritual life. Don't make Krsna your order-supplier. You become order-supplier of Krsna.
