The heatwave in the U.K. has broken. Rain is falling in sheets , trickling to the roots of the parched green plants. In the same way the Grace of Mahaprabhu nourishes the deepest parts of our souls.
In his commentary on verse 8 chap. 10 of B.G. Praphupad says "Lord Chaitanya likens the transcedental devotional service to the sowing of the seed in the heart of the living entity". He goes on to say that the chanting of The Names fructifies the seed ,"just as the seed of a tree fructifies with regular watering. He goes on to say that the Spritual plant grows until it pierces the sky of the material universe, "It finally grows until it reachs the Spiritual Planet Goloka Vrindavana......Ultimately the plant takes shelter there under the Lotus feet of Krisna where it gradually sprouts fruits and flowers. And the chanting and hearing which is the watering process, continues".
All Glories to our Swami Gurudev who has planted the seeds of devotion in our hearts, and who gives us the inner urging to water that seed.
