Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krsna!
Jaya Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga!
Jaya Guru parampara!
(taken from 慏ignity of the Divine Servitor?by Srila BS Govinda Maharaja.)
搮..but the kind of living advised in the Scriptures is to live for the service of Krsna. That is our living light.
Bhaktivinoda Thakura said,
manasa,deho,geho, jo kichu mor
arpilu tuwa pade, nanda-kisor!
揑 am surrendering with everything, and from this date
You are the master of me and everything connected with me.
Therefore whatever I shall do will go to your account, not mine?
揑n good fortune or in bad, in life or in death, all my difficulties
Have disappeared by choosing Your lotus feet as my only shelter.
Slay me or protect me as You wish, for You are the master of
Your eternal servant.?
揂s You like, You do.?This type of surrender to Krsna gives us real happiness. If we can surrender to Krsna we shall be responsible for neither our karmma nor anything else. This advice you will see in Srimad Bhagavad-gita: the whole of the Gita is meant for expressing this. Indeed, the purpose of all the scriptures is to say this.
揥e must not forget Krsna, and we must worship Krsna.?To not forget Him is the restriction, and to always remember Him is the wealth. Sometimes we may think it is very difficult, and it is true, but there is no other way. Without this, what shall we do? Krsna consciousness is the only way to proceed ?there is no other way.
When a baby tries to walk, he will fall down many times, but he takes the help of the earth again to stand, and this is our only help. Whatever offence we may do, if we remain relying upon Him, He will save us from that offence. Therefore we must take shelter at the lotus feet of Krsna, and that is Krsna consciousness.
