To be a servant means to put our own ideas aside, 'Oh, I want to do this. I like this; I don’t like that. I like this service; I don’t like that service. I like this temple; I don’t like that … more
Krsna is quite demanding.
He is merciful but demanding at same time. Sometimes Krsna does gives some extraordinary mercy just like that – but in the end He is demanding, because Krsna is not looking just what you do – sometimes it is said that Krsna is looking at what you are holding back.
Not that Krsna has no appreciation for what we are doing-He does.
It’s said He is Acutya. Never fails to appreciate a tiniest little bit of service done. But especially when we become little bit more serious about spiritual life then Krsna starts to work on what we are holding back.
