(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Melbourne, Australia, October 2011)
The mercy of Krishna comes through the spiritual master, and our service is offered through the spiritual master to Krishna. By serving our spiritual master, we are offering service to Krishna!
We can also try and leave the spiritual master out, and do some other service for Krishna. It’s possible, but to serve our spiritual master is the activity that attracts the blessings of Krishna!
