(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Radhadesh, Belgium, 2011) Lecture – BG.15.3-4
We should never think that, ’I’m special’ since that’s when the danger comes in…as soon as we start to think that we are special, then we are a good prey for life. We should understand that one should always remember that:
“I am where I am, not by any credit of my own……………..”.
I would have never taken to Krishna Consciousness if Srila Prabhupada wouldn’t have gone to the West. First of all, we are simply a product of business, and without him we would have been totally lost! And this movement and so on, it is through that, that we are getting the mercy. So we remember it like that, and then we can take shelter of Krishna.
Any success we cannot claim it as we like, since it is simply Krishna who gave it! Because it is like that in the material world, where many times success kind of happens by accident….how many times did it happen for me:
“Wow it worked”.
It wasn’t an accident that it worked. It wasn’t like:
“Great expertise….I knew what I was doing”.
That is what we show off to the world, but most of the times somehow or other it worked by Krishna’s mercy…somehow or other by the grace of the vaisnavas!
