(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, Leicester, England, 4th June 2012) Lecture: SB 1.2.7
Gradually we begin to see the Krishna has representatives everywhere and in that we are approaching Krishna through His representatives. And we can see that His mercy is coming through to us and we are becoming sensitive. Instead of being dull and ignoring the devotees, we begin to see that Krishna has empowered agents and devotees everywhere. Gradually we begin to understand that we don’t just need Krishna since we need them also, we need them all, we need the blessings of them all and we realise that. Sometimes on the vyasa puja, you can hear an offering when someone says:
‘I have no qualification. I am just made up of many mercy. I am just made up of many blessings.’
And that’s right our spiritual life is made up of blessings. Blessings are building stones in our spiritual life. It is through blessings that we are gaining qualities. On our own where do we go? But blessed by a great vaisnava, makes such as difference and for each blessing one must be grateful!
