(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 12 December 2013, Midrand, South Africa, Evening Lecture)

on your kneesIt is the nature of Krsna that he wants to give the glory to his devotee because Krsna serves his devotee as the devotee is serving him. So, it is a mutual thing. It’s not like here is God and there is the living being on his knees, “Oh yes, on your knees, on thy knees! Thou shall go and thou shall pray and I will…bless!” Not like that.

Rather, Krsna is seeing, “Oh, why are you praying? Why are you praying to me? Why? You don’t want anything?”

“No, no”

“You don’t want any wealth?”

“No, no”

“Then why are you praying to me? Do you have some health problem? Do you want to fix it? Is that why you’re praying to me?”

“No, no.”

“You want to get married? Is that why you’re praying to me?”

“No.”

“You want to get rich? Is that why you’re praying to me? Why are praying to me?”

“No. Oh, I’m actually praying to you because you are so amazing.”

“Oh, you mean you are praying to me and you have no desire for anything in return?”

“Well, I want something…”

 “Oh, what do you want?”

“I want to serve you eternally.”

Oh, that purchases Krsna! Then Krsna will also serve that devotee. He will become the servant of that devotee and that is the highest, when the devotee becomes the servant of Krsna and Krsna becomes the servant of the devotee. The devotee is trying to give the glory to Krsna and Krsna trying to give the glory to the devotee!
