Sree Sree Guru Gaurangau Jayatah!

The very fact that we are in bondage and are suffering threefold afflictions proves that we are averse to God (Sri Krisna). The root-cause of our afflictions is forgetfulness of our eternal relation with Sree Krishna. Those jivas, who have done eternal good deeds, who are fortunate come in contact with real Sadhus (Suddha Bhaktas) and come to know about their real self that they are eternal servants of Sree Krishna and when they have forgotten their eternal relation with Sree Krishna, they are entangled in the snare of Maya.

Now if they take absolute shelter at the Lotus Feet of Sree Krishna, they will be rescued. Jivas are atomic spiritual sparks-they have got thinking, feeling and willing. Misuse of their relative independence is the cause of their averseness to Sree Krishna.

Sree Krishna does not want to destroy the relative independence of jivas, because by that the very purpose and existence of jivas will be destroyed. So Sree Krishna and His devotees always try to advice jivas and make them understand so that they will submit to Him willingly.

As long as the sweetness of Sri Krishna is not tasted this tug of war between worldly attraction and Krishna-bhakti will continue. Without sadhana `Sadhya Vastu' goal of life cannot be achieved. You are to perform sadhana with sincerity and steadfastness.

It is a long journey. We will not get anything all on a sudden. For enslaved jivas, suddha bhakti- suddha Harinam is difficult. But if there is sincere desire to perform Bhakti and Chant Harinam correctly, Sree Krishna and Sree Krishna Bhakta will be at your back to help you. By their grace you will succeed in getting Suddha bhakti and in uttering Harinam rightly.
