WHO IS THE DEAR DEVOTEE OF KRISHNA? WHY?
Thousands of innocent devotees wander here and there all over the town and distribute/ sell the books related to Krishna.
Whenever there are any big festivals in any temples, they go and arrange a road side book stall and also distribute the books to the thousands of visiting devotees.
They have rejected going behind beautiful girls and comforts. They go all over carrying the messages about Krishna.
Why do they do so?
Because, they believe Krishna. They want to serve Lord. They want to serve by spreading His messages to those who are interested.
They can work in a company and earn thousands of dollars and spend lavishly and enjoy life.
But, they have rejected such a materialistic life style and are serving Krishna by meeting the people and distributing books.
They believe that the organization they belong to is very sincere and hence they serve sincerely and blindly.
So, the spiritual organizations have serious responsibility to fulfil the GENUINE LOVE AND DEDICATION of these innocent devotees on Krishna and the Sathsangha. So, the spiritual organization can not deal with such dedicated devotees casually. It should encourage such devotees and ensure that their whole life is protected because they have given up all their earnings and come to this sathsangha and serve Lord from there.
We can’t see even 1% doubt in the face of this sincere devotee who is taking the books to distribute all over the town.. He is travelling with the books on Krishna trusting that his organization will take care of him till the end if he serves lord sincerely.
So, those running temples and engaging full time devotees in the service of Krishna, have serious responsibility to protect these innocent devotees.
If the devotees become frustrated, that means, we have not done our part well. So, we have to ensure that these devotees are taken care well by the organizations.
Krishna should take back such innocent devotees who distribute the books on Krishna, to His kingdom without fail, even after this birth itself.
Because, in this cruel kaliyuga, and in this western society, every devotee is travelling in a bicycle or bike or car distributing the books on Krishna. He believes our concepts. So, we have double responsibilities to ensure that these devotees are encouraged and protected by us throughout their life.
If we do not do that, there is no meaning in running sky high temples.
Any spiritual organisation should think thousand times before engaging innocent devotees in the services, because, these devotees believe us innocently and come for the service.
Please please please, never make them disappointed unless they do any serious disciplinary offenses. If these sincere devotees are happy in your sathsangha, Krishna will automatically be happy.
I wish the devotees distributing the messages of Krishna with Krishna related books and similar sincere devotees go back to the Godhead and serve Him eternally.
Let Krishna compulsorily take back this and similar devotees who are doing innocent services to Him in hot sun as well as cold winter.
My honours and pranams to all such innocent and dedicated devotees who are selflessly serving the Lord by spreading Lord’s messages.
I feel very very insignificant whenever I see such innocent devotees who are distributing the books for no salary except the mercy of Krishna. Of course I too am distributing the messages of Lord, but, these devotees run in hot and cold conditions taking the books on Krishna. How great these devotees are!
Sincere preachers and book distributors are the dearest devotees of Krishna. No doubt in this.
Innocence is liked by Krishna much. He will not let such devotees down.
That is why Krishna says in the last chapter of Bhagavad Gita that those devotees who spreads His messages to the interested devotees are His dear devotees. Their elevation is guaranteed.
