How Being connected to Krishna Protects us all the time?

How Being connected to Krishna Protects us all the time?

A Girl devotee (Name hidden) asked like this:

“I first got attracted to Krishna two months ago, I have never had any sadhu sanga, no kind of initiation, but I really do want both these things, but within these months, I have develpoed spontaneuos love for Krishna, I remember Him almost all day long and cannot live without taking His name, I have gotten closer to Him, I have strong desire to eat tasty food items, very rarely I get them and can easily resist, I love Krishna, but i have to perform other duties also. All day, I am happy just thinking of Him and many times, I tend to cry, sometimes I even shake, once i felt extreme separation from Him, felt a void inside, my anxiety and OCD have decreased a lot but i cannot figure out what stage i am in, kindly help me prabhuji.”

REPLY:

All the sadhanas we do, they are meant to develop spontaneous lovev for Krishna only.

Chanting, Initiation, etc will help us to fasten the development of this Prema.

That is why we are recommended to get the mercy of a guru who will purify us and make us eligible to develop the Prema stage by stage.

Just being connected to Krishna all the time is the purpose of chanting and association that will gradually take us to the stage of Prema.

I always give importance for being connected to Krishna all the time.

This preaching service help me to remain connected with Krishna and His devotees that is the prime importance on devotional practices.

Though some devotees do not have the facility of direct association, our VANI sathsangha help them to remain connected with the devotees and Krishna.

(Vaidhi Bhakti & Raganuga Bhakti- Two Types of Devotional Practices! READ HERE!)

Our natural position is to remain connected to Krishna.  As Srila prabhupada said, only when an individual part is connected with the machine, it has value.  If a bolt or screw remains alone, it has no value.

Similarly, when we are away from Krishna, we are zero.  Only when we are connected to Krishna, we gain a position as the part and parcel of Lord.

I personally have experienced it.  I think that it is appropriate to mention my extreme steps to tacle with the material problems during my initial stage of devotion – that you will get thrilled to read.  You an imagine how severe my situation was at that time that was saed by Krishna.

When I was not serious in Krishna Consciousness, Considering the extreme poverty of my family, I started my company by borrowing investments, having the aim of making the financial position of our big family comfortable.  In brief, I started company to become rich.

(NINE STAGES OF BHAKTI YOGA (ADVANCEMENT IN DEVOTION) EXPLAINED! READ HERE!)

So, in the beginning, I worked very hard to make my family rich.  So, day and night work.  As I had invested borrowed money of more than 10 lakhs, the interest burden made my running very difficult.  The capital and interest went up above 20 lakhs of rupees.

My whole earnings went to pay interest alone.  So, I could not save anything.  So, more and more pressures to repay loans.

This is the result of working for me, ie, to become rich.

In due course of time, I started to take part in chanting and other services for Krishna seriously without expectations.

However, my courage was going up and, I started to believe that I can make everything right because I am not cheating anyone.  And, I am the servant of Lord and hence Lord will not let His devotees fall in life.

A stage came to test me.

(ACQUIRING KNOWLEDGE, BHAKTI RASA & KRISHNA PREMA – PROCESS! READ HERE!)

At a particular stage, I had no other way than to commit suicide because my image may come down if I do not repay a part of loan within a week.

Once I was under the pressure of repaying atleast Rs.4 lakhs within a week. In the year 1998-2000, it was a big amount.  I had no source at that time.

Unless I pay that money within a week, I might have to face the case.

So, I collected sufficient sleeping pills.

Before dying, I decided to make an attempt to get some money.

So, alternatively, I decided to sell one of my kidneys for a sizable amount.

So, I collected the courage to sell a kidney and went to the reception of the Appollo Hospitals, Chennai.

(How Chanting protects us from material problems? READ HERE!)

I told the receptionist:   “I like to sell my kidney. Whom should I contact?”

The receptionist saw me with doubt.  She said:  “There is no such department in the hospital that deals with buying and selling the kidneys.  Selling kidneys for money is illegal sir…..”

I felt helpless hearing her reply.

She saw me with pity.

Without knowing what to do, I came back to my home town. And, I realized that selling kidney wrong and hence I dropped that idea after that futile attempt.

Even in that pitiful and threatening situation, as taught in ISKCON about Nishkam Bhakti, I did not ask krishna for help because, I did not perform Krishna Bhakti to get relief from material problems.  But, I will remember Krishna during problems without asking anything because I firmly believev that nKrishna knows what we need and He knows whether to givev or not (or) when and how to give something to us.

So, I was just working sincerely leaving the results to the lord.

As explained by me already in counsellings, within the next 3 days, an unexpected elderly person gave a very big business unexpectedly.  This solved my financial problems within a day.

(READ THAT EXPERIENCE HERE:  IS KRISHNA TRUE? DOES KRISHNA EXIST? HOW TO AVOID DOUBTS?)

Thus, my image was saved by the lord as He sent a person with a very big business offer to me.  In my service, I never got such a big opportunity.

Because, it was done by Krishna.

Since I was connected with Krishna thru chanting every day even in that pitiful situation, I got the remedy from Krishna Himself.

So, when we are connected to Krishna, we will always be under His guidance and supervision.  He will never let us down.

This is the guarantee given by the Lord in Bhagavad Gita (9-31).  “My devotee never Perishes!”.

This is my guarantee also on behalf of Krishna.

This guarantee is based on my own experience, not hearsay.

(How to pray to Krishna if we like to come out of problems? READ HERE!)

So, always be connected with Krishna.  Always depend on Krishna.

Always take it positive though Krishna does not approve anything as He may have some other plans for us.

Krishna’s way of helping us is unique.  Believe that.

If He does not give something to us, that means, that will not do good for us and hence Krishna did not give that.

If you try your best for IAS, but, you got qualified for IPS only, you should take t as the wish of Krishna.

You might have been destined to become a popular police officer like Kiran bedi.

We should not expect that Krishna should help us only in the particular way we expected.

How?

Always think of Him and also chant His Name as much as possible.

Accept whatever Krishna gives.

Be peaceful in life.
