RECOVERY AND REALIZATIONS
LATEST POST FROM FACEBOOK
Dear devotees, friends and well-wishers: I have recovered enough from my surgeries here in South Africa to start traveling again. I leave for Mayapur, India on February 1st. I have learned many valuable lessons through my ordeal, but the most important one is that there is no shelter in this world save and except the lotus feet of the Lord. For that shelter I am prepared to give up whatever is not favorable for pure devotional service. I hope to keep that realization enshrined in my heart forever. I leave with no regrets, only an abundance of gratitude for the lessons learned and the support of many wonderful devotees. I plan to publish a diary chapter later this week about my experience here and all the realizations gained.
“What is painful for saintly persons who strictly adhere to the truth? How could there not be independence for pure devotees who know the Supreme Lord as the substance? What deeds are forbidden for persons of the lowest character? And what cannot be given up for the sake of Lord Krishna by those who have fully surrendered at his lotus feet?”
“To get to that advanced stage in Krishna Consciousness where someone is already remembering Him [Krishna] out of pure love, one has to go through various stages. The first half of the process of Krishna Consciousness is cleansing the heart so that that pure love can manifest.”
