Question: If we have some difficulty on our spiritual path, perhaps some inner difficulties, where shall we find shelter, what will be helpful for us?

So many problems will come on this way. The main thing is you must have patience—patience is the main thing.

তোমার সেবায় দুঃখ হয় যত,
সেও ত' পরম সুখ ।

tomara sevaya, duhkha haya yata,
seo ta' parama sukha

"All the distress I encounter in Your service is also my greatest happiness."

(Saranagati 16.4)

Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur says that when you do service, so much sadness, so much unhappiness will come, so many obstacles will come, but that is your happiness. You can think, "OK, I am in the line of Krishna consciousness, I am a member of Krishna's family, I am a devotee of Gora (Gauranga Mahaprabhu), I am a devotee of Gurudev—Gurudev can give me so much unhappiness, he can give me whatever he desires, he can test me whichever way he wants to, Krishna can do whatever He wants, it is not a problem for me—I will take everything on my head."

Many things can come, many contradictions can come, many problems will come, but the main thing is you must have the strongest faith in your Guru, then your Guru will show you who is real, what is real, he will give you everything. If you have the strongest faith in your Guru, then you will be able to understand clearly what is necessary for your spiritual life—he will supply it to you and he will distribute it to you.

The Right Perspective
'If you do not have money, it is not a problem—you can just serve with some water and Tulasi and keep Lord Krishna in your heart. Unfortunately, however, you get some happiness and, enjoying with that, you forget Krishna.'


Gaya Gora madhur svare
'Your life is ending, but you have not served Hrsikes. Bhakti Vinod advises: once relish His Name's nectar.'
গায় গোরা মধুর স্বরে

How much chastity do you have? How much sincerity do you have? You can easily analyse it yourself—but be always careful.
