Never take anything for granted.......................Nectarean Mellows

Mukunda dutt he was crying to see the Lord, he wasn’t demanding, he was crying because he was not able to see the Lord, his crying was not out of demand, this is innocence. “I want to see you...why are you being so cruel to me”. Mukunda Dutt was crying, saying, “when will I see the Lord?” The Lord said, “I never want to show Myself to him.” He was crying, “when will I see, when will I see”, he wasn’t demanding. And then the Lord said, “you will see Me after 10million births!” He was in ecstasy, he was grateful. 10 million births is nothing for the gift of seeing the Lord and because of that consciousness he was so happy that all he had to do was carry on devotional service unconditionally for 10 million births and he would see the Lord. He was so happy, it’s guaranteed now for sure. The Lord showed Himself immediately, what does that mean? He is teaching us how to be devotees. Sometimes the sufferings of life wake us up. We take things for granted, unfortunately, shouldn’t be that way. The Ganges is flowing and we see it regularly if we are living in the forest near the Ganga. When Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu was living in Navadwip, He never took the Ganga for granted, everyday he would go. He would do all kinds of playing and sports there, for her pleasure, but he would bow down. Ganges is the mercy of the Lord, Goddess of devotion in liquid form. But an ordinary person may take it for granted. But when there is a forest fire and there is nowhere to go and you are burning, then you jump in the Ganga and the fire can’t touch you, then you will be thankful to the Ganga more than ever before. So the miseries of material existence for a devotee are unfortunately sometimes necessary to take things seriously.

Humility is not just a part of devotional service; it is the heart of devotional service.

To see a Vaishnava and not become happy is an offence. – Skand Puran

It is important to remind ourselves that at the end of the day, all we really have is each other.
