Question: It is said in the scriptures we cannot attain anything without the mercy of the spiritual master, how can we know that our service or our intention is reaching the heart of Gurudev?

Through practising. You can easily check and understand it yourself. You can ask yourself if you are getting pleasure, if you are getting taste through your service or not, then you can understand easily whether you are proceeding in your spiritual life or not. Practise properly and you will easily understand whether your service is going to the Guru or going another way.

Actually, sincere devotees do not think, "Oh, my service is going to my Guru," "My Guru is happy with my service." It is not necessary to think about this. You have your duty, and your only duty is to do the service. Do not think whether your service is going to the Guru or not, you should only do your service—"Gurudev prescribed me the medicine, and I will take that medicine. He is the proprietor, he is the doctor, so it is his business whether he will cure me or not. I am his servant, I am a patient, it is not my business. My duty is to take the proper medicine at the proper time."

Vrindavan Das Thakur:
A Life of Chastity
'Vrindavan Das Thakur is a disciple of Sriman Nityananda Prabhu and is the main servitor of Nityananda Prabhu. He has so much chastity for Him...'

 

Samsara-davanala
'I offer my obeisance unto the lotus feet of Sri Guru, who is always satisfied by satisfying the Lord's devotees with the four types of tasteful Bhagavat-prasad.'

We have to be niskama bhakta, no other way: we must have no material desire,
and we must not ask Krishna for anything.
