We should understand that we have all actually come from the same family—Krishna's family—but through our karma-phal (results of our activities) we are now separated and live in so many places. Our Param Guru Maharaj Srila Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj has a book called Loving Search for the Lost Servant: Krishna is searching for us. Krishna has also lost His servant—He has lost His sons and daughters like us.

We are suffering so much at present. We use our life to do nonsense thinking that we will go to heaven, but actually we may also go to hell... We carry on our life in this way, but this is not right because we all have come from the same family—from the family of the Lord (Krishna's samsar, Krishna's paribar). We are members of Krishna's family. As I have just said, we are now separate, going here and there because of our karma-phal (the result of our nonsense activities), but we must remember that we must come to the place where we have come from—we must get to our destination. To achieve that, proper practice is necessary.

In this life, unless we get proper guidance, we do not know which way we must go. Not knowing anything, we use this life on many illegal activities, but if we want to go the proper way, then a guardian is necessary. This guardian is the Guru. Krishna comes to us Himself or He sends His associate as a Guru. We must take shelter of such Guru, then he can guide us and tell us which way we should go and which way we should not go. If you listen to him, you can go the proper way. When a real Guru comes to our life, he can advise, he can order and manage our life.

The main thing is that we must go the proper way and that to go that proper way it is necessary to practise properly.

Embrace and Nurture
'Why has Krishna, the Lord Himself, sent you here with this human body? For eating, sleeping, and enjoying? Is this all that this life is for? Can you not see anything else, any other good things?'

 

Ki jani ki bale
'Everything is Yours. I am only a servant. Certainly You will deliver me. I have embraced Your feet and no longer belong to myself.'
কি জানি কি বলে

Hari Nam is conscious, He is nondifferent from Krishna, and Nam always considers whether one is an offender.
