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.

Austerity in Service
'You think in your service everything will go smoothly, but it is impossible. Krishna will test you, will examine you: how much tolerance do you have? How much love and affection do you have for the Lord and for your Guru?'


Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'O Supreme Godhead, I offer my obeisances unto You. O Damodara! O Ananta! O Visnu! O Master! O my Lord, be pleased upon me. By showering Your glance of mercy upon me, deliver this poor ignorant fool who is immersed in an ocean of worldly sorrows, and become visible to my eyes.'

Without mercy of Gauranga there is nothing.
