Without bhakthi you can never have peace. Radhekrishna!

                         ‘Thrisathyasya bhakthireva gariyasi’

Sage Narada in his Naradabhakthi suthram says that in past, present and future bhakthi is the only truth and there is nothing greater than bhakthi. Only if we do bhakthi we can realise its quality. Bhakthi is the easiest thing in the world. There are four types of bhakthas says Sri Krishna in Bhagavath Geetha. 
     Chathurvidha bhajanthe mam janaH sukrithinorjuna!

      Artho jijnjaasu arthaarthi njaani cha Bharatharshabha!

                                                       Slo:16, Chap: 7

Those who approach Bhagavan to fulfill their needs, those who want relief from their problems and difficulties, those who want to know more about Bhagavan and those who are fully realised and are enjoying Him are the four types of bhakthas. Bhagavan likes all the  four types of bhakthas. We must have full faith in Bhagavan all the time. To whatever extent the situation might go the real bhaktha will win definitely. Bhagavan takes care of the needs of his bhaktha who believes Him. If we think whether these things are practical in this kali yuga, we should say they are.  Many think that in this present age no such leelas are taking place. Also when some terrible incidents happen they think that Bhagavan is not present in this age.  They decide their life according to the sufferings of the body. Life is nothing but the mixture of incidents due to our deeds of past janmas. A two year old  cannot understand life. If it has wrong notions about life it is not God’s mistake.  Dharma and the qualities of men in the four yugas change. But Bhagavan’s karunyam never changes. Bhagavan is blemishless—‘kurai ondrum illaatha Govindan’.  In fact with our bhakthi we can fully realise Bhagavan’s karunyam in this kali yuga itself. Bhagavan is present everywhere. We have to become Prahlada to experience Him. Like  King Parikshit, if we want we can mingle with Bhagavan even in a week’s time. We must have that unchanging faith in a Sadguru as Parikshit had. We can bring Bhagavan in front of us in five months as Dhruva did. We should have that much yearning for Bhagavan as he had. Radhekrishna!

      Faith is the base for our life. Nobody with faith failed in their lives. So hey bhakthas! surrender yourselves completely unto Bhagavan. U can experience Him definitely. Even when we have nobody on our side, be assured that Bhagavan is always with us. He is inside us watching everything we do as a witness. He is the permenant power, wonderful ocean of mercy!. We must believe Him. He does not know to discard those who believe Him. Sri Krishna is really great! He resides as Gopala in Brindavan. One should have the desire to spend at least a minute in His presence. Live your life with Him. It is indeed a great experience!

       On the banks of river Godavari, is the city called Vidyanagaram. There was a bachelor  boy named Kalyana Brahmachari. He was an orphan  with no relatives at all for him. He was a poor brahmin with great devotion. He did not have the pride of lineage, education, or riches.  The most important quality one should have is humility. The mind free of jealousy will enjoy bhakthi. Bhagavan also likes one who is devoid of ego. 
         ‘Isvarasyaapi abhimaanadveshithvaath dhainya priyathvaachcha’.
                              (Naradabhakthisuthram -27)

      Those with humility  are more liked by Bhagavan than those with selfishness.  This youth lived his life for Bhagavan. He did all his Karmas for the sake of Bhagavan and offered the results too to Him. He was watching all the incidents happening in this world as the divine leelas, accepting everything that came in his life as Bhagavan’s prasadam, chanting the divine name always and living life happily. He used to pray to Bhagavan that all his indrias (senses) should yearn for Bhagavan only, and that the bad qualities of kamam (desire), krodham (anger), madham (pride),  mathsaryam (jealousy) should be completely eradicated from him. He prayed for pure bhakthi alone. Each day whatever he did his lips were chanting the divine nama. each day he would pray that he too experience the different experiences of different bhakthas. The cows of the Brindavan had the fortune ot pulled, tied, hugged and kissed by Krishna. He wanted to become like them. It was enough for him to become a product of Bhagavan. He wanted to become the thamala truee on which bhagavan sat. He wanted to become all those things which were enjoyed by Bhagavan. Radhekrishna!

         He had a long time desire of going to Sri Brindavan. He had heard great mahans say that a birth of blade of grass in Brindavan is a great sowbhagya. If we go on a pilgrimage our prarabdha gets destroyed. But this young man did not get the chance so far. But he firmly believed that some day Bhagavan will take him too to Brindavan. Bhagavan knows when to take whom to somewhere. It took eleven years for Akroora to reach Brindavan. Akroora waited with full faith till that time. Kalyana Brahmachari also with prayers and full faith was waiting for that day. Prayer never fails. Most of the times during prayer we slip into imaginations. That is why sometimes our prayer does not give results. Pray with full faith and without any sort of imaginations. Radhekrihsna!
