It’s so easy to get carried away and rush around from events to project meetings to messaging this person and arranging that, all in an attempt to save the world and give everyone as much Krishna consciousness as you can. That’s great, but oftentimes we forget to take the shelter we so badly need.
Because it’s not just that person you’re trying to cultivate that needs saving – you need saving too.
And today is the best day to pause, be brutally honest and put our hands up. Realize that we’re not a special case and we need as much mercy as we can get our hands on. Don’t be fooled, though; mercy is by no means a rare commodity in Lord Caitanya’s sankirtan movement. Lord Nityananda has lots of it and without it, we’d become very dull.
Can you imagine a Lord Nityananda that only gave his mercy to those that were qualified? Where would this movement be if that were the case? I certainly wouldn’t be here for one.
The best thing we can do today is approach Him on his appearance anniversary and be convinced that He will give us His mercy and be convinced that we need it the most!
Of this, there is no doubt, because Lord Nityananda is tasting ecstatic love to such a degree that He will give you His mercy regardless of how unqualified you think you are. And that is our saving grace.
