“Krsna Loves His Devotees” (8 min video)

“Krsna Loves His Devotees” (8 min video) by HG Mahatma Prabhu.
In his commentary to the Gita 9.30, wherein Krsna says his devotee is a sadhu even if he commits an abomination, Visvanatha Chakravarti Thakura says that Krsna becomes a little angry thinking that someone is faulting a devotee. If a devotee feels he is bad and lowly, Krsna will repeatedly overlook that offense. If a devotee’s action is bad but his intention is good, Krsna will ignore/forgive the action and accept the intention.

When Mother Lorrie visited her son, Jayapataka Swami, in Mayapur…

When Mother Lorrie visited her son, Jayapataka Swami in Mayapur
Haridhvani Devi Dasi: In 1995 I went to India and that year was the 25th anniversary of HH Jayapataka Swami taking sannyasa, so his mother actually came to Mayapur at festival time. I and a few other ladies got the chance to take care of her while she was there. We would try to see to her comforts- is she hot, is she thirsty, is she hungry, would she like to go shopping? It was nice because we figured that Maharaja would be pleased if she was happy and cared for so we did our best.

We may not be able to appreciate and value how Krishna, as Supersoul sitting in our heart, is inspiring us to progress towards Him at every stage in our Krishna consciousness journey. Supersoul plays a very important role in the journey of a devotee. Let us find out how we can connect with Supersoul and hear his voice and advice directly.
