Cultivate the service attitude, that is the basis to attract Krsna ……………….Nectarean Mellows

There are so many subject matters in this world. There is poetry, music, news, prajalpa, and so many things to discuss, so many things to hear everywhere. But one who focuses their attention on hearing the glories of the lord and really has that eagerness, that taste is an expression of love. Krishna reciprocates and by seeing that, the lord removes the anarthas from within and reveals Himself. In Srimad Bhagavatam, we learn that it is not just the matter of coming to classes to hear - śuśrūṣoḥ śraddadhānasya vāsudeva-kathā-ruciḥ /syān mahat-sevayā viprāḥ puṇya-tīrtha-niṣevaṇāt - (O twice-born sages, by serving those devotees who are completely freed from all vice, great service is done. By such service, one gains affinity for hearing the messages of Vāsudeva). One develops this actual eagerness to hear about Krishna on the spiritual platform through his service attitude, by serving not only Krishna but by serving great souls, who have taken shelter of Krishna. In essence what this is saying, the service attitude that we cultivate is the basis of how we attract Krishna. Bhakti Siddhant Saraswati Thakur, he, emphasized on the service attitude, it means that we are not the seers, we are the objects of Krishna’s seeing. We are not the enjoyers but we are meant to be seen as objects for Krishna’s enjoyment.
