The process in which we die to live ………………………Nectarean Mellows

At the same time, when we take initiation or dékñä, we are taking a new birth. We are given a new name, and every name ends with däsa, servant, or devi däsi, servant. Kåñëa däsa, Gauräìga däsa, Çivaräma Däsa, Rüpa Gosvämé Däsa, these are all not just name, it is a very, very sacred act of surrender if we understand it in its proper context. When we are given this name of the servant of God, that is the process in which we die to live. I am now leaving behind my false ego, all of my temporary designations, and I am identifying myself and living according to the principle of my eternal identity as the servant of the Lord. The spirit soul is infinitesimal, it is only a tiny little spark of the supreme sun of Kåñëa or God. Çaraëägati or surrender, the spirit of dying to live means to wholesale offer, offer everything that we have for the pleasure of the Lord.
