Attaining Devotional Service

Quotes by Srila Prabhupada on Attaining Devotional Service

In the preliminary phase of spiritual life there are diffrent kinds of austerities, penances and similar processes for attaning self-realization. However, even if an executor of these processes is without any material desire, he still cannot achieve devotional service and aspiring by oneself alone to achieve devotional service is also not very hopeful, because Krishna does not agree to award devotional service to merely anyone. Krishna can easily offer a person material happiness or even liberation, but he does not agree very easily to award a person engagement in His devotional service. Devotional service can in fact be attained only through the mercy of a pure devotee.

Confidence

Quotes by Srila Prabhupada on Confidence

One should not be impatient in discharging devotional service, but should take instruction from the spiritual master and execute them with patience depending on the mercy of Guru and Krishna. The successful execution of Krishna conscious activities requires both patience and confidence? The devotee thinks "Krishna will surely protect me and give me help for the successful execution of devotional service." This is called confidence. — The Nectar of instruction, Text 03.
