The spiritual master and Krishna are two parallel lines. The train, on two tracks, moves forward. The spiritual Master and Krishna are like these two tracks. They must be served simultaneously. Krishna helps one to find bona fide Spiritual Master and bona fide Spiritual Master helps one to understand Krishna. If one does not get bona fide Spiritual Master, then how he can ever understand Krishna ? You cannot serve Krishna without Spiritual Master, or serve just Spiritual Master without serving Krishna. They must be served simultaneously.
Krishna takes a special appreciation for His devotees who are engaged in risking for His preaching work and He will give you special care and guidance at all times because you are sincerely trying to serve Him in this way.
Krishna is within your heart. If you kindly continue to hear about Him, as you are doing, then Krishna will be very much pleased. “Oh, this person is now interested in me” because nobody is interested in Krishna, so Krishna is also silent to them. However, as soon as you become interested, Krishna becomes very active. “Oh, he is trying to do something. I shall help him.”
Wherever there are devotees, wherever there is devotional service, Krishna is there and wherever the main consideration is: Where is Krishna? Where is Krishna Consciousness? Where is service to Krishna? Where is remembrance to Krishna ? That is Vrindavana.
When we give up the tendency to enjoy for the sake of Krishna’s pleasure then we actually win his favor.
When we become connected to the supreme spirit then we automatically becomes situated in our spiritual identity.
