Without the mercy of Guru and Vaishnavas Krishna Consciousness is simply an imagination.
For receiving mercy of Krishna I surrender unto his energy (Radha), and for receiving the mercy of his energy I surrender unto Krishna.
In spiritual life, one must conduct one's whole life under the guidance of the guru. Only one who executes his spiritual life under the direction of the spiritual master can achieve the mercy of Krishna.
Krishna can be known only by the causeless mercy of the pure devotee and by no other way.
Mercy is always flowing, but everything depends upon our Receptivity.
Service to the Vaishnavas is the most potent formula for getting the mercy of Spiritual Mater and Krishna.
