The soul's nature is spiritual. In the soul's heart is pure love, love for Krishna alone. Now the soul is covered with lust. Now that original love for Krishna sleeps. Chase the lust far away. Awaken the spiritual love.
If you have faith that the soul is the eternal servant of Krishna, then you will have no more misery.
Srimad Bhagavatam does not allow its followers to ask anything from God except eternal love towards Him.
If one chants the holy names of the lord, even in helpless condition or without desiring to do so, all the reactions of his sinful life departs, just as when lion roars, all the small animals flee in fear.
