Question:

If every devotee is satisfied in their level of service, why does Laksmi desire to join in the rasa-lila? 

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikāśa Swami:

Well, maybe that’s an exception. But that’s the general rule.
But, then She couldn’t neither, because She is Lakṣmī.
It is not that She is dissatisfied to serve Lord Nārāyaṇa.

But, seeing the ecstasy of the gopīs, how they are serving Kṛṣṇa, then She also desired that.
But, it is not that She is dissatisfied. She is very happy to serve Lord Nārāyaṇa.

Do We Need to Spend Time on Introspection?

May 1, 2016 |

Question: When it comes to spiritual life, as a sadhaka, I am busy on constant survival mode, trying to chant, read, hear etc. Between this, do I need to spend time to self-introspect? For example, I was listing to a lecture of Jswami. In his lecture he was talking about how lust or desire is the cause of material bondage. Am I supposed to self-introspect myself and change this desire aspect or is this hovering over the mental plane?
