Be patient, don't be disappointed

    Posted on July 16, 2014

Utsahad dhairyat. Dhairya means patience, not that "Because I have begun devotional service with great enthusiasm..." So you are already on the perfectional platform, but if you become impatient, that "Why I am not becoming perfect? Sometimes why maya is kicking me?" Yes. That is habitual. That will go on. It will stop. Niscayat. Dhairyat, niscayat, that "When Krsna says, sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja [Bg. 18.66], now I have given up everything. I have no other occupational duties -- simply to serve Krsna. So when I have taken to it, then niscaya, Krsna will surely give me protection." That is called niscaya. Don't be disappointed. Krsna is not a false speaker. He says, aham tvam sarva-papebhyo moksayisyami.
