If you cannot do anything, do this

    Posted on January 17, 2018

Anyone in this material world who offers his obeisances before the Deity, don't think it is useless. It is taken into account. Therefore Krsna advises, if you cannot do anything, you do four things: man-mana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru [Bg. 18.65]. "At least come before Me," just like we do. We come in the temple and offer our obeisances. It is so easy to go back to home, back to Godhead. It is not very difficult task at all. If you cannot do anything — if you cannot read books, if you cannot understand philosophy, if your behavior is not on the standard — still, if you simply offer your obeisances before the Deity, you make progress. You make progress. Undoubtedly. In the Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu you will find it that this worshiping method — come to the temple, offer obeisances, just like these boys, they are playing mrdangas, they are playing cymbals, dancing — every item is taken into account. Every item. Not that it is going futile. No. That is Krsna consciousness, that is bhakti-marga, svalpam apy asya dharmasya trayate mahato bhayat [Bg. 2.40]. Simply by playing on the cymbal, on the khol, taking little caranamrta... Everything in detail there is in the Nectar of Devotion, you have read.
