1. Don’t try to cheat Krsna

    Ye yatha mam prapadyante tams tathaiva bhajamy aham [Bg. 4.11]. If you want to play tricks with Krsna, Krsna is the greater trick. You will never be able. That is our mistake, that we think that “I am so intelligent, I can do something without the knowledge of Krsna.” That is our foolishness. Krsna says, sarvasya caham hrdi sannivistah [Bg. 15.15]: “I am sitting in everyone’s heart.” How you can cheat Him? It is not possible. Don’t try to cheat Krsna. Don’t try to cheat guru. Don’t try to cheat Krsna. Then your progress is sure.
