1. Svarupa-siddhi

    So in this way, if we actually establish… Establish means re-establish. It is already established. We have got different types of relationship. That is called svarupa-siddhi. Svarupa-siddhi. When you are perfect in spiritual life, you will understand what is your relationship with Krsna automatically. That is called svarupa-siddhi. You have got original relationship with Krsna.

    Nitya-siddha krsna-bhakti. Caitanya-caritamrta. That is a… Just like you are son of some gentleman. That is a fact. It is not that the son becomes father or father becomes son. No. The son is son; the father is father. Similarly, we have got an eternal relationship with Krsna, either as father, or as lover, or as servant, like that.

    So that is self-realization. When you will be perfect in love, in loving Krsna, then in what status of life you will love, that you will under… That will be revealed. That is called svarupa-siddhi.

    So svarupa-siddhi is not something artificial. When one becomes perfectly spiritually realized, then he understands what is his relationship with Krsna and he begins his service in that relationship as father, as friend, as guru, or as servant, like that.
