Highest Devotee of Lord Krsna

Zenlighted | Shree Krsna

Highest devotee of Krsna

It has been 8.5 years since I came into Spirituality and became the ardent devotee of Lord Shree Krsna. Right from the very first day I met my KrsnaGuru, it became the sole purpose of my life to become His highest devotee and be his everything of everything.

I started learning under the tutelage of my Master various scripture especially the Bhagavad Gita which my Master expounds and teaches all his disciples and devotees to live and follow Krsna’s Way of Life. He also explained to me, that the ultimate goal of a Spiritual aspirant is to become the highest devotee of Lord Krsna. So the questions I asked was Who are the highest devotee of Krsna? What are the criteria to become Krsna’s highest devotee?

The one name of Krsna’s highest devotee that is mentioned by everyone is Srimati Radharani followed by great saints like Meera Bai, Kabir or Tukaram. My master will always narrate various stories depicting the qualities and the criteria to become the highest devotee, which comes with severe and arduous sadhana and penance. The list goes on, and it is not so easy to attain that status.

I made it my goal to be known as Krsna’s highest devotee and disciple not just in this life but eternally. I started to emulate and follow what my Guru taught me and continue with this madness for years giving tests of my faith in my KrsnaGuru endlessly.

When I went to Kolkata in 2009, I met my KrsnaGuru’s foster parents for the first time – Karthik Ganguly (Uncleji) and Geetha Ganguly (Auntyji), unconditionally loving, simplicity, kind, compassionate, and very humble divine beings is what I experienced. Shree is the name which appends Krsna’s, it was the name given to me by Auntyji. I experienced my maternal grandmother in Auntyji. All I could feel was nothing but divine bliss in their cozy little home.

I cherished every moment of my stay with them. Those five days were the best days of my life which I will never forget. After that whenever we have been to Kolkata we just visited them but did not stay with them. Every single visit of mine I experience their unconditional Love for my KrsnaGuru. Both of them are old yet would exude so much of energy in serving my Guru.

Uncleji who is 80 + years old will go to market for buying everything that he would like to offer to Krsna. Auntyji will cook the best meal to feed her most loving son she ever had. They would make all the preparations for the lunch well in advance even before we have arrived. They both then wait anxiously to welcome us. When we came, the joy and happiness that shined on their face was the most precious and priceless sight.

Both of them would spend time talking with us and will then serve us the lunch with all the love in this world and only then partake their meal. Their entire life has been a struggle but not once did I ever see them complaining or asking for things from my Guru. They would offer the best from what they have. Uncleji is always lost in the world of Spiritual. He would only talk about God to my Guru. He never spoke anything wrong about anyone or cursed God for not giving them enough. If he wanted he could have asked for things from my Guru but he never did.

On the contrary, he only spoke of how contented he was with his life. My Guru had got him slippers many years ago. He wore the same thing by changing the broken straps. I was in tears experiencing his simplicity, humility, humbleness and above all no ego at all. Similarly, during one of our visits, we offered them some small gift which I quietly placed in their God’s shrine. The next morning he calls my Guru and asks him why have we given them such an expensive gift. They don’t need them and just we visiting them was a priceless gift to them. I was in tears when I heard the conversation. It was the first time it hit me really hard in realising the true meaning of the words having “Unconditional Love and Selfless Service.”

With the passing years, Uncleji has been bedridden due to a fracture in his leg and has undergone many surgeries with no signs of recovery. Since then both of them are enduring terrible pains and sufferings. We could only offer to help them monetarily, but they refused to accept any monetary support from us. They are neither well-to-do nor have any savings. The only livelihood or the income they have is the pension which Uncleji receives for his service in Indian Railways. For whatever reason, we have not been able to visit them yet, but we are checking on their well-being regularly.

Today, I felt the sudden urge to speak with Uncleji, and I immediately called him. I was pleased to hear his voice and experienced the strength he exuded. He enquired about how we were all doing and then said: “I pray to the Lord for your well-being.” He never showed he is sick or suffering. When I asked him about his health, all he said was, he is fighting hard, and the rest is in the hands of the Lord. I could not stop crying. He has so much suffering yet he did not curse God for it nor did he ask for his recovery or money. By the way, the pain that he is going through is not his own. He is suffering for someone else in this world. These divine souls take on people’s suffering. Despite so much of difficulties, he has not asked God to give him anything, on the contrary, he still means good for everyone in this world and shares whatever that little he has with him with others. They live the words “Sharing is Caring.” I have so much to talk about them but no words can ever describe the greatness of these divine souls.

Every single lesson which my KrsnaGuru has been teaching I see it being lived by Uncleji and Auntyji in reality. All that they asked from KrsnaGuru is to meet with him. Today, my head bows down at the feet of these great divine souls in deep reverence and gratitude for showing me how to be the highest devotee of the Lord. Uncleji is the “Highest Devotee of Lord Krsna.” Shree seeks KrsnaGuru’s grace to live “Thy Way of Life and attain Prema unto Thy Lotus Feet” in this life and eternally.

Disown God

Conversations with God | KrsnaKnows

Disown God
 

You know God, more than 50% people in this world are out to disown and bash you up!

Yes dude! I know that.

Aren’t you perturbed or angry about it?

Why should I be? I have made this world and I enjoy it.

Even though there are billions out there willing to disown you if they ever catch you!

It doesn’t make a difference to me. There are trolls everywhere and we should not bother our head about it.

What do you intend to do about them?

Nothing! They will die their own quiet death. Don’t you have half of your nation against one person?

Yes. Yes. But no one likes him. Everything about him is wrong. We are not trolling him but stating facts.

That’s your point of view. Half of the nation is criticizing him. The other half are willing to stake their life for him.

That’s true. But why can’t everyone oppose him? It’s so unfair.

You are opposing him because you have a collective support and you live in a democracy. Do you think you could do it in other nations?

I guess not. Aren’t there people who stand up against in those countries too?

But they get killed or put behind bars or they lose everything in life.

Surely, there are people like Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and many others who do change the entire nation.

That’s because I make it happen. Everything in this world happens by my design alone. Even the current ones and the trolls too.

If you do that then you are the biggest troll of all times. Why do you love to see this world go in a tizzy?

Changes, my dear sir! This world has to undergo major changes in its progress.

But isn’t it masochistic of you? Why would you torment your own people and put them through pain?

You mentioned Gandhi, Mandela and others. If they didn’t do what they were supposed to do then do you think you would be speaking like this to me now?

True. The God of old times would have consigned me to the deepest darkest hells. You are more tolerant now.

I am still the same. But my trolls love doing what they do. Sometimes they project me as benevolent and compassionate God and at other times as a tyrant! It’s alright.

Ha ha. You are joking about it. You know how bad you are! Urban slang, “bad”meaning you are good.

I know. I invented it. Just like marijuana! It was bad earlier and now it is good! Ha ha!

You really love to play your little game, don’t you?

True. Sometimes I become the hero and sometimes the villain in your life. Go and play now.

God, can you make gun licensing very easy for us? I would love to play with guns.

Wow! This is what a little leeway does to you. Go get yourself a toy gun!

Give Me Successes

Conversations with God | KrsnaKnows

Give Me Successes

 
God, you are responsible for giving me successes in my endeavors.

Oh! Why am I responsible for your issues?

Aren’t you called the Father and Mother? You are supposed to take care of us.

You are absolutely right in saying that. I am your Father and Mother. But I am supposed to only look after you till you are capable of handling yourself. Once you grow up, you are on your own.

You mean to say, after that you won’t look after me?

Tell me something. If the son goes and robs the bank, then would you consider the parents responsible?

What do you mean? Surely they are the parents, right? Aren’t they responsible?

Did the parents ever tell their son to rob a bank or did they even teach him to do anything wrong?

No. No parent teaches their child to do anything wrong or bad.

The parents have taken pains to bring the child up. He was given the best of things, education and so on. They provided him with every facility.

That’s true. But then why did he rob the bank? Maybe, it is his destiny!

Maybe it is his destiny. But why would you still think his parents are responsible for his actions and results? After all he deserved to go to prison.

You are right. But God, aren’t you supposed to help us out in troubles? It is said even a leaf will not move without your permission.

As a parent I provide for almost everything through your worldly parents. Once you grow up, it is expected of you to do your duties to everyone. You owe your duties to parents, yourself, family, society, country, world and me!

So that means you aren’t going to help me in any way. What is the use of calling for help then?

Now know that you have been given great education, profession, family, etc.. and made fully functional and capable of handling everything in this world. So it is your sovereign duty to perform in the best possible manner.

Surely, you have given me a healthy body, mind, intellect and so on. But I am not asking for that. I am asking for a little help, that’s all!

Surely my universe will help you and work with you. But you have to first prove yourself. Don’t show your weakness. You have my DNA in you so show the world what you have got.

I am not a cry baby. Just do some magic in my world so that I can get what I want. That’s it. Nothing more.

I understand that. Why don’t you put your first foot forward and then see how my magic works? Every day is a new day. Every day is war. Every day is a struggle. And some days are meant for rest, victory, fame, fortune and ultimately death. Keep marching.

Ok. Ok. I give up. I will do what I can. But before I go can I touch you?

Sure. You are my son.

Ok. I want to touch you for a few thousand dollars if you can give me now. You promised, so you better keep it.

Why Pay Taxes?

Conversations with God | KrsnaKnows

Why Pay Taxes?

Why Pay Taxes?

Why do I need to pay these useless taxes to this stupid government? God, I hate that!

That is the duty of every citizen of that country, so you gotta pay.

It’s easy for you to say that, God, you don’t have to pay any taxes.

Who says that? I too have to maintain this world and I also need funds.

You are God almighty, why would you do such a stupid thing? If you just nod your head you will get so much money.

Ha, ha! That’s exactly how a dumb cluck like you will think.

But I may be dumb but I am not sure why this government can’t print notes to pay for itself?

I am not going to give you a lesson on economics here. Let me just say that if you don’t pay your taxes then you can’t enjoy government facilities like transportation, roads, electricity, water, housing and all other things.

I should go to some other country where there are lesser taxes. That might help.

Everything looks hunky dory from outside son, but once you go there you will be a second class citizen.

You know there are advanced countries better than mine and they respect educated geniuses like me. They will offer me better living conditions. I should think of emigrating seriously.

It’s your choice. Till they think you are good enough, they will honor and respect you but once you show any inefficiency or inadequacy, you will be treated worse than their kitchen cockroaches.

I think I know what you are talking about. There are countries which make your skin color unacceptable. Religion is the root cause of thousands to be displaced. Language also becomes the root cause.

Yes, that’s right! People can find any cause to disown you. Don’t you think you are better off where you are?

You are right God! I am happy where I am. I have a house, family, friends, job, etc.. And places to go to where no one looks at my skin or religion.

Now would you agree that it is better to pay taxes and live a life of peace?

Yes! But I still have a question for you.

And what is that?

Do you know any place in this world like Cayman Islands, Switzerland or some such where I can send my money?

Yes, yes! Before you go out of this place drop it in my collection box and I will keep it safely for you.

You think I am really dumb now. I am not going to do any such thing.

See, you want job, wife, kids, houses, money, peace, happiness, travels, friends, relatives, education, health, leisure, entertainment, transportation and many other things from me and yet you crib paying me anything at all. Shame on you. You want everything free?

But you are my God, my Father and my to-go person! You can surely give me all that.

Ha, ha! You know what happens to those who avoid paying taxes, right? You want facilities, then you better pay up!
