True Form of Devotion to Radha Krishn

True Form of Devotion to Radha Krishn
- Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj

Jagadguru Kripaluji Maharaj at Radha Madhav Dham, USA



Devotion to Radha KrishnThe desire of your inner self is to be absolutely happy forever which is only possible after God realization, because God Himself is Divine Bliss Whose supreme blissful and loving form is Radha Krishn. Thus, to receive the selfless Divine love of Radha Krishn is the ultimate goal of your life; and that Divine love is received with the Grace of a rasik Saint when the heart of a dedicated devotee is completely purified through correct devotion.

You should know that the true devotion starts only after surrendering to a true Saint, because the experience of true affinity for God, which is the beginning of bhakti, is received with the Grace of a Saint. Devotion (bhakti) is not only observing the worshipping formalities as normally people do; it is the humble dedication of your heart when it yearnfully longs to receive the vision and love of your only beloved Radha Krishn. Thus, to develop such feelings of love in your heart follow these devotional guidelines.

Relationship: Constantly remember that Radha Krishn are truly yours. They are the eternal Beloved of your soul, whereas all the worldly relations are only physical and futile.

Humbleness: A devotee should be humble, tolerant, forgiving and of helping nature. Instead of finding fault in others you should humbly look into your own faults and try to overcome your weaknesses.

Devotion: Have full faith in Radha Krishn and your Divine Master. With such a faith and dedicated humbleness you should remember the ‘name’ of Radha Krishn all the time in your heart, and, at the same time, try to feel the presence of Radha Krishn and your Divine Master near you. Apart from that, every day you should do regular devotion, in which, while meditatively remembering Them, listen (or do) the chanting of the name, virtues and the leelas of Radha Krishn.

Precautions: Spiritual transgressions, adverse thinking and wrong associations spoil the effects of devotion, and block the devotional receptivity of your heart; and reading or listening to impersonalistic views ruin the feeling of humbleness and sprout subtle vanity in the mind of a devotee. So they must be avoided.

Remember! Only Radha Krishn are yours; love Them, serve Them and live for Them, and They will make you Their own forever.
