"Question: Is praying for the revelation of the Absolute more important than glorification of the Absolute?
Śrīla Śrīdhar Mahārāj: Yes. “Please, You reveal within me what truth is, who am I, where am I, what is my goal of life, and how to reach there. Why am I suffering? I do not know how to get out of this miserable life, so please help me. I do not know, but only I can guess that You are goodness, ecstasy, and happiness. I want You. I am much tired of my present situation; I cannot tolerate it any longer. Please take me up.”
Question: Should that type of prayer be given more importance and stressed more than the glorification of the Absolute?
Śrīla Śrīdhar Mahārāj: The prayer to the highest degree that we find is: “I want Your connection. You may utilise me. You may think me to be Yours, and keeping me in Your connection, utilise me according to Your sweet will. I have no particular claim nor aspiration that I must attain this or that, but only I want to be Your faithful servant, and so You please utilise me in any way You like. Only that inseparable connection with You I want. I am Your slave—I want to be Your slave. Your connection I want, Your sincere connection, and You know best what connection that is. I do not know what is what, but You know what is best. Only consider me as Your own and utilise me.” That should be the nature of our prayer.
Question: Should we have a desperate mood?
Śrīla Śrīdhar Mahārāj: Desperate? That will depend on the particular disciple. As much sure a conception he gets of his high prospect, he becomes desperate to that degree. Surrender means to be desperate: “Whatever may come, let it come, but I surrender to You. I have got such confidence in You. I am surrendering to You, and if any revolting forces of the environment come to attack me, then I am to tolerate that.”
An example is Prahlād Mahārāj who received so many tortures even from his so-called near relative, his father. There are several similar examples. If you are śaraṇāgata, surrendered, to Him, then you may have to suffer many things because of that, and if you don’t become desperate, then you will have to come back. With a desperate mentality, you are to tolerate all the tortures that will come against you, and still you won’t budge an inch from your path of progress. That must be. We must be prepared for any injury in any event. Anything may come, known or unknown, supposed or unsupposed. Anything may come, but we are to remain strong in our position. Fixing our eye on Him, it is worth suffering from all types of pains. To stand because “I am standing for the truth” will be my solace.
Even in political matters, we find that when one is made captive, he must be prepared for any sort of torture. Perhaps for earning money, the spy is also working by wandering in the enemy’s land, but, if detected, he may have to face all kinds of torture. No risk, no gain! If for the truth, if for my endeavour to meet the truth, so many opposing forces revolt against me, then what to do? I shall stand with my head erect: “I am not doing anything wrong.” At the same time, like Christ, one should pray, “O Father, they know not what they do, forgive them. They do not know what wrong things they are doing to me. Forgive them.”
Prahlād Mahārāj advises that whatever adverse circumstances may come to disturb us, we should try to not only see them as opposing and undesirable but we are required to see them as quite befitting: “It should come and is coming through the will of my good, well-wishing Lord. Very kindly He is sending these apparently unfavourable things to me, but here is His grace.” We shall try to read positive sympathy in the pain and not only negative opposition. One thing to note is that nothing can come without His sanction, so it is coming to me with His sanction. There can be no spirit of retaliation in Him; therefore, the pain has come for some purpose: to purify me. This positive end is there. He is trying to finish the bad consequences of my previous actions. “I would otherwise have had to undergo the bad consequences of my actions for a long time to come, but perhaps He is making that intense in order to be finished within a very short time. Therefore, it is His grace.” If with this attitude we can face this danger that surrounds us, then very easily we are released from all such opposing forces.
When the mother is punishing her child, affection is in the background. There is no spirit of retaliation; rather, there is the spirit of affection. She wants to correct him. But when the child takes the attitude, “Yes. More punishment is required, Mother. I have done so many misdeeds, more punishment is necessary for me.” Then the mother will release him very soon: “Oh, he has understood that he did wrong, so he should be released now.” The result of punishment is reached, and so the punishment should be withdrawn."

"No ser amable es una condición anómala del alma. La amabilidad es intrínseca al alma. Grosería, descortesía, ser perverso con otros, es una condición enferma del alma y las causas que nos ciegan son orgullo, lujuria, ira, envidia, codicia, locura y ilusión. De hecho, estos son los verdaderos y únicos enemigos que enfrentamos en esta existencia y según el señor Krishna, están establecidos dentro de nosotros. No hay enemigos externos, sólo internos. Sadhana significa vencer a esos enemigos diariamente."

Los Vedas nos dicen: «¡Om!». Om significa un gran «¡Sí!». Lo que andan buscando ¡existe!, no se desilusionen. Los Vedas nos explican que el objeto de nuestra búsqueda interna existe. La búsqueda común de todos los corazones existe y su sed será saciada. Ustedes, por su constitución, existen para ese propósito y lo merecen, así que no teman, no se acobarden. Ya está dado en su ser y nunca podrán quedar satisfechos con ninguna otra cosa. Entonces, prepárense, tras su prolongada búsqueda, para recibir en su plena forma y calidad ese néctar por tanto tiempo anhelado. ¡Despierten! ¡Levántense! Busquen su fortuna, y no podrán sino obtenerla; es su patrimonio, es la riqueza de su propia alma, y no puede encontrarse sino dentro de ustedes. No tienen que ocuparse en otro asunto que no sea krishna-nusandhana, La búsqueda de Sri Krisna: La Hermosa Realidad.

Todos están buscando rasa, placer; la jerarquía del rasa es la más alta de todas. Como personas tenemos nuestra existencia subjetiva, pero rasa, el placer, tiene Su existencia supersubjetiva. Es una persona; es akhila rasamrita murtih: la fuente de todo placer. Es Krisna. Rasa es Krisna. En ninguna otra parte puede haber rasa, sino en Krisna. Él es la fuente original de todas las diferentes clases de rasa. Así que, debido a la naturaleza de nuestra constitución, hemos de emprender la búsqueda de Krisna.

Las cosas adquiridas mediante la razón no te van a satisfacer. En realidad, el conocimiento, jñåna, no puede saciar tu sed, así que, en lugar de brahma-jijñåsa, acepta krsnanusandhåna y emprende la búsqueda de Sri Krisna.
¿Dónde está Krisna? Nuestra verdadera necesidad solo será satisfecha si adoptamos el servicio a Krisna, y de ninguna otra manera. Queremos satisfacer las exigencias más íntimas de nuestros corazones. No nos interesa saber dónde estamos ni qué es lo que controla todo, más bien deseamos satisfacer nuestra sed de rasa, de madhurya, de dulzura. No debemos buscar conocimiento, tampoco al controlador de este mundo; busquemos rasa, anandam, la belleza y el encanto.

Sri Chaitanya Mahåprabhu y el Srimad-Bhagavatam nos han enseñado qué pedir, a qué orar, qué se debe desear. Ellos nos instruyeron: «Si mendigas, mendiga Krisna, y nada más».

Por consiguiente, el destino de los Vaishavas, los estudiantes del Bhagavata y los seguidores de Mahaprabhu, están irrevocablemente determinados hacia la búsqueda de Sri Krisna. No deseamos nada, sino a Krisna. Los Vedas dicen (srinvantu visve amritasya putråh): «¡Oh, ustedes, hijos del néctar, hijos del oceáno nectarino!, por favor, escúchenme. Ustedes nacieron en el néctar; nacieron para probar el néctar, y no deben sentirse satisfechos con nada que no sea ese néctar. Así que, sin importar qué tan extraviados se encuentren en el presente, ¡despierten!, ¡levántense! Busquen ese néctar, esa satisfacción».
