We Are Responsible!
Submitting Our Faults at Nitai’s Lotus feet
All the pain and inconvenience we must endure in this lifetime are the fruits of our previous doings. What is the point in complaining or looking to put the blame on others? We and only we ourselves are responsible for the present circumstances we are put into. Others are only acting as agents of the Supreme authority to give us our due suffering.
The one thing we can do is sing the prayer Nitai mera jivana sada and express to Nitai in a heartfelt manner that we know we are responsible for our present condition but kindly relieve oh Prabhu because You are Doyal, so kind.
This humble supplication at His lotus feet is what will please Him most. Not blaming others for our misery. They are not liable, we are. Nitai will be pleased when he will see our spiritual maturity in accepting our own fault. The Lord is touched by our attitude and our mood of devotional service. That is what assures our advancement. This humble, honest and heartfelt submission at Nitai’s lotus feet redeems all our previous actions. It will ensure our rapid progress as Nitai will remove each thorn from our path with His own lotus hands. Suffering is also a great time to please the Lord.
