    In reality if we analyse - are we the doers really? After all everything happens as Krsna desires so where does our endeavour fit in?

    Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not carry sins for lifetimes. Forgiving others is the best attitude to take! Love others even if you don't like them.

    Thus the seventh pregnancy of Devaki signifies the appearance of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. After the six sons Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and Matsarya are killed, the Shesha incarnation (Lord Balarama) creates a suitable situation for the appearance of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. In other words, when one awakens his natural Krsna consciousness, Lord Krsna appears.

    So the point we have to understand is that we are always looking for short-term benefits whereas Krishna is looking after our long-term welfare. Best is to submit to the will of the Lord whatever it may be (daiva labdhena santosha) and our heads must be in understanding Srimad Bhagavatam and putting it into practice.

    We are not capable of doing anything without Krsna’s mercy even though it may as trivial as this experience of mine and There is a purpose behind everything that happens in our lives which is beyond our very limited capacity to understand and The best thing to do is to humbly carry on rendering loving devotional service to Krsna to the best of our abilities.
