Enter into devotional service

Q. How can we enter into devotional service ?

A. Devotional service is dependent on the mercy of Krishna and His devotees. Unless we surrender to the lotus feet of a pure devotee, it is not possible to come to the platform of pure devotional service. By his own efforts a bee cannot taste the honey within a bottle. The bottle must be opened by a superior. If the bee simply licks the outside of the bottle, thinking “Now I am tasting honey,” then he is in illusion. Similarly, no one can enter into devotional service unless the door is opened by a devotee.

The Lord Jesus said to those he would call to Bhakti-- "Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends." Revelation3:20

The call is the moment of joy, the moment when we take that first step into devotional service.
Even though my svadharma is different than yours the goal is disirelessness. For me as a devotee of the Lord Jesus Christ, my acceptance of his call to me sets me off towards devotion.

It is the moment when my hand moves toward the doorknob with the determination to open that door and heed and obey the call that I enter in to devotional service.

I will sit and eat prasadam and enjoy the loving radiance of the Lord.

peace to the assembled devotees, Yeshudas
