In the path of devotion, four things are important:
- God’s name – Sing God’s name with others and chant His name in solo.
- God’s place – Devotion is nurtured by visiting God’s holy places such as Gokul, Dwarka etc.
- God’s pastimes – God has incarnated and done these pastimes to give joy to devotees.
- God’s form – God incarnates in various forms for His devotees.
In reality, no one is independent. We are all inter-dependent. Will you be able to live without food, air, sun etc? Equally, one human being needs another human being. We must learn to value other human beings. We need the nature and other human beings. Dharma is creating harmony with other. This is the art of living which is religion.
Shri Krishna is a universal Guru because his thoughts and philosophy are applicable in the present times to all. He teaches us through His pastimes.
