The Nectar of Devotion–72/10/24 Vrndavana
1017) Whether I know what sraddha is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———– So by this devotonal process, adau sraddha tatah sadhu-sangah, that love… Sadhakanam ayam premnah pradurbhave bhavet kramah [Cc. Madhya 23.14-15].
There are stages, or steps, one after another, if we practice. Sadhu-sange, sato vrtteh sadbhir bhaktih prasidhyati. Srila Rupa Gosvami says that potent love for Krsna can be reinstated again, invoked again, by the prescribed method. Sadhu-sange sato vrtteh sadbhir bhaktih prasidhyati. Utsahan dhairyat niscayat. When you get little taste of love of Krsna… Just like we are sitting here. We have got little taste for loving Krsna. Otherwise, why we should waste our time in this way? This is called sraddha. —————————
