What is submissive hearing

It means putting aside all your preconceived ideas, accepting yourself to be a fool and being willing to accept the superior authority without challenging the spiritual master and great sadhus. To open your heart, to open your mind, to open your ears, and to hear

Love and Trust

Love and trust breaks down when we have separate interests, separate motives, when we want to be the enjoyer, when we want to be the proprietor, when we want to be the controller.

Love and trust is established when we want ONE thing – to be the humble servant, to be the humble servant of Krishna, of the spiritual master, of the sadhus (saintly people), to be the humble servant especially of one another. You cannot separate Guru from his devotees.

Radhanath Swami on surrender
