Radhanath Swami on God is with us at Every Moment

When we’re making a garland, when we’re reading scriptures, when we’re chanting, when we’re cleaning the temple or whatever service we’re doing - management or book distribution or taking care of our child or our parents or studying in school with a spiritual purpose, we should have such faith that Krishna is accepting my service at every moment. Whatever service we may be doing, it’s important that we have complete faith that here and now, at this very moment, He is present. Present in my heart, present in between every atom, present in the effulgence of Brahman, present in the moon and in the sun. Krishna is watching, hearing, responding, accepting my efforts and if I’m doing it properly, Krishna at this very moment is pleased with me. That is bhakti, not that “I’ll please Krishna tomorrow, today there are some other things I have to deal within my mind”. Tomorrow never comes in that sense.

    Very important statement Radhanath Swami makes here "Whatever service we may be doing, it’s important that we have complete faith that here and now, at this very moment, He is present".
