Radhanath Swami on Devotion to God If God gave you what you wanted, you probably wouldn’t grow much at all, because devotion to God is not about getting, it is about seeking shelter. When you seek shelter, when you give up hope of anything else, you get God.By Radhanath Swami anashreeGenerally we have a tendency to take things for granted if we get them easily. Hence Lord holds it back so that we will learn to value it. Here Maharaj is telling us how important it is to take shelter of the Lord – feeling very helpless and hopeless.
