Jayapataka Swami: The question is whether you are making the same mistake again or again or different mistakes? If you are making the same mistake again and again, then you can talk to your spiritual master or siksa guru, what is the problem? Why you are doing the same mistake again and again? But if it is a different mistake, then Krsna is teaching you what areas you are weak in. So you have to strengthen yourself. That is why we worship Balarama, because He gives bala, He gives spiritual strength by which one can cross over the obstacles. Rama means spiritual bliss, Balarama, the strength and bliss. So if you have mercy of Lord Balarama, to have the spiritual strength and to have the spiritual bliss, what is the problem? JAI LORD BALARAMA KI JAI!
