Jayapatākā Swami: Interesting question. We don’t want to be a kṛpaṇa – a miser. You are saying how you understand the guru is doing so much for you! But you don’t feel grateful! Is that the way to feel? If someone saves you from a car accident, should you feel grateful? If someone is saving you from repeated birth and death, should you feel grateful? If you don’t feel grateful, definitely you should be crying. If you are not crying, Śrīla Prabhupāda said, you should cry that you are not crying! And if you are not crying that you are not crying, then you should be crying, that you are not crying for crying! It goes on like that!
