Jayapataka Swami: We don’t think we are worthy of the Lord’s mercy, that’s why it’s causeless mercy. We don’t see ourselves as the cause. Rather we have no such qualities, and the Lord, if He gives us His mercy, that is His blessing. One disciple at the Kumbha-melā asked Śrīla Prabhupāda, you said that one gets devotional service, if they have done all these spiritual practices. But in my life when I look back, I don’t see any such qualifications, how did I get devotional service? Śrīla Prabhupāda said, “I made your good fortune for you”.
