Jayapataka Swami: We went to the Arda Kumbha Mela in Prayag and Srila Prabhupada was giving a lecture. So he said, if someone took to bhakti yoga he already performed all other yagnas and sacrifices. One devotee asked after the lecture, ‘in my whole life I have not done any pious activity! I think I only did sinful activities. So you say that if we come to bhakti yoga, we have already done all the spiritual activities, but I didn’t do! So how do I get the good fortune?’ So Srila Prabhupada answered him, ‘I MADE YOUR GOOD FORTUNE FOR YOU!’ So due to your activities, or due to your guru kripa, somehow or another we should be careful not to lose it. It is not important how you got it! Somehow we got it. Maybe by guru kripa, maybe by previous sukriti or may be a combination of both, whatever it is, we have bhakti yoga, and we should guard it like a treasure. Haribol!
