Lord Krishna’s Everlasting Grace
About the Author
When I reread the story, “Lord Krishna’s Everlasting Gift,” I am filled with fond remembrance of my father, who passed away eight months ago. He came from a large family of thirteen siblings; when he was growing up, food was very simple and in limited servings. Hence, he did not like wasting food. He often referred to the story of the Akshaya Patra
which demonstrates the value of offering even one grain of food to God.
I realize that my father’s teaching combined with my Guru’s teachings have instilled in me a deep reverence for food. Measuring carefully, sharing, and appreciating what is on my plate brings me great joy.
I have read this story quite a few times before. But this time it gave me a totally different perspective. The most striking aspect for me was what Lord Krishna said about what happens “when one’s duty is performed as an offering to God.” This has inspired me to do my daily work with new vision and renewed energy.
Although I was feeling some reluctance, I recently reached out to someone because I knew in my heart that it was the right thing to do. Our conversation turned out to be a gift for both of us, and I was so grateful and truly uplifted by the loving transformation I experienced.
Then, I read this touching story of Draupadi’s faith and devotion, and I recognized anew my good fortune to be on the Siddha Yoga path.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for teaching me both to recognize my own inner guidance and to remember the grace that is always waiting in the wings to expand my heart.
This morning, there was an issue that was weighing on my heart. I came to the Siddha Yoga path website to find comfort. In reading the tale of "Lord Krishna's Everlasting Grace," I was reminded that by following the Siddha Yoga path, I am always in the presence of grace. As the story teaches, even concerns that appear insurmountable have a resolution if I remain steadfast in my faith. My heart feels so much lighter!
I thank Shri Gurumayi every day for the gifts I find on this website that provide me with support and guidance.
