I Can't Afford NOT To Surrender To Krishna


The Bhagavad-gita says unsuccessful yogis take birth in rich families. We've see some devotees who seem to fit that description. They're born in wealthy families. They don't have to scrape by. They have the leisure to inquire and to devote themselves entirely. Sometimes I think, "Well, they're renouncing and surrendering completely because they can afford to. Most of us have to make money."

Then I think of myself—not born in a rich family, not pious—an unsuccessful bhogi with so many sinful reactions from bad karma. I'm one of those who can't afford not to surrender completely, or else my future is very dark, materially and spiritually.
