‘There were two trees in the courtyard and these two trees were the sons of Kubera. Kubera is the god of money and he had two sons cursed by Narada Muni due to their pride and arrogance. So Thakurji said, “It’s time to deliver them now.” He went crawling, pulling the mortar behind him, and went in between the two trees with it. He pulled the stone so hard that the trees fell. You know, Kubera stands for material wealth. Very often when people have material wealth, what awakens inside of them is also pride of what they have and arrogance. They think that this will last forever. It lasts only until life lasts, that’s it. More than that, no. As long as you breathe. The moment you breathe your last breath it is finished. Pride and arrogance are normal in somebody’s life. Because you have a mind and the mind has hundreds of negative qualities which very often one likes to entertain. But once you are in connection, and once you build your relationship to God, these qualities start to leave you. They start disappearing because you don’t need these qualities. So the same, when the Grace of Krishna awakens itself in the heart of a bhakta, pride and arrogance start disappearing. Krishna frees the bhakta who is surrendered to Him from these qualities.’ – Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda #paramahamsavishwananda #bhaktimarga #bhaktimargausa #justlove #krishna #lordkrishna #karthik #god #money #thakurji #spiritualawakening #spiritual #wealthy #mind #relationship #grace #bhakti #bhaktiyoga #meditation #spirituality #inspiration #quotes #quoteoftheday #yoga #guru #yogisofinstagram #namaste #god #blessing #prayer
