In this material world, each and every living entity is suffering some sort of misery on account of one’s previous actions (karma). No matter how much the conditioned living entities endeavor to escape distress , it is impossible for them to do so, as distress is the very nature of this temporary material manifestation. We all try our best to live a peaceful and happy life, yet troubles come uninvited and remind us of the hellish situation that we are in.
We see, however, that the pure devotees of the Lord are always in bliss. They live peacefully even within the material energy. These great personalities, even though present in this material world, are beyond the jurisdiction of the external energy of the Lord. Rather, they are always immersed in internal mediation upon the Supreme Lord Sri Krsna, the embodiment of all sweetness. The secret to their blissful demeanor and their ability to step on the head of all problems in life lies in the following verse from Sri Caitanya-caritamrta:
kathañcana smṛte yasmin
duṣkaraṁ sukaraṁ bhavet
vismṛte viparītaṁ syāt
śrī-caitanyaṁ namāmi tam
Things that are very difficult to do become easy to execute if one somehow or other simply remembers Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu. But if one does not remember Him, even easy things become very difficult. To this Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu I offer my respectful obeisances.
The secret solution to all problems in life is the continuous remembrance of Sacinandana Gaurahari, the most magnanimous worshipful Lord of the Gaudiya Vaisnavas. Because He is the abode of all auspiciousness, no sort of difficulty can remain in His presence, and remembrance of Lord Gauranga brings us closer to Him. How can a person constantly absorbed in thoughts of the son of Jagannath Mishra be affected by any difficulties? Just as the shining sun removes all darkness and the absence of the sun is the cause of darkness, similarly forgetfulness of Sri Gaurasundar is the actual root cause of all distress. What can one expect if he does not remember one’s only well-wisher, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu? Therefore, when a person faces any difficulty in life, if he thinks of Sri Gauranga. he is sure to be protected from the detrimental effects of an obstacle and instead, his enthusiasm for spiritual life will increase.
But why wait for difficult times to call out to Sri Nadiya-bihari Gaurahari? Remembrance of Him at all times is the only means of becoming absorbed in eternal transcendental bliss. Merely the endeavor to constantly remember Him will make our lives sublime.
