Divine Quest, 5


Some of us are involved in collecting donations for the ashram and so most of our time is spent planning and thinking about this service. As a result, we are not able to perform rupadhyana. What will become of us?

Since your thinking, chintan is related to your service, seva it will be counted as devotional practice, sadhana. In reality, doing seva is devotional practice as well as being our ultimate goal, siddhi. By doing seva your heart and mind will become purified and therefore it is devotional practice.

In case a devotee leaves his body during a period of devotional practice, who shall be his Guru in his next birth?

The same Guru will guide that devotee in his next birth. Having said that, his Guru can hand that devotee to another Guru if he feels the need to do so.

Is it true that if one dies in Vrindavan he will reach God's abode?

No. Nothing is possible without performing devotional practice. 

Are divine experiences related to devotional practice?

Yes. In particular the degree of bliss during such experiences depends on your level of devotional practice.
