When a person surrenders to his enemy then he loses all his glory. The surrender is too painful for him. But when one surrenders to the will of the Lord then the surrender is not painful but it’s joyful. It brings joy to both – the Lord and the one who surrenders to him.
Every one of us has to surrender to Lord at some point of time. The decision is ours. We have to decide when we want to surrender. If we do not surrender to Krishna willingly then at the time of death we will be forced to surrender. When Krishna exhibited his all devouring Universal form to Arjuna then Arjuna was not just bewildered but was terrified. He pleaded Krishna to come back to his 2 handed sweet form. So we have to decide if we want to surrender to sweet Krishna who is the darling of all the brajvasis, or do we want to surrender to all devouring fear personified Krishna in the form of death.
In the material world surrender means accepting defeat. But here surrender means accepting the ultimate reality. It’s like a rebellious child surrendering to his father. When a child surrenders to his father then his father not only accepts him with open arms but also forgets and forgives his all previous mistakes. Similarly Krishna is waiting for us with his open arms to embrace us. We just need to turn towards him and say – Krishna I am yours. Please accept me.
