Opportunity knocks at the door once – so grab it!


Those who bring Krishna in their lives invite auspiciousness in their lives. In Srimad Bhagavatam 1.5.17 it is described, “If someone gives up all material prospects and takes complete shelter of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, there is no loss or degradation in any way.” Krishna loves everyone equally but he is more favorably inclined towards those who are his devotees. “Those who follow this imperishable path of devotional service and who completely engage themselves with faith, making Me the supreme goal, are very, very dear to Me.” (Bhagavad – Gita 12.20). We have a wonderful opportunity to bring auspiciousness in our lives. But sometimes due to our laziness or due to the influence of our friends or family members we hesitate to take up devotional life.  It is said that opportunity knocks at the door once and we should grab it with both hands. In future whether we will again get the opportunity or not we don’t know. In devotional life there is always again and a guarantee of success. “In this endeavor there is no loss or diminution, and a little advancement on this path can protect one from the most dangerous type of fear.” (Bhagavad – Gita 2.40)
