Pride and Dependency




“We need mercy. If we are proud, then Krishna is looking at us, and pride means-I don’t need. I don’t need. I am by my own power. So Krishna says, yes you are by your own power, you don’t need.But if you are humble, which means that you actually realize that you are dependent on that absolute reality, then that mercy flows. And the more humble you are the greater the force you feel of that mercy, like gravity. The higher you put something, and the lower you put yourself, the more you feel the mercy of that exalted…”
— Dhanurdhara Swami
