Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
The Lord is attracted only to devotion. Once, on a stormy night all houses were destroyed but for Nãmdev's house which was but a small hut. In the morning he was stunned to find the hut still holding against the storm. He came out only to find Pãnduranga holding his hut with a hand. Is it necessary for the Omnipotent One to come down to the earth to hold the hut with His hands? Could He not have done this from His abode in Vaikunta? But, this was only to show His 'premai' (Love) and 'soulabhya' (easy access) to His Bhakta.
