There are many such instances of devotees attaining moksha by the grace of the Guru. This leaves no doubts about the grace of God! That is what Bhagavan emphasizes when He says 'tEshAm aham samuddharthA'.
What sadhana can we do? Just as how we cannot fill water in a vessel that has many holes, any sadhana that we perform without controlling our sense organs, is futile. Bhagavan says if one does not live 'sanniyamya indhriya grAmam' by controlling senses, detaching from the world, having food by taking bhiksha, and developing complete dispassion, one should say, 'saadhana rahitham' and pray "Hey Krishna! I am not taking any efforts. I am repeatedly falling apart. It is You who has to protect me!" Bhakti is the only way!
