"There is a song in Rasa. 'What more do I need?' In our Radhika shatakam, the song 'kim mama varaniyam...' also brings out the same bhava (feeling). It is a great fortune which cannot be attained easily (Namakirtan (chanting of the divine names), kathashravanam (spiritual discourse), and Bhagavath kainkaryam (service to the Lord) by the blessings of the Guru.).
When blessed with this kind of a fortune, one feels, and indeed should feel apprenhensive about continuing to do this service without a break. Just as Brahma sang in praise of Lord Krishna, 'Thathre anukampam sukameekshamana:', if one is fortuitous to have received the blessings of the Lord, He himself makes everything favourable to the devotee. In the eleventh canto of Srimad Bhagavatham, Sri Krishna tells Uddhava, 'Mayanukulena', that he makes everything favourable for a life of devotion."
After a brief silence, Sri Sri Anna continued, "In his Prabodhasudhakara, Sri Adishankara says, 'Nidhrahara vihareshwanadhara:'. Likewise, without bothering too much about food, sleep and leisure, one should listen to the discourses on the Lord everyday."
