Shedding tears will purify your mind, everyone remember this, memorize this statement of Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj. Cry out to God like an innocent child, Shree Krishna (God) will come running. Throw away all your knowledge, all the dirt-garbage that you have accumulated. When you realize yourself to be an insignificant, weak, shelter less, humble, fallen sinful soul, from within, then tears will start flowing incessantly, then your mind will be purified, and then Guru will Grace you. With the Grace of your Guru, you will see Shree Krishna (God), you will receive the Love of Shree Krishna (God) and you will be blissful forever.

There are just 2 areas - Divine God and the material world. The mind alone is the performer of all good and bad actions. If the mind is attached to God, you will attain Divine Knowledge and Divine Bliss. If your mind remains attached to the material world, you will continue to suffer in ignorance and misery.
Therefore, you should always practice detaching the mind from the world, and attaching it to God alone. For this, rupadhyana, loving remembrance of Shri Radha Krishna is absolutely essential. Attentively listen to the divine words of your Guru, strictly follow his instructions and engage yourself in devotional chanting, Sankirtana.
Always feel the presence of Shri Krishna and your Guru with you! Avoid committing spiritual transgessions.

Patience, Humility, Modesty are all divine qualities, you should increase these. The more these qualities increase, the more your Sadhana has progressed and one person tells you a sentence and you are feeling it from within then you have not done Sadhana. You are under a false impression. You are merely uttering Ram Ram, Shyam Shyam, Radhey Radhey, this is not enough. (Always remember to do Roop Dhyan, bring God in your mind). Increase so much humility that you develop this hobby that someone criticizes you and you do not feel it. Someone says in front of you that you are selfish, cunning, a cheat and a miser and you are feeling happy - Yes, you are right. Only Hari and Guru should remain in your mind, there should be no other matter of Raag or Dvesh (Matter of Love or Hatred) in your mind. You all practice this for your own welfare and it will also make Me happy.

Jag mah such dukh dukh dou nahi, As ur dhari le gyan |
Sukh mane dukh milat hai, Sukh na Jagat mah maan || Bhakti Shatak
There is neither happiness nor sorrow in the world, this knowledge shoul be firm in the mind. When we believe that there is happiness in the world, when it is snatched away from us, we experience sorrow.
The world is made up of Maya. Still there are 3 entities in it - 1. Brahm (God) 2. Jeev (Soul) and 3. Maya
The soul as well as Maya are powers of God. Maya is jad (lifeless) whereas the soul has is chetan (has life). The material mayic lifeless world is present in front of us, everyone also knows the soul. Only God is omnipresent but cannot be seen with the material eyes. The material world is meant for the utilization of the soul. So, the Vedas state that -
Bhokta Bhogya Preritaram cha Matwa proktam Brahmamenatatah || (Sveta. Up. 1-11)
You will say that is the material world is mean for the utilization of the souls then why are we told to practice detachment from the world? And why don't we experience complete happiness in the world? This material world is meant for the utilization of the world not over-involvement.
The bodies of the souls are material and the world is also material. So, for the material world is meant for the utilization to keep the bodies alive. But, the soul is divine. So,
Chinmatram Shri Hareransham Sukshmamsharamvyayam |
Krushnadhinmiti Prahujirvam Gyangunashrayam || (Veda)
Bhagwat states that -
Atma Nityovyayam Shudh Ekam Shetrajjam Aashrayamah |
Avikriyam Svadruga Hetuvyarpakosagyanavrutah || (Bhag. 7-7-11)
When the soul is an eternal divine entity, then its subject may also be divine. The material world cannot possibly be the subject of the divine soul. Naturally, every part naturally loves its whole. So, the soul is also naturally desiring the eternal divine unlimited happiness of God who is present everywhere in the world which is the subject of the soul.
The false sense of happiness that we experience in the world, is the result of the imagination of our mind. If we did not believe that there is happiness in the world then our sorrows would automatically be finished.
Everyone does not get the same amount of happiness from same thing in the world. When a person constantly forms a belief that there is happiness in an object or a person, he gets attached to it. Then, he desires that object or person. Then, in the fulfillment of that desire, he receives temporary happiness. This is the same reason why a beggar who is a mother receives happiness from her son even though he maybe squint and ugly. A drunkard receives happiness from alcohol. A Pandit may not be able to stand the sight of alcohol and receive unhappiness from it. If there was happiness in alcohol then even the Pandit would have recieved the same amount of happiness from it.
Even the imagined happiness in the world is not equal for everyone. A thirsty person receives a lot of happiness from water and a lustful man recieves happiness from a lustful woman. This happiness also decreases with the passage of every moment. When a mother who has lost her infant since many days first finds him and embraces him for the first time after she finds him, she experiences tremendous happiness, then again in the second and thrird embrance the happiness decreases and then she may even feel detached from it.

“Taistanyadhani puyante tapodaanjapadibhi
Nadharmajam taddhrudaym tadpishandhrisewaya”( Part 6-2-27)
“Vedic karm such as charity, fire sacrifice, penance, fasting etc does destroy sin, but it cannot purify the heart.” You may ask that when sins are destroyed, will not the heart be automatically purified? But it is not so. Let us say that a person has committed the sin of killing a cow. If he performs the atonement for it according to Vedic karm, his sin will be destroyed, but his sinful mentality will remain. Thus, he will commit sin again. Now, he may repeatedly commit sin, and then do the atonement for it, but the heart will never be purified in this way.
Secondly, the sin is committed in a short time, but the performance of the atonement takes an exceedingly long time. Besides, even if we suppose that all the present sins have been destroyed through actions of atonement, there will still be innumerable accumulated sins from endless past lifetimes. These will never be destroyed even by repeated atonement, because the accumulated sins of endless past lifetimes are infinite. Thus, to purify the heart, devotion has to be performed. Adi Shankaracharya has said:
“Shudhayati hi naantratma krishnapadambhoj Bhaktiyuke”
“Without devotion to the Supreme Lord Shree Krishn, the heart can never be cleansed.” And when the heart is not cleansed, there is no guarantee that external repentance for sins will prevent the person from committing sins in the future. The conclusion is that the mere performance of karm without devotion, is not only incapable of giving liberation, it does not even result in the purification of the heart.

Everyone has faults. Instead of accepting our shortcoming and trying to improve upon them, we try to hide them. We refuse to accept that we are faulty. On the contrary, we try to exaggerate our good qualities before others, including our level of devotion. We try to show off that we are high level devotees. We do not realize that whatever progress we have made on this path due to the mercy of God and Guru.

In Bhagwad Geeta Shree Krishna tells Arjuna: “O Arjun! Abandoning all concerns of religiosity and irreligiosity, simply surrender to Me. Then I, who dispense justice to all, will cease to be a mere judge. Bestowing My Grace, I will pardon all the sins of your innumerable past lives, and grant you liberation.” This is the immense Grace of God? In the world, even if a criminal surrenders himself to the law, he is made to suffer punishment for his past crimes. But God is so Merciful that once you surrender to Him, He not only forgives all past deeds, but also bestows His Divine Bliss for the rest of eternity. If this is not Causeless Grace, then what is? Hence, the objection that God demands a price for His Grace is refuted. If a washer man were to clean our clothes and not charge us for it, we would say that he has done us a favor, even though the clothes could become dirty again. In comparison, when we surrender our mind and intellect to God, He cleans them forever, and that too, without any charge. When a woman marries, she automatically becomes the owner of her husband’s property. Similarly, when we surrender to God, we immediately become possessors of his unlimited Knowledge, Bliss and Love.
