Finding Spiritual Friends

Just as a person who desires to improve his tennis will seek out tennis experts and enthusiasts, so a person interested in spiritual life will want like-minded friends. But where do we find them? And even if we meet students of self-realization and God consciousness, does it mean we will automatically develop loving friendships with them? The scripture states, “Seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” And so it is with spiritual friendships.

The surest way to find God conscious companions is to join with the topmost pure devotees, saints, and sages. Although most of them lived many centuries ago, we can be with them now in their writings, their teachings, and through their living followers. Although the pure devotees of a past age are not walking the earth today, we can become kindred spirits with them and benefit in a very personal way in their association.

According to Vedic knowledge, there are two ways to become intimate with advanced spiritual persons.

It emphasises the importance of arranged marriages and horoscope matching over the modern concept of love marriages.

His letter and the article he sent is available below.

Please pray before you search

In all of our endeavors we need to get the mercy of the Lord and only by the mercy of Krishna can we get anything.

Srila Prabhupada advised us to pray to Krishna and constantly chant His Holy Names.

“Only by God’s grace can one get a nice wife just as he desires. Similarly, it is only by God’s grace that a girl gets a husband suitable to her heart. Thus it is said that if we pray to the Supreme Lord in every transaction of our material existence, everything will be done nicely and just suitable to our heart’s desire. In other words, in all circumstances we must take shelter of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and depend completely on His decision. Man proposes, God disposes.”

(Srimad Bhagavatam 3.21.28 Bhaktivedanta Purport).

So let us all pray for the mercy of the Lord to engage us nicely in His service in our respective ashrams and also to put us in the best possible situation to get the blessings of His devotees.

Hare Krishna !
