10.10: Transform pains and strains into gains

by November 16, 2011

When we serve Krishna lovingly, he gifts us the intelligence by which we can transform the pains of yesterday and the strains of today into the gains of tomorrow. This special Krishna-bestowed intelligence, which the Bhagavad-gita (10.10) calls as buddhi-yoga, enables us to not just go through, but to grow through, the pains and strains; Krishna guides us to intelligently take his shelter in such a way that those situations go, while we grow. And when we grow closer to Krishna in devotion, that growth is life’s ultimate gain.
