The given shelter

first we have to know, who is Visnu, how is Visnu expanding, then we come to understand that who is the original form of Visnu, that same Krishna is Visnu. That Visnu is unlimited, He is the original person, that He is beyond death, He is immortal, He is beyond karma. Being beyond karma, this is so important. Everything we do has a karma. How do we get rid of the karmas? Even if you do pap, or you do punya, it doesn’t counteract each other. When you serve the Lord, because He is beyond the karma’s, that means the karmas go to Him. So He absorbs that karma, and one is then free. So one has to know the science of action, that by….this is explained in Gita that one should know what is karma, what is vikarma, what is akarma. When you serving the Lord in Bhakti, it is akarma, there is no reaction for that. So when the devotee is serving the Lord then he is given the shelter, then he also becomes fearless. Bhajure mana sri nanda nandana abhaya carana ravindra re This abhaya caranarabindra, one who gets fearlessness by taking the shelter of the lotus feet of Sri Nanda Nandana Krishna.
