The symptom of kripa- siddhi.

If someone who’s not following principles gets Krishna prasada, or if someone who’s not following all the devotional principles somehow or other chants Hare Krishna, what will be the result? Well, here, we see that Bali Maharaja, he was not following all the principles of devotional service in a strict way, rather simply by the mercy of Prahlada Maharaja, he was able to surrender unto the Lord. This is the symptom of krpa-siddhi.
