"What determines if we will do bhajana or not do bhajana? Whose desire determines this? Bhagavan's? No, it is ours only. If we simply take up bhajana, then guru and the Vaisnavas will be merciful and give us the necessary strength to achieve the direct mercy of Bhagavan. But first of all the desire must come from within us." -Srila Gurudeva from Chapter Nine of 'Sri Prabandhavali'
