Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Everyone has only one support!
Power of wealth, body, men and every such thing would leave you one day. Only one would remain with you. "Nănyam tatah padmapalăsalochanăd." The power ('balam') of Yoga, tapas, dhyana, Atma vichara, Jnana would leave you.
Only one 'balam' would remain. What is it? "K R U P A!" (Grace). That Narayana is the only saviour for all in the world.

Oh, my son! Time is passing by. You have lots of relatives and friends. You possess good health. You are intelligent and capable. You earn quite a lot and are leading a comfortable life. But have you not thought of the day that every one has to face?
Only that grace of the Guru would stand by you
Rama is the help of the helpless. Surdas says that when a man has exhausted all his resources and invokes the Name of God, His grace descends upon him.
When can one earn Guru krupa? When God decides to bless a person, he receives Guru's grace. One has to be blessed with Bhakti; and that is blessed only by God/Guru.
God's grace – we receive this by chanting and earnest prayers
While Krishna has taken care of all worldly necessities why should one seek another deity's help? Sri Krishna whom you worship will bless you with all round welfare.
While it is a general belief that God can be attained by a Guru’s grace, what is more significant is that only if there is God’s grace, can one attain a real Guru
That love, can sprout only by his grace. His grace descends when we chant the Mahamantra.
Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
