ऋणमेतत्प्रवृद्धं मे हृदयान्नापसर्पति।

यद् गोविन्देति चुक्रोश कृष्णा मां दूरवासिनम्॥ (महाभारत)

 

It is said that Lord Krishna became a debtor, unable to discharge his debt to Draupadi who called His name and wept while being disgraced in public by Duryodhana and with Dussasana trying to disrobe her. Krishna used to soliloquise: "Draupadi had to call me as Govinda loudly as I was then living a good distance away at Dvaraka. She has thus put me in a heavy debt which is growing day by day and I am unable to forget it.''

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.

 

Chaitanya Mahăprabhu, a great scholar that he was, threw away everything and took to incessant chanting of 'eka năma'. Let the Name of the Lord play on your tongue always because only then will it come to you at the moment of crisis-just as Draupadi called out to Krishna

 

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.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
