I was doing my evening kirtan/puja the other day and I saw the burning incense stick.
And in a flash I saw myself in it.
The incense stand is ISKCON, rising up and shining bright in a dull world.
The incense stick is my Guru Maharaj, holding me, without him I am nothing.
The incense on the stick is myself. brown in color, neither good nor bad, a nobody, was living an animal’s life.
Ash signifies that under the protection of Guru and with the association of devotees I am turning white, satvik.
The small black ring ring signify my visible anarthas.
The little red burning ring is the knowledge I am gaining.
And the black burnt part hanging from within the incense stick is my heart, still full of invisible anarthas.
Only by serving servant’s of servant of Sri Guru and Gauranga I hope to overcome every obstacle and develop unalloyed love for Krishna.
All Glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga.
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada
