God cannot help those who deny the mercy

    Posted on January 1, 2014

Русский перевод

Prabhupada: If you want to remain unhappy by your whims, then God cannot help you. But you have got the independence.

Hrdayananda: So Prabhupada, if some people say, "Well, I have no free will," that means that they are actually lazy.

Prabhupada: Yes. You have got free will, but must utilize it properly. That is free will. Free will means to utilize it properly.

Svarupa Damodara: Sometimes Krsna interferes in the free will?

Prabhupada: Yes. That is Krsna's special favor. Because by your free will you are going to hell. If Krsna interferes, that is Krsna's special favor. Just like a child is going to touch fire by free will, and father, "Eh, don't do it." That is his special favor.

Svarupa Damodara: But it's called causeless mercy.

Prabhupada: Causeless mercy. His mercy is already there, but we are denying the mercy. That is the defect of material existence.
