And now I’m hearing so many complaints from the mouths of devotees. Oh, there are so many problems: “My wife has left me. Now my children are like orphans. My husband has left me. What should I do? Can you help?”
So many problems—so many problems. They try to do this, do this and that, but everything fails because the root of all these problems is that you are not surrendered. You have no relation with Kṛṣṇa and you have no trust in Kṛṣṇa, no belief in Kṛṣṇa and His name. That is why all problems are coming.
Who brought all these problems? Myself—yourself only. You made all problems. He has created the whole world and He is supporting and nourishing everything. Then why He cannot support you and nourish you? It is you who are making all problems. You are the root cause of all problems. Kṛṣṇa wants to take you out of problems, but you are making so many. Only one problem is the root of all. What? You have forgotten Kṛṣṇa—you are neglecting Kṛṣṇa.
