"So if you take to these principles of devotional service you gradually understand what is Krishna, and Krishna will provide everything. Yoga-ksemam vahamy aham [Bg. 9.22], Krishna says. Tesam satatam yuktanam. If you are actually engaged in the service of Krishna, all your necessities will be supplied by Krishna. How it will be supplied? Krishna says, aham vahami. 'I personally carry all the necessities to the house of the devotee. I personally carry.' There is a big history how He personally carries. But He hasn't got to do personally. Parasya saktir vividhaiva sruyate [Cc. Madhya 13.65, Purport]. His energy is so, I mean to say, acute, that Krishna, if He wants to supply you... It does not appear that Krishna has personally come, but you will understand that supply is so, I mean to say, surprisingly supplied that you will understand how Krishna supplied. You'll be surprised. When you are in need of something... In London it was so happened. When we established the Bury Place Deity, on the three days before, the Deity which I ordered from India, it did not arrive. Three days before. And I was so much full of anxiety, that 'Where to get...? We are arranging, we are issuing invitation card, and there is no Deity. Where is the installation?' But you'll be surprised to know that some Indian gentleman came just on the three days before: 'Sir, we have got a Deity. You can take.' So Mukunda and myself went, immediately brought the Deity. And nobody knew this afterwards, but we got surprisingly."
