25 Dec Even a drop is too much
I’m performing puja at a small table. It’s a bit narrow where I’m sitting, so I should roll my legs a little beneath the table. When I’m done, I have to exit carefully to avoid accidently kicking the table. Unfortunately I moved the table. Radhika’s cadar fell immediately, so I had to go back and gently reattach it. It’s the same way with the holy name. If one looses a drop of awareness he may crack everything around. Like an elephant in a small shop who accidently knocked something over while moving among the shelves, causing it to fall and break. Then he turn around to see what a mess he had made and while turning he knocks the shelves behind.
