Inspirations from Prahlad and Dhruv

The stories of Prahlad and Dhruv inspires me the most.

 

Nothing could deter Prahlad's devotion to Vishnu. He was always fearless and peaceful chanting the Holy Names of Vishnu and glorifying the Lord. Prahlad was fixed in Transcendental Knowledge and had no ill feelings towards Hirankashipu who put Prahlad into danger numerous times. Such is the greatness of Lord's devotee who is always glorifying the Lord and uplifting others.

 

 Dhruv story is also inspiring. Dhruv wanted a kingdom greater than his father's and grandfather 's because he was hurt by his stepmother who insulted him. He was a brave Kshatriya who impressed the Lord. When he saw the Lord face to face then Dhruv realised that he was asking for a few broken pieces of glass while the Lord was a shinning diamond in front of him. Material list of things cannot compare with the spiritual bliss in being with the Lord and serving Him.

Both stories inspire me to be focused and determined in Krishna Consciousness and devotional service.

This could be a great topic "Bhagavatam and Fearlessness," as you said "He was always fearless and peaceful chanting the Holy Names of Vishnu. Prahlad was fixed in Transcendental Knowledge and had no ill feelings towards Hirankashipu." This could be a beautiful story, how the devotees of Krishna have strength and courage to swallow all the pains in the world, and give nothing more than pure love, "greatness of Lord's devotee who is always glorifying the Lord and uplifting others."

Or you can also explore the Topic of Bhagavatam and Service, how no money or gold can pay the price of true service "he was asking for a few broken pieces of glass while the Lord was a shinning diamond in front of him. Material list of things cannot compare with the spiritual bliss in being with the Lord and serving Him."

Thank you for sharing your Inspiration story, this is a very important subject in the Bhagavatam.
