Devotion

You open up any page of Gita, read any verse, and you will feel indescribable feelings. Today morning, I just turned one page, it was chapter nine, verse 30. Just have a look at it.

api cet su-duracaro
bhajate mam ananya-bhak
sadhur eva sa mantavyah
samyag vyavasito hi sah

Even if one commits the most abominable actions, if he is engaged in devotional service, he is to be considered saintly because he is properly situated.

Lord Krishna gives such a relief to persons who are the most fallen. He consoles that it is never too late. No matter how much fallen you are, how much abominable deeds you have committed, if you start devotion in a single minded fashion, i.e. ananya bhava, then you will be considered as a sadhu, a saintly person. Realize very clearly, that it is a statement spoken by none other than the Bhagvan Himself.
