IF YOU ARE EARNEST

A MAN may not know the right path, but if he has bhakti and the desire to know God, then he attains Hint through the force of sheer bhakti.

Once, a sincere devotee set out on a pilgrimage to the temple of Jagannath in Puri. He did not know the way; he went west instead of south. He, no doubt, strayed from the right path, but always eagerly asked people the way, and they gave him the right directions, saying, This is not the path; follow that one.' At last the devotee was able to get to Puri and worship the Deity.

So you see, even if you are ignorant, some one will tell you the way if you are earnest. (96)
