When the Asuras and Devas (Demons and Gods) churned the Ocean of Milk (Ksheera Sagara), first came poison. They did not give up the churning till they got the Amrit (nectar of immortality). We must regard our heart as the Ocean of Milk and the intellect as the Mandhara mountain. Using our yearnings as the churning ropes, we must carry on the churning by reciting the Lord’s name. We must not mind if the first thing to come out is poison. We must go on churning till we get the nectar of divine bliss. When we study the Bhagavad Gita, we will note that it begins with Arjuna Vishaadha Yoga, the (the despondency of Arjuna). But ultimately, Arjuna experiences the Vishvaruupa, the Cosmic Form of the Lord.
