Giriraj Swami spoke from Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.7.17 on the appearance day of Lord Vamanadeva at ISKCON San Diego on August 31. “Lord Vamana covered all the lands of the universe with His first two steps and then asked Bali Maharaja where to place the third step. Bali Maharaja was very glad to receive the Lord’s remaining step upon his head, and thus Bali Maharaja, instead of losing everything he possessed, was blessed by the Lord’s becoming his constant companion and doorman. So, by giving everything to the cause of the Lord, one does not lose anything, but he gains everything that he could never otherwise expect.” (SB 2.7.17 purport)
