No Taste from Bhakti. What to Do?

Question: No Taste from Bhakti. What to Do?

When I was a new devotee, Lord Krishna gave me so much taste and thus I was inspired from within to surrender more and more and thus I got initiated. But recently, I don't much taste at all. I do all my service with an attitude of duty only. But that is not the worst part. The worst part is that I feel no taste in chanting. Please tell me what I can do.

Answer: Continue Faithfully. Unlimited Taste Will Come.

You are being tested now to see if you are really doing devotional service out of duty or if you are still holding on to the desire to be the enjoyer. Taste or no taste, you must faithfully continue serving and chanting. If you will persevere through this period of spiritual drought, you will gradually enter into a wondrous spiritual paradise of unlimited eternal bliss and knowledge and become a spotlessly pure devotee of the Lord. Chanting and serving now, even when there is no taste, will bring you the greatest spiritual rewards. So whatever you do, don't give up. Try even harder now. This it what you must do.
