I am full of material conditioning namely lust, greed, pride, envy and ego. Am I worthy to take shelter of Krishna?

Rasika Acharyas give a very interesting answer to this.

If one is free of illness, is he required to go to hospital? Nope, Isn't it?

Hospital is meant to cure people of illness.

Likewise, we give our clothes to the dhobi (washerman) only when it becomes dirty.

Similarly, owing to our conditioning of birth after birth since many lifetimes, our cit (consciousness) has become impure and maligned with greed, anger, lust, envy, pride and false ego.

Hence, if we give and surrender ourselves completely to Krishna and Guru Tattva, it now becomes their prerogative to cleanse our conditioning.

Children don't worry about the dirt on their body. Its rather their mother who worries for it. The child, even while having dirt on his body, if he runs to his mother, his mother will only see her little son and not the dirt.

Similarly, Krishna doesn't see our conditioning. For Him, the pradhanta (importance) is that the devotee is surrendered and is fully dependent on Him (Bhagavad Gita 18.66).

Krishna makes all vidhi ka vidhan (plans) to make the devotee get closer to Him. He Himself will make all arrangement for His surrendered devotee. 

Hence, a sincere seeker doesn't need to think anything else but that "Whatever or however, I belong to my Krishna." With this mood, one should approach this path of spirituality enthusiastically. It is for the fearless.
