Reality of the Image of the Third Eye

Question:

Yogananda talks about the spiritual eye – a golden disk surrounding a blue field and in the centre a 5 pointed silver/white star, and the devotee has to penetrate this like moving through a tunnel to the star and into it to get samadhi.

My question is simple. Does this image of the third eye have a reality? Krishna is also blue and gold. Say this spiritual eye is the impersonal feature of krishna – is it nevertheless real?

I am not interested in discussing the legitimacy of Yogananda. I would just like to know what you think of this idea of the spiritual eye. Also, the tunnel with the light at the end is part of the Near Death Experience, or NDE.

No Desire to Serve the Lord in Santa Rati

July 7, 2012 |

Question: In the purport to CC Madhya 8.294, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura is quoted poiting out that the Yamuna, the kadamba trees, cows, Krishna's flute and Krishna's sticks belong to the santa-rasa.

Question:

In the purport to CC Madhya 8.294, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura is quoted poiting out that the Yamuna, the kadamba trees, cows, Krishna's flute and Krishna's sticks belong to the santa-rasa. Furthermore, in CC Madhya, 19.185 it's said that santa-rati is the neutral stage between the conception of impersonalism and personalism… not much willing to render service to the Lord.

It's difficult to understand how a living entity without the desire to render loving service can be in Goloka Vrndavana. And if I remember cows in Brahma-vimohana-lila, they seemed to have motherly affection toward Krishna (expanded as their calves). How to understand that the river Yamuna and the kalpa-vrksa trees also don't have much desire to serve?
