Vedas Mention Purusha As the Source

Question:

If Krishna is the source of all incarnations why include him in the list of incarnations in the first place? And why does Bhagavata say that in the “beginning” Purusha form was there? In fact Vedas use the word “Purusha” to signify the Godhead. In the Purusha Sookta (the Creation Hymn) it is said that the Purusha creates this world. We come to know that he is Vishnu since it is mentioned that Laskhmi is his consort (hreeshcha te lakshmeeshcha patnyau). Why don’t Vedas say Krishna is the root, and Radha is his consort? Why “Purusha” and his consort is “Lakshmi”?

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. 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… Expand>

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?
