Could you comment on this statement and explain how it is to be understood? Srila Prabhupada mentions material senses and then speaks about transcendental senses. Why does he not continue to say that devotees engage their material senses in the service of the Transcendence?

How Did Sukadeva Become an Impersonalist Even He Knew That Krishna is Supreme?

August 2, 2012 |

Question: How was it possible that Sukadeva Goswami became an impersonalist (Brahmavadi) but then became attracted to Krishna’s personalistic activities? I ask this because I have heard from senior devotees that Suka is parrot of Radharani and that in his form as a parrot, he heard Bhagavatam from Lord Siva while he was explaining it… Expand>

Question:

How was it possible that Sukadeva Goswami became an impersonalist (Brahmavadi) but then became attracted to Krishna’s personalistic activities?

I ask this because I have heard from senior devotees that Suka is parrot of Radharani and that in his form as a parrot, he heard Bhagavatam from Lord Siva while he was explaining it to Mother Parvathi.

Also Sukadeva Goswami remained in the womb of his mother (Bitika) for around 16 years as he refused to come out. But after Krishna assured him that he will not be attracted by His Maya energy, then he came out. This means that Suka knows Krishna is supreme. Then how did he become an impersonalist.

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”?
