Bhakti means voluntary cooperation with Krsna

    Posted on August 28, 2015



Русский перевод

We are persons, and Krishna is a Person, and our relationship with Krishna He leaves open as a voluntary agreement always, and that voluntary attitude -- Yes, Krishna, I shall gladly co-operate whatever you say -- that ready willingness to obey is only possible if there is love. Forcing will not make me agree. But if there is love, oh, I shall gladly do it. That is bhakti, that is Krishna Consciousness.

Srila Prabhupada; letter to Rupa Vilasa  --  Hyderabad 18 November, 1972
