Krsna consciousness: act under the direction of Krsna (ecstasy later)

    Posted on December 18, 2015

Dr. Singh: When you become Krsna conscious, is it not a state of ecstasy?

Prabhupada: Why ecstasy? That is a misconception. It is a material... That spiritual ecstasy is very, very above all these things. First Krsna consciousness is the example of Arjuna. Arjuna decided not to fight. But after understanding Bhagavad-gita, when he became Krsna conscious, he fought. This is Krsna consciousness: to act under the direction of Krsna.
