Русский перевод

So our eyes, we have got closing, eyelid closes. But Visnu's eyelids never closes. Therefore He is called animisa. Therefore gopis condemned Brahma, that "Why you have awarded us these nonsense eyelids? [laughter] It sometimes closes the eye; we cannot see Krsna." This is gopis' desire. They want to see Krsna always, without being disturbed by the eyelids. This is Krsna consciousness. The moment the eyes are being closed by the eyelids is intolerable by them. This is perfection of Krsna consciousness. They are condemning, "Oh, Brahma did not know how to create. He has... Why he has created this eyelid?" This is Krsna conscious. Because conditioned, we are, in this material world, our eyelids are made like that. It must close for a moment, again, again, again. Not for moment; for hours. [laughs] We want to close our eyes for hours. [laughter] That is our disease. But in the spiritual world, there is no closing of the eyes.
