  1. Sambhoga and vipralambha

    Krsna can be felt, Krsna can be present more acutely in separation. That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s teaching: to love Krsna in separation. Just like Caitanya Mahaprabhu in separation: govinda virahena me. “Everything is vacant without Govinda, without Krsna.” So everything is vacant, but Krsna consciousness is there. Krsna consciousness is there, sir. So that is […]
  2. I must be joyful

    Krsna is joyful. I am part and parcel of Krsna; therefore I must be also joyful. That is natural. If my father is black, then I am also black. If my mother is black, I am also black. So our father, the supreme father Krsna, is joyful. Don’t you see Krsna’s attitude? Anywhere you see, […]

Draupadi was asking, “How you were married?” So they were narrating the incidence, how [s]he was married to Krsna. But the conclusion is there: every […]
  6. Krsna’s beauty and glories

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna, is the reservoir of all beauty. All beautiful things emanate from Him, and His personal form is so attractive that it steals the eyes away from all other objects, which then seem devoid of beauty in comparison to Him. When Lord Krsna was on the earth, He attracted the […]
