1. Bhagavad-gita: don’t think Arjuna was fortunate, we are not

    The name Krsna, and Krsna person, there is no difference. There is no difference. You don’t think that “Arjuna was fortunate to receive instruction of Krsna directly, but we are unfortunate. We are not in the presence of Krsna.” No, no, no, no. That is a, our mistake. Krsna is present by the sound representation. Because God is Absolute, therefore there is no difference.
