1. Certainly we’ll be able to see Radha and Krsna in this life

    Devotee (2): …follow Krsna consciousness very strictly and very seriously like, say, for the rest of our lives, is there a chance that we’ll be able to see Radha and Krsna in this life?

    Prabhupada: Certainly. You read Bhagavad-gita?

    Devotee (2): Yes.

    Prabhupada: So there is stated, “If you simply try to understand Krsna, then you go back to home.” Janma karma ca me divyam [Bg 4.9]. That is stated. If you simply understand how Krsna takes birth, how He goes away, why does He come, what is His mission, these things if you can understand, then you are a fit candidate to go back to home. So that is explained everything in the Bhagavad-gita. You try to understand. Then you are guaranteed. Where is the difficulty? And if you think, “Krsna is an ordinary man like us,” then finish. They do not understand Krsna. [japa] If you simply accept this word faithfully, vasudevah sarvam iti [Bg 7.19], “Everything is Krsna,” then knowledge is perfect.
