1. Govardhana-lila and rasa-lila

    Krsna at the age of seven years old, He lifted Govardhana Hill. So if we try to imitate, “Oh, Krsna lifted the Govardhana Hill. Let me also try.” That is not following. You cannot do that. (chuckling) You see? Because sometimes the foolish rascals they say, “Oh, Krsna performed rasa-lila. Let me also perform rasa-lila.” Therefore I forbid that don’t discuss Krsna’s rasa-lila with the ordinary persons. They cannot understand. They’ll simply think that “Oh, it is very nice to dance with girls, boys and girls dancing.”
