1. Preference should be to Krsna, not Om

    Om is formless but Krsna has got beautiful form, enjoying. And we are addicted to beautiful form. Why something which is not beautiful? Krsna says in the Bhagavad-gita, “I am omkara.” So in one sense omkara and Krsna the same. But I can see Krsna very beautiful and so many things, but I do not see in omkara that thing. Therefore my preference should be to Krsna.
