Here in Radhe Kunj Prabhuji has told us to continue all our programs without concern. There is a verse in Srimad Bhagavatam, that says, “Fear personified runs in fear from that person who is chanting the holy names of the Lord.”

Srila Gurudeva would say, that fear arises from the misidentification with the self. Fear comes from secondary consciousness, meaning not applying your consciousness in its primary direction of the true nature of the self. Instead, you’re thinking, that ‘I am this body’ and what is in relation to this body, ‘that is mine’. Therefore if that comes in any sense of harm, then we would be very afraid. There are four tendencies of living entities: eating, mating, sleeping and fearing. But when we get out of maya – illusion, then we no longer fear. Krsna says how to get out of maya, how to get out of this secondary consciousness of identification with the material body: by the development of pure bhakti-yoga, pure devotional sentiment and activities. When you do that completely in alignment with the heart or the moods and desires of the liberated soul, someone who is transcendental, who saw the Lord himself – a real genuine Guru, then, by becoming Gurudevatatma, one at heart with that genuine Sri Guru, then you cross all kinds of fear, you cross over material existence itself.

So this is our method to escape the dangers of the coronavirus.

In Preparation for Love’s Feast – Govinda-lilamrta

hen the gopīs arrive in Nandagrāma, Yaśodā Mātā is waiting there for them. Seeing Śrīmatī Rādhārānī, she embraces Her, and smells Her hair. She kisses Her face and says, "You must be very tired, having come from so far. We have some refreshments. Please come to the kitchen and look over all the preparations to be made. Please start the cooking." Hearing Yaśodā Mātā's affectionate speech, Śrīmatī Rādhārānī is very happy. In the autumn season, the weather is cool, and the water is clear, likewise, anyone who comes near Yaśodā Mātā becomes very peaceful and cool by her vātsalya-sneha, motherly affection. With Yaśodā Mātā’s sweet speech, the gopīs become full of humility. The affection of vātsalya-sneha is so powerful that it even attracts the Supreme Lord. It washes away all His moods of opulence, and makes Him a small boy, Gopāla. He is the Supreme Lord, Parabrahma, but He forgets that. He forgets that He is in Vaikuṇṭha and that He is the Supreme Personality, the controller of countless universes—now He is a small boy Gopāla. In this way also, the power of svarūpa-śakti is so great, She is the power of the Supremely Powerful Parabrahma, but still, when Śrīmatī Rādhārānī comes before Yaśodā Mātā, the power of Yaśodā Mātā’s motherly affection makes the Supreme Potency svarūpa-śakti, Śrīmatī Rādhārānī and Her divine majesty appear as a small child. Yaśodā Mātā takes Her in her lap and smells Her hair. How amazing is this? The guru-varga have this power, therefore, great personalities of this world, like great politicians, philosophers, renowned scientists and doctors, forget their high position and become like children, very small and humble before the guru-varga. This is the great personality present with those who have this vātsalya-sneha, parental affection. That affection has so much power—it controls not only Śrīmatī Rādhārānī but all Her sakhīs. In other places they are very powerful, but coming to Yaśodā Mātā and touching her feet, she takes them in her lap and smells their hair, and all their strength is hidden, and they are like small innocent girls in the care of their mother. Yaśodā Mātā says, "You have come from different places, like Ciksaulī, Ūṅcāgaon, Kāmaī and Karehlā. Please make the famous preparations from your own area for Kṛṣṇa. Kīsori Rādhā is very famous in Vraja-maṇḍala, She knows all processes to cook the best of dishes. Everyone should follow Her guidance. Don't do anything independently. Everything will be the sweetest of the sweet if you follow Rādhā." The sakhīs all desire to follow the advice of Yaśodā Mātā.
