THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY OF THEM FALLING DOWN

‘Tad-vicesta’ means the gopis sang of Krsna’s activities which were in relation to them: how He met with them, how He fed them tambula, how He tied bells on their ankles, how He strung garlands of flowers for them, and how when they became fatigued He wiped the dust from their faces and bodies and composed a bed of flowers f or them to rest on.

Then they became tad-atmika, both internally and externally they began glorifying Him, and they forgot their homes and even their very own selves. What to speak of returning to their homes, remembrance of the home itself didn’t even arise in their minds. Glorifying Krsna more and more in their separation, they completely forgot all worldly concerns.

Nirguna-yogis don’t meditate on anything; their minds become attached to the void. They don’t meditate on the atma, on Paramatma, or on any material object either. They are nirasraya, without shelter, and are therefore prone to falling down; but devotees, who follow in the footsteps of the gopis and constantly meditate on Krsna’s attributes are asraya, sheltered, and there is no possibility of them falling down.

VAISNAVAS NEVER ACCEPT THIS BLAMING AND FAULT FINDING

If a person brings a pile of fresh stool to another person and requests him to accept it then he will be entirely uninterested and disgusted. But if that stool was brought to pigs and piglets then they would be very happy. Now think about this. Are we pigs and piglets? Are we dogs and hogs? Or are we humans, men, and women? Are you a gentleman? If you are a gentleman, then why do you accept any other person’s faults or the complaints of a faultfinder? This is offered to you on a plate. Oh, how sweet and tasteful! Now, when this is offered to me, I quickly take it and immediately distribute it to others. I will be an agent of this.

Entering the Lord’s Eternal Pastimes through Samādhi-yoga

Bilvamaṅgala completely rejected his material body. He even gave up his attachment to his subtle body and mind, and then entered into samādhi, into the eternal world, where he started searching only for Śrī Kṛṣṇa. This type of sādhana is very serious. Not everybody can act like this, but for one who can, entering into samādhi is very easy. He will be able to cross over māyā, enter into the eternal...
