The Crooked Way – Govinda-lilarmta

The message and messenger of the eternal world are worthy of great respect. How can this message come without a messenger? It is not possible. If anyone has taste for this message, he will collect spiritual activities from the spiritual world. These pastimes will be tasted by him, and distributed to others as well. They know that this is helpful for many people and other things are not helpful. The guru-varga bring this nectar from the eternal world, and distribute it for us. The distributors receive double or triple benefit. Therefore, if anyone hears vraja-līlā, and discusses it, then he receives the blessings of God, and all the conditioned souls get benefit, tasting this and crossing māyā. They also then give thanks to that person who distributed to them. Therefore, we should try to follow this program again and again. It is helpful without any conditions. If there is a condition, one will run away and jump in māyā. Where there is no condition, everything will be right and good, but if a little condition comes, or some business mentality, everything will be lost. You will not get double or triple benefit, you will lose, you will be credited. Then you will have increased your anarthas, but received no paramārtha.

Colorful Exchanges – Govinda-lilamrta

Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī explains here how Kṛṣṇa went to the cowshed. The dynasty of Surabhi in heaven gives pure nectarful milk to all the demigods. When Kṛṣṇa came in this world, all the heavenly cows came to Vraja. Cows have place of all the demigods in their bodies. Cows give gold and minerals to the living entities through their milk to help all. When Kṛṣṇa goes to the cowshed, the demigods watch from the sky as Kṛṣṇa respects and serves the cows. The cows come on all four sides as if to arrest Kṛṣṇa. They think, “May Kṛṣṇa look at me, may He drink my milk.” Kṛṣṇa knows the names of all the cows. He calls them all and milks them one by one. At the time of milking, Kṛṣṇa’s sakhās and the cowherd men brought big pots and them carried the pots in a line to Nanda-bhavana where the milk is separated. The milk has different aromas and so forth. Some is very thick and some cow’s milk smells like jasmine, rose and other flowers. There are different varieties of taste and smell in milk according to the cows. Yaśodā Mātā understands which milk has come from which group of cows and separates it all when it comes to Nanda-bhavana. With some milk she makes sweets, with some she makes paneer and with some she makes sweet rice. She arranges everything properly.

HOW TO RESIDE IN VRAJA?

If we desire prema-sevā, divine loving service, we will make a firm vow to Śrīmatī Rādhikā and Her prominent sakhīs like Lalita-devi, Viśākhā, Rūpa Mañjarī, and so forth. We will pray, “I will not take shelter of any other. I only seek and wait for Your blessings and mercy. I will only associate with those who similarly seek Your shelter and who have vraja-niṣṭha. I will sternly avoid any other association.”

WHAT SHOULD BE MEDITATING ON WHEN CHANTING?

At the time of chanting, we hold each tulasī bead in our mālā, like catching the feet of the...

The gopis were not worried that Krsna may be harmed by Kamsa. That is not why they were distressed. They knew that Krsna’s heart was very soft and that as soon as Vasudeva and Devaki saw Krsna they would offer their affection and prayers to Him and not allow Him to ever return. They knew this would come to pass.
