Acaryas Quotes Gurudeva said today The Battle of Selfless Love

The Battle of Selfless Love

Rādhājī wears blue clothes because Kṛṣṇa’s complexion is also like that. Kṛṣṇa is also not less. He wears a Pītāmbara because the Pītāmbara resembles the golden complexion of Śrīmatī Rādhikā. Who is Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura? He is the manifestation of gaura-śakti Gadādhara Paṇdita. He has sung, “Being the maidservant of Śrīmatī Rādhikā, I will only strive for Her happiness. I will not strive for anything else.” Kṛṣṇa feels happy when Śrīmatī Rādhikā is happy and satisfied by someone’s service. If Rādhārānī is ecstatic, then Kṛṣṇa feels that He is a million times more ecstatic. By making Kṛṣṇa happy, Rādhārānī becomes so much happier and ecstatic. In this battle of selfless love, no one wants to be the loser.

Verse 27: Rasābhāsa

There are several circumstances in which the combination of two incompatible rasas does not generate rasābhāsa: when an incompatible rasa is remembered (and thus not presently experienced); when a speaker describes an incompatible rasa as detrimental and by so doing praises the excellence of a particular rasa; when the āśraya or viṣaya of the incompatible gauṇa-rasa is different from that of the mukhya-rasa...
