Can I Meet Kṛṣṇa?

Once, a newly married girl came to Nandagāon. She had heard of Lord Kṛṣṇa’s glories, beauty, and attractive qualities. She had heard about Him from her neighbors, but she had never actually seen Him. She wanted an occasion to meet Kṛṣṇa and said, “Can I see Kṛṣṇa? Can I meet Kṛṣṇa?” Her mother-in-law was against and told her, “Don’t go to that snake. Kṛṣṇa is a poisonous snake. If He bites you, the fever resulting from the poison of that bite will never come down. Remain in the house. Don’t go to that black snake.”

Later, Kṛṣṇa reached the girl. He took His flute and touched her chin. He took her mind and heart and ran away—and she was left standing like a statue.

“Go and take water from the well.” Her mother-in-law gave her a bucket, a rope, two pitchers on her head, a pitcher in one hand, and a baby boy in the other arm. She arrived at the well that was somewhat far from her house, as she was accustomed to go daily, and she began to make a knot around the neck of the baby instead of the pitcher. You will have to be like this—and then Kṛṣṇa will allow you to see Him and meet with Him. You cannot give your heart at present, so pray to Him that He will take it.

The Saintly Son – 16 June 1996

Become Krsna conscious as of now. You will not be able to take one paisa of the money you are earning when you leave your body. Use your money in doing good. Don’t use it for bad things. Your money should help you to advance in your devotion to Krsna. If a little of our energy is spent in Krsna’s seva, then along with our own lives, even the lives of our children and dynasty will be made auspicious. Hence, understanding this, everyone must engage in Bhagavan’s bhajan from childhood. It is not difficult to do Bhagavan’s bhajan. You can chant Bhagavan’s name during the morning, afternoon, evening, or during the night. You can also chant His name while walking, sneezing, or even while falling down. If a person slips and falls down, then he can chant, “Rama Rama.” Upon seeing stool, he also chants, “Rama Rama,” in disgust. He chants Rama Rama when he is going to sleep. He chants Rama Rama when he wakes up. You should also chant, “Rama Rama,” or “Krsna Krsna.” No money is spent in chanting Bhagavan’s names. But the chanting of Bhagavan’s names is so powerful that it will change your life. Happiness and peace will come to this world. Happiness and peace will not be obtained by your present activities. So, we should do Bhagavan’s bhajan from our childhood.

Seven Kinds of Women in the Bhagavatam – 26 June 1997 France

What more? Then there is Satyabhama and Rukmini, the queens of Dvaraka. They are really so beautiful, resembling the gopis, but their love and affection is aisvarya-misra (mixed with the mood of opulence). Aisvarya means full of opulence. They always serve Krsna in all ways but with opulence, folding their hands and with some fear. Krsna is happy with this prema, but He will not be attracted or controlled. This prema is called samanjasa because it is divided into so many fractions. It is not full prema. How is it divided? They used to love Krsna, only Krsna, but after that ten sons came and their prema was divided into eleven. One part for Krsna and the other parts for each, each person. So, Krsna only got one tenth. There was one daughter also, so it was divided into twelve...

Verse 23: Mixture of Bhāvas

In some devotees there is a mixture of the three rasas of dāsya, sakhya and vātsalya. In those devotees one of these rasas will be dominant and the others will be subordinate. The sakhya-rasa of Śrī Baladeva is mixed with vātsalya and dāsya. The vātsalya-rasa of Mukharā and other elderly gopīs is mixed with sakhya. The vātsalya-rasa of Yudhiṣṭhira is mixed with dāsya and sakhya...

O Ocean of Kindness

“O Capala Kṛṣṇa, You are very restless. You are an ocean of kindness. Your mercy is great. Once received, Your kindness will never leave or dwindle. Your kindness is unlimited and infinite. O Nātha! You are not only Gopinātha or Vrajanātha, You are Jagannātha—the Nātha of everyone in the universe, the beloved of all, not only of the gopīs and Vrajavāsīs. If anyone is distant from Vraja-maṇḍala and the gopīs or Vrajavāsīs, will you not help them? I know you help everyone, therefore you are everyone’s Nātha. O Nayanābhirāma, my eyes collect many things that are not helpful for myself or for anyone. Now I wish to collect Your svarūpa only. Otherwise, my eyes will simply look here and there, wondering who is my enemy and who is my friend. If someone is against me, I try to burn them with my eyes. But You are Nayanābhirāma, You can cool my eyes. Vision of You will be the satisfaction of my eyes. When will You permanently manifest before my eyes, so that I can always see You?..."
