Where is Love, There is Doubt

The truth is that, wherever there is deep love, there is doubt. This is not the fault of a person with love; this is natural. For example, when a child goes to school and is only a little bit late to return, his parents think, “There must have been an accident! Perhaps he was kidnapped!” They doubt in this way. But why? Why do they automatically think something bad has happened? Why do they not think positively?


“Parakīya-bhāva is the essence of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, and this esoteric conception is what Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu came to disseminate. Śrīmatī Rādhikā did not live in the house of Nanda Baba as a bride because She is Kṛṣṇa’s paramour. When Kṛṣṇa left Vraja, Rādhārānī stayed with Her sakhīs at Uddhava-kyārī, lamenting in separation from Kṛṣṇa, while the sakhās lamented in Maṭavana. Neither group returned to their homes or associated with each other."

On the other side, Kṛṣṇa was in Dvārakā, suffering from the agony of separation from Rādhārāṇī. In the meantime, Nārada Ṛṣi came to Dvārakā. He had just been to Hastināpura, for he was searching for the best and most glorious city. The Pāṇḍavas advised him to go see the glory of Dvārakā, so he proceeded there. Arriving in Dvārakā, Nārada Ṛṣi was received by Kṛṣṇa and His queens. Nārada Ṛṣi glorified the splendor and beauty of Kṛṣṇa’s queens, especially Rukmiṇī, Satyabhāmā, and Jāmbavatī. But they replied, “We are not fortunate. We have never pleased Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa is never happy with us. Somehow, by our good fortune, we are nearby Kṛṣṇa, but Kṛṣṇa is not nearby us. He hardly shows any attention to us. He barely speaks to us or eats our cooking. The whole day and night He acts indifferent to everything. At night, when He comes to sleep in His bed, He only weeps and weeps and calls out, ‘He Lalite, Viśākhe, Rādhe!’ He is agitated for many hours before He finally falls senseless. And even in His dreams, we can hear Him speaking the names of the gopīs. In the morning, His pillow and sheet are all wet with His tears. We cannot pacify or satisfy Him by any means. He only calls out, ‘Rādhe, Rādhe, Rādhe, Rādhe,’ nothing more. Sometimes, in the middle of His sleep, He will sit bolt upright and call out to His friends, the cowherd boys, and to His parents, Nanda and Yaśodā, and will lament, saying, ‘Why did I ever leave you! I was such a fool! How can I ever return?’ ”
