There are many religions in the world, but all give us a piece of the puzzle. But the Bhagavad Gita gives us the complete picture.
Some have worshipped the all-pervading white light – that is the aura of Krsna, a golden effulgence. That is the Supreme Brahman on which everything rests, but Krsna Himself is the origin.
Eternal shelter, we will find only when we are in our natural position, and the nature of the living being is to serve Krsna. Everyone has to serve, but there is no greater object than serving Krsna. Therefore we understand why Krsna Consciousness is the topmost religion…
As you begin to know Krsna, you get to know yourself. In the relationship with Krsna you will meet yourself. Everyone develops an identity in a relationship. So one may start a relationship with some thing or with some person – we may fall in love – starry-eyed, but for how long? Eternally? Maybe, but let’s see how long eternity will last!
Anyway, relationships change, but one relationship is always there – our relationship with Krsna. Now it may be in the background, but in Krsna Consciousness we start remembering this relationship, and then it is satisfying it feels like homecoming
