Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur said;
“The change must be there, and it’s not a partial change. It is a complete revolution. It is a 360-degree. It is a complete change”
How is it possible? The full range-so it may not be all be in one jump. But it does look as if Krishna Consciousness goes in jumps- like we jump into initiation: We jump into a new temple project. And it’s like we jump and then we land- and you see how you land: And where you land: And where am I now? We have just jumped into a new reality. So spiritual life is like that. Again and again we jump, and there we are. This is adventurous. At first a little bit scary – just like any adventure. But then after a little while we get the taste for it – this transcendental adventure.
