(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 05 April 2015, Durban, South Africa, Ratha Yatra Lecture: The secret of spiritual advancement) If we do not have a connection with Srimad Bhagavatam, then spiritual life … more
Lord Chaitanya’s mercy is extra ordinary .
That He gives at to anyone and everyone, topmost to the most fallen.
Therefore for us this is the only way, and nothing will work unless we will take shelter of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
Certainly Krsna is extremely kind.
Because,just see how Krsna when He comes to this Earth appears in this World and brings His whole transcendental abode and that is another aspect of the amazing mercy of Krsna.
Because we sometimes also feel little bit compassionate and we think: We should give the fallen conditioned souls some mercy.
We think, lets give them some mercy.
But look at Krsna,Krsna was seeing all this fallen conditioned souls and Krsna was also thinking:”Yes,let Me give them some mercy”.
And then He must have thought:”Why give them some mercy? I will give them all the mercy!”
And instead of just give them some mercy Krsna arrange that entire Spiritual world was present in Material world.
That is Krsna.
He doesn’t give some mercy! He gives all the mercy.
And by some arrangement He put the entire Spiritual world, which is much bigger then all the Universe together, in 84 square miles of land.
And how He did that is inconceivable.
But He did.
And there was the Spiritual world Sri Vrindavan Dham.
And it is very sweet.
There is river Yamuna.
There is Giri Govardhan.
And there one can just simply take off the shoes and roum a round, and there one can in eny place just sense that…
” Where is Krsna?
He must have bean here just a few minutes a go.
Where did He go?”
And in this way in Vrindavan one can so much experience the presence of Krsna, and if one serves Krsna in Vrindavan then even more is Krsna revealing himself.
And He reciprocates very quickly and very strongly and in that transcendental atmosphere of Vrindavan one is naturally remembering Krsna, and one‘s naturally Bhakti is awakening.
And that’s we can glorify Vrindavan.
And that’s we can always remember Vrindavan.
