(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 24 April 2014, Radhadesh, Belgium, Caitanya Caritamrta Lecture) Who can say that they understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead? Even Lord Brahma was praying for 60 000 … more
Such a vaisnava, may not have the top most love of God, but such a vaisnava says, “ For me in my life – Krsna first”. And such a vaisnava has great faith, and therefore, he can give faith. He can give it to people with no faith.
“How do you know that Krsna is God? I mean what’s the proof ?…Did you see him? And how do you know that even when you saw him, that you didn’t need some medical attention?”(laughter)
Like that…but all such questions – they melt like the snow melts in the sun. They melt in front of a devotee with firm faith. In the beginning all kinds of arguments:
“But how is it possible? But how can we be sure? What is your proof? No no…I will not accept your Krsna as God. How can I accept him? What is your proof?”
“Bhagavad Gita is my proof”.
“I’m not accepting your Bhagavad Gita! Why should I accept your Bhagavad Gita?”
“You should accept the Bhagavad Gita, because the Bhagavad Gita is very nice; Because the Bhagavad Gita can answer all your questions. The Bhagavad Gita you should accept, because it can free you from all the anxieties that you’ve had…for so many years; Because the Bhagavad Gita immediately makes you free from all anxieties; Because sometimes the Gita is called the Gita Upanisad. It is said that the first thing that this Gita Upanisad is teaching you, is that you are not the body. The second thing it is teaching you is that you are actually the spirit – Brahman. And then it’s teaching(Sanskrit) …the goal is to serve Krsna with love and devotion. And when you try that then you will find that Krsna is Bhagavan. Bhagavan the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You will find that God is not just an all pervading energy”.
