Surrendering to Krishna means that Krishna has given many directions. Surrendering to Krishna doesn’t just mean: thinking of Krishna, remembering Krishna…. Krishna…. Krishna. Seeing someone with a flute and a peacock feather – and you think – Krishna. No it means Krishna in total – Krishna with the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna with the instructions, Krishna who tells you what to do and what not to do – that’s the problem with Krishna – He’s not only sweet and playing the flute, but He tells you what to do and what not to do. That’s why people rather have an impersonal God, which would be much easier because he doesn’t give any instructions – but Krishna He tells you;

“Do this and don’t do that. You can offer this to me, but you cannot offer that to me!”

(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Radhadesh, January 2011)
