(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 2005)

So in this way, there is a natural choice. It is said that Krishna – He looks very fresh and old, and young, but he is the oldest of the oldest! He is the oldest and at the same time – he is the original person:

‘Govindam adi-purusham’,

So, the more we find out about him, the more theologically it also begins to make sense, and in this way our knowledge is growing and growing. The more we hear – the more our faith is also deepening, and the more we say:

“ Well maybe…maybe there is something to it after all”.

Then when we say:

“Alright let me try the experiment, and I’ll start doing some devotional service”.

So when we do that, then the result is that Krishna becomes attracted by our service, and the result is that He begins to reciprocate. He begins to take the initiative towards us.

So now it’s no longer just book knowledge – no longer just hearing, but now it also begins to happen. There is practical experience, and there is actually realization coming, that Krishna is a reality – a part to deal with… a part to play with, and in this way people develop stronger faith in Krishna! In this way, eventually they will get very serious about it.….because sometimes you wonder:

“What is it that tips the balance? That makes people do it?”

But that’s what it is, to actually get some practical experience of Krishna!
