(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 2011)
Taste is not forbidden. It is not something that is a taboo. It is not that spiritual life should only be a duty. Fun is actually part of spiritual life. Here is it said that:
‘One who executes his duties according to my injunctions’.
The word ‘duty’ was a word that I was allergic to prior to Krishna Consciousness. I must admit that ‘duty’ felt like something extremely dry, with very little hope for inspiration and basically an austerity:
‘How long can you just act on the basis of duty?’
Therefore I would like to offer that Krishna Consciousness is (Sanskrit) joyfully performed even from the very beginning, then there is so much juice and there is so much taste!
