(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 04 October 2009, Durban, South Africa, Lecture) We cannot be on automatic pilot; we must capture Krsna by making a special sacrifice! Then, when we have captured Krsna, … more
(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Berlin, September 2011)
It is very interesting how selfless the love of Srimati Radharani and the gopis is, and she is of course, the topmost. I find this image of her love being a mirror reflecting the qualities of Krsna and then eternally discovering more qualities – I find it very interesting because it just shows how one eternally makes spiritual advancement. No limit to it, never!
It’s very profound. This of course, does not just apply to Srimati Radharani. It applies to all devotees, and especially to all the eternal associates of the Lord, and even to us. We are also discovering, little by little, more and more about the nature of Krsna, the qualities of Krsna. At this stage our love is not very developed, but some attraction is there. It’s unavoidable, because Krsna is Bhagavan.
Srila Jiva Goswami explains one definition of the word Bhagavan. He breaks it up in three syllables.: Bha, Ga, and Va. He says Bha stands for Bhajanya, Ga for Guna, and Va, for Vasistha. Bhajanya Guna Vasistha means that Krsna is irresistible – you have to worship Him.
So this is the situation. Therefore there is no question of not coming to the point of loving Krsna. Sooner or later, even demons are transformed.
