(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 2004)

You see a beautiful flower and in Krishna Consciousness this is not a problem, because we can fully appreciate it:

“Look at the beauty of this flower. Look at the amazing colours, and the way it is shaped. The smell is also wonderful!”

We can fully enjoy it because we simply offer it to Krishna. So Srila Rupa Goswami says in ‘The Nectar of Devotion’ book, chapter 14:

“ That if one still has the desire to enjoy, then one simply should enjoy all the enjoyable things in relation to Krishna!”

So whatever things are related to Krishna are enjoyable – we can enjoy those! So it’s not that we have to give up anything, we can enjoy!
