(Kadamba Kanana Maharaja, 29 December 2011, Munich, Germany)We are coming from South Africa- from summer into winter. I’m not sure what is worse- the cold or the darkness! It’s so dark, shew! What a shock, coming from all that bright light and the sun and the early mornings… so that is only a comparison between Africa and Europe. Can one imagine coming from the effulgence of the spiritual world into the darkness of the material world? How dense is the darkness of the material world! How thick are the layers of ignorance! How much is the living being covered by layers of forgetfulness! And we, who are somehow or other awoken to Krsna consciousness, can be compared to a clouded sky which sometimes has a little hole in the deck of clouds which appears and a little beam of light enters through, before the hole is again covered by a grey cloud…How deep is our Krsna consciousness…?
