If we want to approach Krsna in a mood of friendship, then we must fulfill his desire. An example is found in the Caitanya Caritamrta about Haridas Thakur.

panca_tattvaAt one point, Lord Caitanya was lamenting and saying to Haridas Thakur, “What about all those living entities who are in different bodies where they cannot chant the Holy Name?”

Haridas said, “My Lord, please don’t be in anxiety. The echo off the trees is the chanting of the trees. When the Holy Name is chanted, the echo bounces off the trees and in this way, the trees are also chanting. So these living entities also get the mercy. Don’t be in anxiety.”  

So, that’s very nice because usually it’s the living beings who are in anxiety and praying to the Lord, ” O lord, please take away my anxiety! O Krsna, somehow or the other, make it work, please! O Krsna, please protect me – Nrsimhadeva, Nrsimhadeva!”

Like that, we are always approaching the lord to deal with our anxiety but look at Haridas Thakur –  he deals with the anxiety of the Lord! So that is how one conquers Krsna.
