(Kadamba Kanana Swami, April 2010, Radhadesh, Belgium, Lecture)

KKS_vp_2014The spiritual master is the representative of Krsna. As a representative, what power do you really have? Krsna has the real power. He is omniscient. He is omnipotent. He is all knowing. He is all powerful. He can do anything! But his representative, what can his representative do? Only so much or so little…

The representative, in a way, can only desire. The one thing the spiritual master cannot do is force! But, if only he could, he would for sure! (laughter)

If it was possible to force people in to Krsna consciousness, oh boy, we will have a field day, but it is not like that! It is a voluntary process. The spiritual master really can only desire, desire that his disciples somehow or other take advantage of this very rare opportunity! It is what Srila Prabhupad used to say, “You had so many lifetimes and in so many lifetimes, you did what you want! Now, please give this one  to me! Just give me one lifetime! Just one!”
