(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 15 September 2014, Cape Town, South Africa, Evening Lecture)
To always see Krsna everywhere and never forget him for a moment, to see everything connected to Krsna, is Krsna consciousness! In that way, we see Krsna’s energy and we see Krsna behind it. It may be that we see Krsna everywhere but that is not satisfying to the heart because that does not fulfil the relationship. We want to see Krsna in person so we can personally serve him because it is devotional service that is the essence. The key is devotional service! Therefore Krsna consciousness means to accept a service and to, somehow or other, just take that service and dedicate oneself to that service with full energy, with all one’s personal might and ability. That is the spirit to taking up a service!
