(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 12 March 2016, Durban, South Africa, Lecture at House Program)


How is it possible for the spiritual world to be present in the material world? Krsna did that, somehow or other, he fit the spiritual world into the material world because Krsna was thinking to himself, “Aaah, there are these conditioned souls. They are excluded from the mercy of the ocean of transcendental love known as the prema sagar, which is the spiritual world.” 

There is an ever increasing ocean of loving exchange between Krsna and his devotees. Everyone’s love is always growing because everyone is discovering a new quality of Krsna’s. It is said in Adi-lila Chapter 4 of Caitanya Caritamrta that Srimati Radharani always discovers a new quality of Krsna and she immediately loves that quality therefore her love is always increasing. We can see that every devotee is the same – we are also beginning like that. Our love is in the beginning stage. Little by little, we discover qualities of Krsna and little by little, we get captured by these qualities.

So in the ocean of transcendental love, the devotees become more and more captured by the qualities of Krsna and their love increases, and Krsna becomes captured by their increasing love. Therefore the prema sagar, the ocean of transcendental love, is eternally increasing. It is that which is reflected in the Holy Name.
