You cannot just love like that. At first, love is in practice. We can say, love-under-construction just as in work-in-progress. So called love-at-first-sight does not go so deep. Love at first sight may be the initial attraction but how deep does it go?
Love for Krsna develops by finding out more and more about Krsna: who he is, what he does, what he says, what he likes… and then, if we begin to act in such a way that is pleasing to Krsna, then gradually everything becomes favourable.
Then we begin to slowly develop our love for Krsna because Krsna is wonderful and by acting in a way that is pleasing to him, we too will become pleased, because Krsna’s directions are perfect, full of depth and wisdom, and whoever dedicates his life to that, will see that his life will become perfect…
