(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 24 February 2019, New York, United States of America, Bhagavad-gita 7.7)

We can see how everything is connected with Krsna. We can see that Krsna is the seed of all existence. We can see that Krsna is present everywhere. Just like it is mentioned in the Bhagavad-gita by Krsna Himself – raso aham apsu kaunteya; I am the taste of water. Prabhasmi sasi suryayo; I am the light of the sun and the moon. Pranavah sarva-vedesu; I am the syllable om in the Vedic mantras. Sabdah khe paurusam nrsu; I am the sound in ether and also the ability in man (Bhagavad-gita 7.8).

So everywhere Krsna is present, everywhere. It is not that we have to artificially try to be Krsna conscious while being busy with all this material energy, doing so many things everyday, and then somehow or other fix our mind on that form of the Supreme Lord; realising how difficult it is because we are busy from Monday to Friday and then the weekend comes along and we always have so many things on your mind and then we think to ourself – “How will I think of Krsna when there are so many other things going on around me?“. But then we must see how everything around us is connected with Krsna, everything. Everything is simply the energy of Krsna and Krsna is the origin of everything. Therefore sutre mana-gana iva (Bhagavad-gita 7.7); He is behind everything and He is the thread that connects everything.
