Kadamba Kanana Swami, 3 October 2018, Camp de Masque, Mauritius, Srimad Bhagavatam 1.1.1)

Even Mother Yashoda could occasionally, for some moments, understand that Krsna was the Supreme Lord. But then, she would forget it once again. That is how it works with the eternal residents of Vrndavana. We also forget that Krsna is the Supreme Lord again and again, but in a different way. We forget that Krsna is the Supreme Lord and then we also forget Krsna Himself. The residents of Vrndavana however forget that Krsna is the Supreme Lord, but they still think of Krsna Himself all the time! 

Every moment, they are thinking of Krsna. Never is there a moment when they do not think of Him. They think of Krsna with such great intensity, with such great eagerness, samutkaṇṭhā – with great eagerness to be with Krsna. In this way, they are always thinking about Him. But when we forget, we completely forget that Krsna is in control, that Krsna is the origin of everything, and so we just forget Krsna all together and start to think of the material energy. That is the difference between us and the eternal residents of Vrndavana.
