In the Garga-saṁhitā it is explained that the Supreme Lord revealed to the demigods that there was a secret tunnel to the spiritual world. It was filled with water, so they boarded a boat and went to that transcendental abode. We don’t know of any secret tunnel, but for us the Lord made the spiritual world even more easily accessible by making a perfect replica available on our planet. It is amazing to see the extent of His unlimited mercy.
Let us just for a moment contemplate on Kṛṣṇa in the spiritual world, fully absorbed in His transcendental pleasure pastimes. Then in the middle of all of that He thought of the fallen, conditioned souls like us: “Maybe I should give them some mercy, …but why would I give them only some mercy; instead I will give them all the mercy!”
“Under the Desire Trees” takes us on a journey through the places and pastimes of Krsna in Vrindavan as told by Kadamba Kanana Swami during his annual parikramas through the holy land of Braja. This book depicts our experiences on the Vrndavana parikrama of Karttika 2018 and is a collection of the lectures inspired at these holy places.
