Sri Balarama rasayatra

Books : KRSNA, The Supreme Personality of Godhead – 1970 Edition :  Volume 1 : KB 1-21 / The Gopis Attracted by the Flute :

Kṛṣṇa was very pleased with the atmosphere of  the forest where flowers bloomed and bees and drones hummed very  jubilantly. While the birds, trees and branches were all looking very  happy, Kṛṣṇa, tending the cows, accompanied by Śrī Balarāma and the cowherd boys, began to vibrate His transcendental flute. After hearing the vibration of the flute of Kṛṣṇa, the gopīs in Vṛndāvana remembered Him and began to talk amongst themselves about how nicely Kṛṣṇa was playing His flute. When the gopīs were describing the sweet vibration of Kṛṣṇa’s flute, they also  remembered their pastimes with Him; thus their minds became disturbed,  and they were unable to describe completely the beautiful vibrations.  While discussing the transcendental vibration, they remembered also how  Kṛṣṇa dressed, decorated with a peacock feather on His head, just like a dancing actor, and with blue flowers pushed over His ear. His garment  glowed yellow-gold, and He was garlanded with a vaijayantī necklace. Dressed in such an attractive way, Kṛṣṇa filled up the holes  of His flute with the nectar emanating from His lips. So they remembered Him, entering the forest of Vṛndāvana, which is always glorified by the footprints of Kṛṣṇa and His companions. Read the rest of this entry →

760210SB.MAY                   Lectures                   232164/530501 Krsna says in the Bhagavad-gita, mattah parataram nanyat.  Nobody is greater in every respect. Not that “Krsna is shorter at least  in this respect.” He is shorter in one respect, that He could not repay back  the obligation He received from the gopis. He was only shorter to  the gopis. That is His grace. He said that “I cannot repay you. It  is impossible. Please be satisfied with your own service.” That is  the gopis. So He was shorter always, especially before Radharani. He  felt Himself shorter. Otherwise He is the Supreme. He is always  the Supreme. Mattah parataram nanyat kincid asti dhananjaya. So if  you want to conquer over this unconquerable Krsna, then, according to  the prayer of Brahma and appreciated by Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu,  that sthane sthitah sruti-gatam tanu-van-manobhih: “You remain in  your place, it doesn’t matter, but you become very humble. Don’t be  puffed up.” Jnane prayasam udapasya namanta eva. You should not  think yourself that you are very advanced, “By my speculative knowledge  I can understand God.” That is mistake. That is not possible. You have to  give up first of all this attempt, that “I am very learned,” “I am very  rich,”or “I am very this and that. Therefore for me to  understandGod, it is nothing.” They think like that.  Janmaisvarya-sruta-sribhih. Read the rest of this entry →
