Our inner aspiration for rasa, is buried within our hearts which are tied down and sealed. But hearing and chanting the glories of Krishna breaks the seal on the heart and allows it to awaken and open to Krishna, the reservoir of pleasure, ecstasy Himself.
What is bhajana? It is a transaction of the heart, not of any formality. In Krishna devotion, Krishna-bhakti, the only consideration is the dedication of the heart. Krishna wants that, and not any external formality of the civilized or non-civilized world.
In the deepest plane of Reality, the deepest wave of Krsna consciousness is moving, and there so many jiva-souls are dancing. And that dance is the Absolute Dance wherein everything surrenders to Krsna in the mood of Vrndavan.
We may have erected high walls on all sides to protect ourselves so that Krsna consciousness may not enter, but Krsna is a thief, and a thief requires no invitation. No preparation is necessary for His welcome. He will enter for His own interest, and that is our consolation. Our solace is that Krsna is a thief. Maya has erected her high walls on all sides, but nothing is sufficient to stop Krsna consciousness. Krsna is a thief, and stealthily He will enter one day.
The innermost hankering of every living soul is for Beauty, Love, Affection, and Harmony; not for power, knowledge, or anything else. This is the diagnoses of the whole creation in time and space; their common cause is one. There is only one end – many are not necessary – only one, the one, that very one we want, is a relationship of Divine Love with Krsna.
A show of humility has no value; imitation has no value anywhere. Proper humility can only occur when one feels his connection with the autocratic Lord, his Master. Then only can he feel humble.
Divine words of His grace
