This short story of Udhav who was best friend and devotee of Krishna explains very beautifully knowledge becomes not just boring after a certain point,it becomes source of proud,which harms the personality . Udhav who claimed himself very knowledgeable person and loving Krishna, easily became a proud person which was leading to degrading of personality.
The beauty of true association with Krishna is he fully takes care of you and lets you free from any personality impurity.Krishna immediately sent him Vrindavan(highest spiritual place in the world) asked him to give message to all his loving gopis. He instantly followed the orders and left for Vrindavan.
Vrindavan’s gopis madly went to Udhav to inquire about Krishna,they soon started complaining about Krishna,asking several questions about his lifestyle,along with tears in their eyes.Seeing all this Udhav got initial impression of gopis i.e.full of ignorance and felt they are just wasting their time.As a great scholar,he immediately started explaining about Karma,life,death,and insisting importance of reading scriptures.All gopis found him extremely boring, they straightway said”what they would do by gaining all knowledge when their minds are always occupied by memories of Krishna “.
These long lectures on life,death are full of dissatisfaction if you are not loving Krishna by thinking of his different leelas. Udhav was deeply affected by the way he saw gopis fully immersed in unconditional love for Krishna and specially when he met Radha.Gopis taught Udhav to fall in love,lose yourself let everything go, to feel melting of soul just like when a river loses itself when it meets sea.This is feature of true devotee who lets everything go and live only for Unconditional Love which is nothing but Krishna.
Udhav shredded all his knowledge proudness and started feeling like gopis and returned to Krishna by chanting his name along with Vrindavan soil’s dust on his head.
This story story of Radha and Krishna fills my heart with love which is free from any material aspect.Krishna promised Radha to take birth on earth with her heart in order to experience how it feels to be devotee. Radha who is the queen of devotees of Krishna one day simply said to Krishna you won’t be able to understand what it feels like to be fully surrendered to you.
Krishna did this in order to satisfy Radha what she feels like for him.This beautiful act of Krishna makes me to become short of words to explain level of bondness between them.
Shri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was the saint born with Radha’s heart taught the world how to be fully surrendered to Krishna.This can also be seen as when mother trying to teach something to children,so demonstrating it make more easy to understand.The supreme way to attain love for Krishna is by chanting his name.

This day for me is like soul day because concentration is totally towards Krishna .This day I I keep listening & talking about Krishna only feels easily get tears of unlimited ,unbeatable happiness feels like flowing like a pure stream of river.
It reminds me my childhood days in India when me and my younger brother used to be so excited ,decorating room with lights,balloon,making lots of arty things making a gokul village where Krishna was born,mom used to make lots of Indian sweets and much more yummy dishes serving Krishna first then we had to eat.
Few days ago I had a car accident and I was very upset,initially thinking not to to celebrate then immediately I realized for such a materialistic thing just my car I am denying to celebrate such a divine day.By grace of him nothing happened to me given the fact for which I am completely insured,also I can easily afford expense as well.
Oh Krishna please forgive me for all known & unknown wrong thinking I have been going through.Oh I just can’t for the big day tom.
