Present is the only guarantor of happiness not the future.
Living for love for forever not for the moment.
Appreciating small things in life not waiting for something big to happen.
Oh what more is left to achieve comparing to wet eyes ,as I am in love with myself happily live.
The last scene in MEERA movie fills my eyes with tears.This last scene totally justifies the fact when Bhakti becomes life then there are no if and buts left.In this scene the most touching aspect is when Meera was given a bowl of poison to drink in front of everyone following the order by established Dharam guru which she accepted it with full grace and amazed everyone on failure of punishment, proves her unshakeable faith in Krishna.
When bhakti take such a powerful form then there is no question of life/death,no pondering over right/wrong,sorrow/happiness,success/failure is left, as soul has taken over the full control.
There is no question of even Yoga left because every moment soul is peaceful & full of love which is ultimate aim of Yogis to achieve.
Oh Shri Hari I can’t compare myself against Meera. Meera, who gave up all the comforts of life to just follow the soul’s desire which is one and only you Shri Hari. Oh Shri Hari, I don’t know, how far I have come along on this path but one day this soul will be tired and restless by worldly love & desires which sometimes increase or decrease then oh saware ,allow your mercy to awaken the Meera inside me, discarding trembling over births, dancing freely in your loving madness.
I completely feel Vrindavan is not an ordinary place.The reason why I am desperate to go is to get easily soaked in the name of Krishna from head to feet.I strongly agree that when I will fully meet the requirements of entry then only effortlessly will be opening eyes looking the devotional sky of Krishna’s mercy.
Oh Krishna whatever is the reason but feeling of Vrindavan through this gives me satisfaction of selfless service unto your lotus feet.Oh shri Hari if I can’t go there for the time being,then please support me to transform my heart into vrindavan allow to build a temple decorated with garlands of emotions,lightning by the eternal bliss and the most important is offering you my tears.
Writing about the glories of Shri Krishna always immerse me with love ,which every time proves that my soul has always been thirsty for.This beautiful story of a Fruit seller and Krishna,I feel closely related to me.
Oh Krishna,I don’t know that from how many numerous birth my basket of emotions just like this fruit seller ,which passed from one phase to another was burdened with worldly manifestations.I totally compare myself with this fruit seller who look tired and hopeless after many unsuccessful attempts of selling fruits.All her suffering comes to an end when she entered into your abode.Smitten by your innocence freed her from all the fruits of her deeds, which let her to accept the price that you agreed.
Soaked in the ocean of love,this ultimate sale directed her to choose the service of your lotus feet.Oh Krishna this is what attracts you, the purity of basket, which is nothing but the heart indeed,that’s why you filled her basket with all the fortune that she was in need.
Oh Hari ,please bestow your mercy upon me allowing this sinful soul to empty its basket of deeds,which was always full of why this or that but was never why not you,why not you to let this soul enriched with tears of being so lovingly.
Oh vrindavan as Holi is coming, you are getting ready in service of Krishna .The fragrance of joy can be easily felt and more than that flourishing wish in the eyes of every gopi to colour Krishna.Going through the streets, the mouth watering smell of sweets is drawing attention of cowherd boys and no doubt knowing that this is all for Krishna is letting them feel lucky.
Oh vrindavan this is what you take pride in that every individual here is living to serve Krishna that’s why there is no place for any sort of unhappiness or dissatisfaction.Although you are blessed with nature’s beauty and to remark this special moment lord indra(king of heaven) is showering growth of new flowers with majestic fragrance.All the cows are producing more milk than usual days as they can sense the overwhelming joy is on its way. The flow of river Yamuna is sounding exactly like ghunghroo( feet ornament) dancing in rhythm feels like it is in realm of pure devotional service.
Seeing all this unmatchable joy ,oh vrindavan you are seeing Radha rani is saying to Krishna secretly,oh Krishna, I am in love with shayam rang only, all other colours of joy seems to be immaterial to me.Oh Krishna on this occasion, I want to colour your lotus feet with my emotions so,please give permission to my tears if they tend to come out to touch your lotus feet.
One of the beauty of Krishna Consciousness, I am finding is that you get technique of deep thinking that actually gives satisfactory result or change you to more concentrate towards your energy and channelize it.
I clearly noticed a very small difference by analyzing what I like to do developed through what our senses like, habits versus what I would love to. A clear example of myself is that I am in habit of keeping nice and tidy home, organised and make things easy to do and all that which I had been doing so many years before having kid. After having child, when finding it difficult to maintain it due to lack of energy, ignoring my first priority responsibilities, I felt so frustrated and blamed it all to my luck that I have no-one to help me.
After analysing my situation, I felt that I just do, this not something I actually love, I just do out of my habit which is overtaking me. I completely ignored what is more joyful for me which will give me more satisfaction, giving importance to something which is degrading me will just make me to lose my inner strength. At one point in our life we all mix up this little difference and lose our inner strength. Something that you really love to do, would always direct you to manage it in right way, you will accept all the hard work/management it comes with and lastly will always create positive energy in you which will be reflected in your personality.
Taking this concept further, I have found when I unable to think of Krishna/Chant his name due to busy family days or whatever reasons, felt lack of peace in myself but at same time find it manageable as well. I noticed that I am thinking about him/chanting whatever time limit is upon me, tried to make the most of it.
A true positive energy comes with its own power to maintain itself in all respects which declines all the questions of not doing it.

Oh Shri Radhe Rani this sinful,unintelligent soul requests you to bestow your mercy upon me to feel like Gopis. Just like Gopis were fully absorbed in Krishna’s thought,please Radhe Rani grant me this opportunity to serve Krishna. Gopis knew clearly Krishna is the only source for happiness and more than that his name is the provider,so Radhe Rani ,indulge me,soak me fully ,stopping me to search for numerous worldly satisfactions.
Gopis were the reason that Vridavana couldn’t remain just place but a destiny where all worldly question&answers to exhaust and get lost.For gopis ,Krishna was the only shelter,oh Radhe Rani your merciful glance can do all the miracles making me to think only of lotus feet.
Oh Gopis I request you to help me in convince Radhe Rani granting authority to serve shri hari,who was always present for me but couldn’t see through glasses of desires and hopes .Heh Radhe Rani bless me to lose interest in other matters,become useless so that can be full of only eternal blissfulness.
After watching this video I feel that why in spite of being part of Hindu culture or Knowing whatever about Bhagavad-Gita ,I missed so much this invaluable learning of life.
I am loving this very much and the only reason is that there is overwhelming joy about self-realization.Before you watch,would like to give a short background.
In Bhagavad-Gita the supreme godhead personality Krishna explains very well the reason for big difference in our thinking and actions.Not knowing science of emotional intelligence has a big impact on our lives.All this essential learning through spirituality actually result in constant development of personality that gives you actual control that you need.
I feel so true in the fact if you are actually keen to find more and more about Krishna,more you are free,relaxed and always relish ,become strong believer in independent happiness.
What I can say more,this journey of self realization getting more sweeter and sweeter and I wish who-ever watch this video feels the same.
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.
