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.
Absolutely delightful conversation.I loved it.
The most attractive part of love is its ability to happen or manage itself.This is what we actually seek all the time but it gets limited when we continuously depend on the external world to realise its true nature.
This what makes me feel the beauty of human life that we actually have brilliant nature of search for reasons.As our original nature is nothing but 100% Management Free Love,this video explain the right technique to achieve this.
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.
HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE HARE RAM RAM RAM HARE HARE
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.
