Why not Krishna?

Photobucket

While I was chanting my Hare Krishna mantra japa [on beads] early this morning before our beautiful Deities, this topic came to me. I am having a number of online conversations about Krishna and whether he is really God, or if there even is a God, or if there is really anything beyond this life. I have to admit to not being very expert in “proving” the existence of Krishna, or at least giving good arguments why God exists. Perhaps it is because I have rarely had a problem with this.

Can "Ordinary" Daily Activities be "Spiritual"?

Praying poseI thought of this topic while doing yard work yesterday. I have written a poem on another blog, "Is Yard Work Devotional Service?", [http://connect.krishna.com/node/2955] which speaks of this topic, though now I am looking at it differently. In a number of places Prabhupada speaks of persons doing the same work with different results due to their intention and consciousness. As aspiring devotees of Krishna, we want to live our life in relationship to Krishna, offering him any activity as we do it and the results of such work.

Bhakti-yoga or Krishna consciousness means quite simply being conscious of Krishna. When we love someone we naturally think of them, so when we love Krishna it is natural to think of him and want to hear or read about his lila or divine activities. Those of us who want to love Krishna—or even believe in him if we are new—will make progress in knowing and loving Krishna by reading about his pastimes in the Shrimad Bhagavatam or in Shrila Prabhupada’s Krishna book which is the summary of the 10th Canto. We are advised to read with the desire to understand and in the mood of service, humility and reverence--at least with that ideal in mind.
