    The songs of our great teachers (acharyas) instruct us about the character of those absorbed in transcendence. Thus we get a glimpse of their spiritual, compassionate vision--we can thus imagine what it must be like, and try to enter into it according to our capacity. They desire that everyone be overcome with the bliss of chanting the holy name of Krishna. This is true enlightened welfare work. Seeing the Universe's inhabitants as illusioned by the false promise of material enjoyment, Shrila...

    Understanding even in theory that our true identity is spiritual--eternal, blissful, consciousness--or said negatively, that we are "not the body", is the beginning of spirituality. Though considered basic or "elementary" in our progressive spiritual life, the fact that we are not the physical body or mind but consciousness, is a matter of deep realization to understand. Experience has strongly demonstrated through the example of many devotees, that it is not easy for souls conditioned by the...

    A funny thing about Andra Pradesh and other states in South India, they have this saying. "We do not know what Krishna looks like.
