Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

SB 1.3 - The Lord is unattached

The Lord is the master of the six senses and contacts the six sense objects (sound, touch, form, taste, smell and thought) but is not attached to them. He is fully omnipotent with six opulences and experiences happiness arising from them. He creates, maintains and destroys the universes without being in the least affected. He is within every living being and is always independent. The Lord is called the amogha-līlaḥ (whose glories are spotless), which indicates there is nothing lamentable in His creation. He is full with six opulences namely wealth, power, fame, beauty, knowledge and renunciation. Thus He is the master of the senses. He creates the universes to reclaim the living beings who are within them suffering threefold miseries, maintains them, and in due course annihilates the universes without being affected by such actions. Just as one smells odor without being connected with the odorous article, the Lord is connected with material creation superficially.
