Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

SB 1.6 - Nārada's prema on seeing the form of the Lord

Being overpowered by feelings of happiness, every part of Nārada’s body became enlivened. Being absorbed in an ocean of ecstasy, he could neither see himself nor the Lord. All his limbs developed the symptoms of prema, and being covered with goose bumps prema became difficult to bear. Nārada lost the form of the Lord which he was seeing. Spiritual feelings of happiness and intense ecstasies have no mundane comparison. Each and every part of the body or senses has its particular function. After seeing the Lord, all the senses become fully awakened to render service unto the Lord because in the liberated state the senses are fully efficient in serving the Lord. As such, in that transcendental ecstasy, it so happened that the senses became separately enlivened to serve the Lord.

The transcendental form of the Lord satisfies the mind’s desire and at once erases all mental incongruities. Thus the Lord is not formless. But His form is completely different from all forms of our material experience. None of the material forms can satisfy the mind, nor can they vanish the disturbances of the mind. One who has seen that form even once is not satisfied with anything else. When it is said the Lord is formless, it means that He has nothing like a material form. As spiritual beings, we are searching after that form of the Lord life after life. We are not satisfied by any other form of material appeasement. Nārada got a glimpse of the form, but upon losing it, he became perturbed and stood up to search it out.
