Feel the Pain of Others - Part 10

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva.

This is in continuation of the previous offering titled, "Feel the Pain of Others", which is a transcription of class given by HH Mahavishnu Goswami Maharaj in Minneapolis. In the previous offering we heard few points. Maharaj later began to answer one of the questions raised in the audience about Radha and Krishna and their relation between Them. Maharaj very nicely began to explain how 

a) Krishna is the source of everything, Radha also.
b) We can get a glimpse of His creation by studying Srimad Bhagavatam. 
c) Krishna's form is full of eternity, knowledge and bliss.
d) The relationship between Radha and Krishna is spiritual. We cannot imitate.
e) When we chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra sincerely, Krishna will reveal Himself to us.
f) Until we mature and adavance in devotional service, we should not study about the confidential pastimes.

Now we shall hear further.

"Once you mature in devotional service, automatically when you are advancing, these matters will be clear. Seemingly they appear like illicit connections because we are habituated to illicit connections. So we see everything as illicit. The sunlight is white. But my goggles are black. So I see everything as black. And I tell you, "You don't see? Everything is black?". You are saying, "You don't see? Everything is green." And we fight with each other tooth and nail. I tell you, "It is black." And you tell me, "It is green." But we don't know the truth at all. It is all white. Our goggles have got to be changed. So we have got material goggles at the moment. So these goggles have to be changed and we should have the spiritual goggles. And spiritualised eyes should be developed with the help of Srila Prabhupada's literature.Translations and purports are given very competently. And then your spectacles are changed and you see the real truth. This is what you should remember in short.

a) Radha and Krishna are non-different.
b) There is no material relationship between Them as we foolishly think.
c) It is all in the spiritual level.

More than that there is no need of any other understanding. As soon as the material thing is absent, there is no inebriety. For our own enjoyment, we have to have some other body. We cannot enjoy like Him. Krishna is Atmaram - completely self-satisfied. He does not even need Radha to satisfy Him. In rasa lila also, He left the gopis. With every gopi He was there. If you want to have 10 wives, you should be able to expand yourself into 10 and be with them. There has to be 10 goggles. But no. You can't do it. Even one does not survive. What to speak of 10? We are completely limited in our capacity and we are staying in the material rut."

Krishna willing we shall continue to hear Maharaj's answer to the above question in the subsequent offering.

Hare Krishna.

Thank you very much.
Yours in service of Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudeva,
Sudarshana devi dasi.
