Thank you Message – H.D.Goswami

Abandoning any aspect of life that is not directly related to Krishna Consciousness should be a natural process. With time, and sincere practice, a devotee understands that Krishna is everything and that service to Krishna does everything. #HDG #Hdgoswami

Mysticism can be interesting or relevant before understanding that there is an Absolute Truth and that we are an integral part of it; that this Supreme Source, Krishna, offers us perfect love, perfect protection and enlightenment. In the absence of the sun, lamps can be useful. But in the full presence of the sun, these lights are no longer relevant. Science explains that ayahuasca is a hallucinogenic drug. Therefore, a serious devotee does not use it. #HDG #Hdgoswami

The Supreme Lord Himself creates, maintains and annihilates the cosmos. However, such activities are performed in response to the desires of conditioned souls, who are described herein as hetu, or the cause of cosmic activity. The Lord creates this world to facilitate the conditioned soul’s attempt to exploit nature and ultimately to facilitate his self-realization.

Since conditioned souls cannot perceive their own constitutional identity, they are described here as avyākṛtam, or unmanifest. In other words, the living entity cannot perceive his real form unless he is completely Kṛṣṇa conscious. #hdg #hdgoswami
