Absorption Is A Key

"In the Padyavali of Rupa Gosvami it is stated that when the gopis hear the sound of Krsna's flute, they immediately forget all rebukes offered by the elderly members of their families. They forget their defamation and the harsh behavior of their husbands. Their only thought is to go out in search of Krsna. When the gopis meet Krsna, the display of their exchanging glances as well as their joking and laughing behavior is called anubhava, or subecstasy in conjugal love.

In the Lalita-madhava, Rupa Gosvami explains that the movements of Krsna's eyebrows are just like the Yamuna and that the smiling of Radharani is just like the moonshine. When the Yamuna and the moonshine come in contact on the bank of the river, the water tastes just like nectar, and drinking it gives great satisfaction. It is as cooling as piles of snow. Similarly, in the Padyavali, one constant companion of Radharani says, "My dear moon-faced Radharani, Your whole body appears very content, yet there are signs of tears in Your eyes. Your speech is faltering, and Your chest is also heaving. By all these signs I can understand that You must have heard the blowing of Krsna's flute, and as a result of this, Your heart is now melting." " ~ NOD, 44

"Everyone should attach himself to the bosom of the Supreme Personality of Godhead so that he can be happy eternally." B.Gita 9.33, P

"Always think about the lotus feet of Sri Krishna and you will find no difficulties in executing the tasks alloted to you by Krishna." ~ Srila Prabhupada letter, Aug 28, 1973

"No one can be a greater well-wishing friend to any living entity than the Supreme Personality of Godhead." ~ S. Bhagavatam, 3.15.31, P




 In the water or in the air, Krishna is everywhere. Think about it.

God can be a child if He wants too. Never underestimate His power, tho do relish His cuteness! :)
