  9. 9. In My Opinion…….<br />Do Not Hear About Krishna<br />Why?<br />Even if one drop of his sweet name drops in the ears, we will forget everything including our families, friends, activities etc .<br /> One will wander in search of Krishna <br />But its very hard to understand Him<br />Radha was in the topmost ecstacy called Mahabhava<br />Not to be imitated!<br />
  10. 10. The bee suddenly disappeared and she felt mad as she was thinking that it might have gone to inform Krishna about her thoughts.<br /> This is another form of ecstacy!<br />
  11. 11. Bee Appeared Again<br />Krishna is so kind that he has sent the bee back to me even though I sent him negative messages<br />You have come to take me there?<br />How is he faring there?<br />Does he remember his foster parents and the Gopis?<br />
  12. 12. Uddhava was standing nearby and hearing her.<br />Uddhava presented to all the Gopis:<br />You have attained the highest perfection <br />You can give up everything including families for Krishna<br />But Gopis were not interested in “ this “ !<br />
  13. 13. Uddhava chose to read to them instead of letting them read it<br />Why?<br />Krishna couldn’t write the message distinctly because he was so moved by the devotion of the Gopis.<br />
  14. 14. Uddhava read:<br />Seperation between ourselves is impossible because I am all pervading<br />mayatatamidamsarvamjagadavyakta-murtinamat-sthanisarva-bhutaninacahamtesvavasthitah<br />- By Me, in My unmanifested form, this entire universe is pervaded. All beings are in Me, but I am not in them ( BG 9:4)<br />
  15. 15. Uddhava continues:<br />Gopis are perfect in knowledge of Krishna while the jivas are forgetful<br />No separation between fire and air so similarly there is no separation between jivas and Krishna<br />We are suffering because of forgetfulness<br />As rivers flow towards the ocean, everything leads to Krsna<br />Only through Bhakti can one understand Krishna<br />Simply by understanding Krishna all knowledge is known and perfection is attained<br />
  16. 16. Transcendental knowledge is of no use for you<br />You are already liberated<br />The feeling of separation is wanted<br />I have separated myself because I want you to increase your love<br />Mahaprabhu taught that Vipralambaseva is the topmost<br />
  17. 17. Gopis Speak<br />Is Krishna entrapped by the lovely women of Mathura?<br />Did he get married to a Princess after defeating Kamsa?<br />We are constantly remembering his walking style, joking manner and his sweet smile<br />
  18. 18. Uddhava noticed the condition of the Gopis and again repeated the whole story<br />Meditate and be saved from the fire of separation by closing your eyes and thinking about Him<br />Krishna is also thinking about you<br />Uddhava acted as the preceptor spiritual master of the Gopis<br />
  19. 19. Gopis Requested<br />Requested Uddhava to stay In Vraj longer<br />He kept them engaged in Krishna consciousness<br />Uddhava was inspired by the Gopis and composed songs in praise of their superexcellent qualities<br />
