hare krsna hare krsna krsna krsna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare -seemingly only a few words. weird words, but still just mere words. one could say. one who sees externally could say. one who sees externally and who is not tasting that wonderful transcendental ecstasy which these so-called weird words bring to anyone who at least theoretically accepts that the maha-mantra* is the direct communion with the Supreme Beautiful Loveable Hugable Personality of Godhead Sri Krsna could say. Whaaaaatdidusayyyy? that's right, kids! Krsna is the source of all pleasure, knowledge and guess what? Eternity! Let's forget for a moment the sectarian vision of different religions and faiths; like i'm this and i'm that and let's deal with the universal principle of love. Who wouldn't like to be loved? Can anyone say: i don't want to be loved? No. Everyone wants to be loved. And because everyone wants to be loved, he/she loves. That love however has three enemies: temporarity, ignorance and misery. These three enemies beat the love, lock it up and kill it. The temporarity kills the love by cutting our relationship with a person we love by death or by disagreement due to selfishness. Misery kills the love by giving us a miserable feeling when our love is checked. Because we want the love to go on forever, we become miserable when the joy ride is over. And perhaps the most important is the ignorance and that manifests in our misplacing our loving propensity on the wrong person. We don't know who's who. But why do we want to enjoy the love forever and ever, why we do not want it to stop and why we become frustrated when the person we gave our love to cannot reciprocate it? The Vedas, ancient scriptures of India give answer to this question very nicely. Because we're sat cit ananda. Repeat after me: SAT, CIT, ANANDA. Very good! Jaya Hare Krsna!

Now check this out:

SAT -eternity

CIT -knowledge

ANANDA -blissfulness

That's right, just like Krsna we are also of the same quality. The difference is that we're small(limited) satcitananda and Krsna is the great(unlimited) satcitananada. when the small satcitananda wants to become the great satcitananda, the great satcitananda sends the small satcitananda into the non-satcitananda world. why? well, because such desire, you know like trying to be something you're not, pretending, being artificial is totally off, cuz it brings lies, pride, jealousy, competition, rivalry, disharmony, anxiety and that's like totally totally nonsatcitananda! I dunno about you, but like for example me, I don't want these non-satcitananda things in my house! So, anyway the small satcitananda's then get stuck here trying to be God to one another like hey come here, be my slave kinda thing and that's why the whole thing is messed up. BUT! when the small satcitananda ultimately figures: waitaminute waitaminute waitaminute! What the skate am i doing here? and starts figuring things out like if i don't like to die, why i have to die? if i want to boss everyone around me, why am i feeling unsatisfied now when I'm the president of the USA? the big satcitananda then sends some help from the satcitananda world. So that help is of course different for different ages. Now, if you look around and in case you still haven't noticed is the age of quarrel and hypocrisy, so the method of how to get out is very easy. simply chanting the Hare Krsna song, dancing in ecstasy like a madman(c'mon everyone can do it-YOU TOO BUT YOU ARE AFRAID TO LOOSE WHAT YOU CAN NEVER LOOSE-FREEDOM) and tasting beautiful wonderful delicious food offered with love and devotion to Krsna called prasadam(and becuz Krsna is totally spiritual(like omnipotent), he doesn't take the food like us, he takes the spirit of that offering, so the rest after He takes we can eat or when you become a devotee you can serve to other hungry wolves(hi!)). And this is the meditation. Simply engage all your senses: mind, eye, ear, tongue, even your genital if you have nothing better to do and it's ok in the transcendental (satcitananda) blissfulness by chanting about Krsna, dancing about Krsna, talking about Krsna, tasting about Krsna, arguing about Krsna, having Krsna conscious kids, in other words everything use in relationship with Krsna and because Krsna is the complete whole, all these activites will open up and become unlimited and complete. So you no longer see that this is America, this is China, this a Russian man, this is a black woman, my stuff, your stuff and blah blah blah no, you see everyone and everything as part and parcel of the big unlimited sat cit ananda -Krsna. And the more you chant hare krsna hare rama like a madman 24 hours, the more you remember your original materially unlimited yet transcendentally fragmental form you had with Krsna in the spiritual world. that form we all have, it is simply covered and as soon as we revive it, we can transfer ourselves into the unlimited dimension of Krsnaloka and stay high forever with Krsna. JAYA!

so this is just a little introduction to krsna consciousness, a dedicational process which has been very mercifully brought by Srila Prabhupada, our spiritual master and i invite you to inquire more about how blissful and mind-expanding it is. kidnap yourself into the magical krsna land now.

 

*or in other wrods hare krsna hare krsna krsna krsna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
