Sweet Darshan from Sri Vrindavan Dhaam - 10.05.2012

Therefore intelligent men, they should inquire, "Where we shall enter in family life and we can eternally enjoy?" That is Krsna's family. You enter into Krsna's family, Vrndavana family, where Krsna has got His father, mother, His friends, His lover, His beloved, His cows, His garden, His Yamuna. You enter that, that family. Then yad gatva na nivartante [Bg. 15.6]. Then you will not have to return back again to this temporary family, which will not stay. But if you enter Krsna's family... Therefore Krsna comes. Krsna is so kind that -- you are so much family, fond of family life -- "Just here see. I have got My family. I am not impersonal. I have got My family. I have got My father. I have got My mother. I have got My friend. I have got My beloved, Radharani, and the gopis. Everything I have got. You can enter also. Come. Why you are rotting here?" That is Krsna's mission.

So the Krsna consciousness movement means to practice in this life how to enter Krsna's family. You enter Krsna's family as you like. There are five rasas: santa-rasa, dasya-rasa, sakhya-rasa, vatsalya-rasa, and madhurya-rasa. That is reflected in this world also, the same. Tejo-vari-mrdam vinimayah. This..., this material world is reflection of the spiritual world. Chayeva yasya bhuvanani bibharti durga [Bs. 5.44]. Here there are rasas, santa-rasa, dasya-rasa. Here also there is master and servant; there is friend and friend; there is father and mother and the son; there is beloved. Everything is there, but they are imitation, chaya. They are not reality. So if you want real friendship, then make friendship with Krsna.
