The King

God is proud of His Divinity in Sri Krishna. Man is proud of his humanity
in Sri Krishna.<br>
<br>
Sri Krishna is the beloved Boatman who untiringly plies his Boat of consciousness
between India?s unparalleled history and her unrivalled spirituality.<br>
<br>
Man?s growing divinity cries for the human perfection in Sri Krishna the
man. In Sri Krishna?s humanity lies man?s promise of becoming divine.<br>
<br>
Sri Krishna stole the hearts of the Gopis unconditionally. The Gopis stole
His Ecstasy unreservedly.<br>
<br>
Sweetness and grace inexpressible, bond unbreakable, sacrifice unfathomable?this
indeed is Radha, the Mother-Heart of Sri Krishna.<br>
<br>
Radha carries the human soul into Sri Krishna?s Heart. Sri Krishna transforms
the human soul into the Divine Soul and commands it to play its role in the
Divine Play.<br>
<br>
The influence of the Mahabharata is a flowering of centuries. The influence
of Sri Krishna is the Blessing for Eternity.<br>
<br>
The Pandavas had love for Sri Krishna. Sri Krishna had not only love but
also unstinting concern for the Pandavas.<br>
<br>
Arjuna ultimately became the spiritual child of Sri Krishna. Sri Krishna
ultimately became the loving slave of Arjuna?s surrender.<br>
<br>
The Gita is Sri Krishna?s Heart, his Vision-in-Fulfilment. The Gita is humanity?s
Breath, its Journey towards Immortality.<br>
<br>
Sri Krishna?s Flute stirs the Universal Consciousness. Sri Krishna?s Gita
enchants the Transcendental Consciousness.<br>
<br>
Sri Krishna plays on His flute. We hear. We do something more. We barter
our body?s dust with His Soul?s plenitude.<br>
<br>
If the Avatar Sri Krishna is the most complicated Door, then the Gita, His
Song, is the most effective Key.<br>
<br>
For an earth-bound soul, the Gita can fruitfully reconcile the dark problems
of human life. For a Heaven-seeking soul, the Gita can awaken a new consciousness
of ever-increasing Bliss.<br>
<br>
I do. I refuse to accept the invitation of Desire. Sri Krishna does. He comes
in to illuminate my consciousness.<br>
<br>
My ideal is to mount higher and higher up the ladder of divine evolution.
Sri Krishna?s Ideal is to make of Himself the divine Sacrifice to strengthen
the rungs of the ladder.<br>
<br>
Sri Krishna is sweet when I realise Him in the perfection of my ?I”. Sri
Krishna is sweeter when I realise Him as the Doer. Sri Krishna is sweetest
when I realise Him as the Pilot of all my actions and myself as His dedicated
instrument.<br>
<br>
An aspirant?s is the cry that compels Sri Krishna to seize him with the very
madness of love.<br>
<br>
A Vaishnava?s life is love-intoxicated. He is a portion of Sri Krishna?s
individuality, perpetuating all the divine qualities of an everlasting Life.<br>
<br>
When I live in Sri Krishna?s Soul, I see the Truth from above. When I live
in Sri Krishna?s Heart, I see the Truth from within. When I live in Sri Krishna?s
Body, I see the Truth from without.<br>
<br>
Sri Krishna is the shoreless ocean of Bliss. But as soon as I sincerely dedicate
myself to Him, He presents me with His own Boat and takes me to the boundless
Shore, the Golden All.<br>
<br>
Sri Krishna walked the soil to annihilate the philosophies of world-shunning
spirituality and of world-grasping materialism. He established on earth the
?Dharmarajya,? the Kingdom of the Inner Law. He restored the true spirit
of Kshatriya heroism, motivated not by human ego, but by Divine Will, making
man a devoted and active instrument of the Supreme. He brought down to the
earth-consciousness the supreme Truth that earth and earthly life, being
inherently divine, must be made outwardly divine, fully and totally, in every
sphere, in every aspect.<br>
