Entering Transcendental Plane

Question: It is said in the scriptures that our reality is a perverted reflection of Krishna-loka. Can it be thought that just as I am here doing service in the material world, there is another me performing service in Krishna-loka? Something like a parallel reality...

Krishna is served with a transcendental body.

If you serve the Lord thinking that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead and you give your everything—your kama, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, your entire self, whatever bad or good there is in you—if you give everything you have for the service to Krishna, then your body becomes transcendental (aprakrita). You cannot worship the Lord with a mundane body (prakrita deha). Only an eternal, transcendental body can worship or serve the Lord.

When you come to Goloka Vrindavan, you will get this chance. One day, you must come there, but everybody does not go there at the same time. It depends on one's devotion and one's service. Everybody does not always get such a chance, those who are fortunate souls can get there. Gurudev is an eternal being, he is there and will always be there, and you can meet him there—somebody may come to meet him earlier, somebody later.

When you go to Goloka Vrindavan, you will get a transcendental body (aprakrita deha) and you will get service there. That planet is not just one house, some small place. It is Goloka Vrindavan—it is a very big planet. You are afraid, "If so many people go there, I may not get a place there!" This is an inconceivable matter (achintya-bhedabheda tattva). We have a puppy brain, how can we think about such things? We are living in the material world and we cannot even conceive that kind of planet from this material world. That planet is the supreme-most, the highest plane. In our situation, we are all trying to serve our Guru and his devotees, that is our main goal.

We have come to Krishna's family, we have got initiation and entered the proper line of Bhaktivinod-dhara, Rupanuga-dhara. If you want to stay within this channel, you must never leave Krishna consciousness and service to the Lord no matter what situation comes, no matter what kind of problem comes. We always say, "Sevaya adhikara diya, ei-bar more koro doya. Prabhu, please give some right to serve you!" You have got some service, but as soon as you face some problem because of the illusory environment, you leave that service. Do not do that. You must do your service—you must do it properly, you must practise properly. That is my earnest request to you all.

Sri Bhakti Siddhanta Vani
'If someone does not consider it necessary to faithfully follow their Guru and the Vaishnavs, their endeavour to serve the Lord is not service to the Lord—it is service to maya.'

 

Jaya 'guru-maharaja'
'The shelter of your feet, which are cooling like millions of moons, is our hope to attain the nectar of Sri Sri Radha-Govinda's Pastimes.'
জয় ‘গুরু-মহারাজ’

Somebody does service, and somebody is an obstacle to service.
This always happens—it is games of Maya Devi.
