Real Beauty

His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad

Sri Nabadwip Dham, India

[His Divine Grace's phone rings.]

—Nice ringtone.

It is sound... People are attracted to dyuti (splendour), rupa (form), rasa (taste), gandha (scent), sabda (sound), sparsa (tactile experience), but you will get everything—great beauty, great enjoyment, and so on—in Goloka Vrindavan. Rupa Goswami writes about this in his Vidagda-Madhava. These are very high level things.

In the material life, when a husband and a wife live together and have their conjugal life, they do some enjoyment for five-ten minutes, but you will get that kind of enjoyment eternally in Goloka Vrindavan.

In this material world we always run after beauty, smell, sound, and so on (just as you have said now, "Very good sound"), but if you see Krishna's beauty, you will forget everything. Even Lord Siva ran away leaving Parvati when Krishna showed His beauty.

Lord Siva is a big sadhu, he has big jata (dreadlocks), a big-big beard, a snake, but when Krishna became a beautiful woman and was playing with a ball in His hands, juggling it, "Ping-pong, ping-pong", Lord Siva became attracted by Her. The girl started running, and Lord Siva ran after Her. Parvati tried to stop him, "I am your wife! I am your actual wife! Why you are running after that girl?" But Lord Siva only brushed her off. He ran after the girl and, when he finally embraced Her, the girl became Lord Krishna—this is Hari-Hara. We tell this story at the Hari-Hara ksetra when we do Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama.

So, even Lord Siva cannot control himself...

 


Sri Hari-Hara Deity.

Mahadvadasi
'Mahadvadasi means two tithis (lunar days) coincide on one day. Ekadasi is auspicious, and mahadvadasi is even more auspicious, that is why we observe it. You can fast more, but if you fast and sleep all day and do not do any service, it is not good.'

 

Ki-rupe paiba seva
'Prabhu, you see no fault in others, you are the saviour of the fallen. Please deliver Narottam this time!'
কিরূপে পাইব সেবা

My mind, my heart do not want to go outside the temple, but what can I do? For service to the Lord I have to go outside, but I do not like that outside world any more, I cannot tolerate it.
