The Holy Appearance Day of
His Divine Grace
Śrīla A.C. Bhaktivedānta Swami Prabhupāda Mahārāja
When Nanda Maharaja is observing a great festival for the appearance day of his beloved son, Śrī Kṛṣṇa, that very day Kṛṣṇa’s very dear devotee, very intimate devotee, His own man, has appeared.
What is the necessity of the Vaiṣṇavas coming here? Sādhu-vaiṣṇavas, Kṛṣṇa’s own men are always with Kṛṣṇa in that sat-cid-ānanda-maya-dhāma. Those who have attained Kṛṣṇa, only see kṛṣṇa-sambandha, the relationship with Kṛṣṇa. They see how everyone, everything, every object is related to Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa is the only relationship. Kṛṣṇa nitya-sambandha — every jīva has a perfect, eternal, loving relationship with Kṛṣṇa. A completely Kṛṣṇa conscious person has this vision. For that premi-bhakta Kṛṣṇa is his most beloved and Kṛṣṇa is his object of love. Kṛṣṇa prāṇanātha — Kṛṣṇa is the Lord of his heart. The premi-bhakta, Vaiṣṇava sees that everything, every jīva is related to Kṛṣṇa in this loving relationship. Therefore how can he tolerate the suffering of Kṛṣṇa’s jīva? His heart bleeds seeing the jīvas who are suffering because of their forgetfulness of Kṛṣṇa and forgetfulness of their relationship with Him. They are bereft of Kṛṣṇa consciousness therefore they are suffering. This is the only cause. Sādhu Vaiṣṇava knows the cause very well. If they will develop Kṛṣṇa consciousness, that lost consciousness and become completely Kṛṣṇa conscious, then there will be no more suffering. They will go back home to Godhead.
