Ramakrishna: The Nectar of Eternal Bliss, Ch. 2: Krishna in My Heart
Class 5, Ch. 2, p.54
Video Segment 13:42-16:50
If you are attracted to Godliness, that is called love. The Gopis had so much attraction for Krishna. Listen to a song:
Radha says, “Krishna is playing His flute.
It just can’t be that I don’t go. He’s standing in the path.
Hey, are you guys going to go or not?
You talk about Krishna just from your mouths.
The Krishna that resides within me
creates so much pain in my heart
that I remember Him all the time.
He’s playing the flute only in your ears,
but I’m listening to that flute in my heart.”
She says to all the Gopis, to all her friends,
“You’re listening to Krishna’s flute only with your ears!”
He’s playing the flute inside my heart.
You girls make a fence around Krishna and his radiance will grow and grow.
Ramakrishna to Keshab: Whether you accept Radha and Krishna or not, whether you believe in Them, let Their pure love and attraction for each other settle in your heart. You must express sincerity in your love of God. If you have sincerity, then you can get Godliness.
