2508) Whether I know why to go to Vrndavana! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————– But if we take shelter of the internal energy of Krsna, Radharani, because She’s directly serving Krsna… Just like in Vrndavana, they always speak of Radharani because they have taken shelter of Radharani to approach Krsna very easily. Daivim prakrtim asritah. The facility of Vrndavana is that you take shelter of Radharani directly and She will help you to approach Krsna very soon. This is the idea of coming to Vrndavana.  ————–

2507) Whether I know by approaching energy of Krsna, one can’t approach Krsna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———— Similarly, brahmeti paramatmeti bhagavan iti sabdyate [SB 1.2.11]. To approach the impersonal feature of Brahman is not sufficient. We have to approach Krsna. So the Radharani, the personal,… His energy’s also personal. So mahatmanas tu mam partha daivim prakrtim asritah [Bg. 9.13]. If we take shelter of His external energy, where forgetfulness of Krsna is very prominent, then we become far and far away from Krsna.  ——–—–

————- Just like the sun-god, he’s a person, but his energy, sunshine and heat, that is impersonal. To reach impersonal feature of the sun or the sunshine is not approaching the sun. It is approaching and not approaching. It is approaching in the sense that directly in touch with his energy, but still, the sun globe and the sun-god is far away.  ——-——

————— So similarly, although Krsna is far, far away from us… Goloka eva nivasati. He’s residing in His abode, Goloka, Vrndavana. This is the replica of that Vrndavana. So akhilatma-bhutah. How He’s akhilatma-bhutah [Bs. 5.37]? How He’s all-pervading? By His energy. By His energy. Just like Krsna says in the Bhagavad-gita: maya tatam idam sarvam jagat avyakta-murtina [Bg. 9.4]. That energy is avyakta, impersonal. But Krsna is not impersonal. Krsna is person.  —————–

——-——- Parasya saktir vividhaiva sruyate, svabhavaki-jnana-bala-kriya ca [Cc. Madhya 13.65, purport]. That is the Vedic version, that the Supreme Absolute Truth has got multi-energies, and by utilizing, manipulating that energy, He is manifesting Himself in so many ways. The same example: just like the sun, by expanding its energy, heat and light, is perceived. The sun is ninety-three million miles away from us. So how we can understand the sun? By his heat and energy. By his heat, we can calculate what is the actual temperature. The scientists are calculating the actual temperature of the sun.  ——–———–

————- Radha-krsna…, that Caitanya Mahaprabhu is… That is the version of Sri Svarupa Damodara, that “Radha and Krsna, They are one, Krsna.” When Krsna wants to enjoy, He manifests His energy. That is Radharani.  Krsna cannot enjoy the material energy; He enjoys the internal energy. Krsna has got many energies.  ————

2502) Whether I know who Radharani is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————– The internal energy of Krsna, it has got three different functions. One of the function is hladini sakti. That is Radharani. That is Radharani. Radharani is the pleasure potency of Krsna.
radha krsna-pranaya-vikrtir hladini saktir asmad
ekatmanav api (bhuvi pura) deha-bhedam gatau tau
sri-caitanyakhyam prakatam adhuna tad-dvayam caikyam aptam…  [Cc. Adi 1.5]  —————-
