1050) Whether I know I need to purify my senses to know Krsna! Taught by Srila Prbhupada!
———— Senses, they taste. But… Just like in, when one is suffering from liver disease, or jaundice, he cannot taste the sugar candy. The sugar candy is sweet, but a jaundiced patient, if he’s given sugar candy, he’ll taste it is bitter. Similarly, our senses being covered with material consciousness, we cannot at the present moment taste what is Krsna’s form, what is Krsna’s name, what is Krsna’s quality, what is Krsna’s pastime, what is Krsna’s paraphernalia, so many things. It is not possible. Atah sri-krsna-namadi na bhaved grahyam indriyaih [Cc. Madhya 17.136]. Our senses are materially contaminated. Therefore we cannot directly perceive by using our present senses what is Krsna. So it has to be purified. —————————————————————-
