The Nectar of Devotion — Vrndavana, October 30, 1972
1229) Whether I know the real meaning of inferior energy of Krsna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————– In the Bhagavad-gita the living entities have been described as prakrti. Apareyam itas tu vidhi me prakrtim para. After describing the material energies — earth, water, air, fire sky, mind, intelligence, ego — Krsna says apareyam, all these energies, separated energies, material energies, they are apara, inferior. But that is also Krsna’s energies. Inferior means not actually inferior, because they, there cannot be anything inferior which is emanating from Krsna. The inferior in this sense: by our absence of Krsna consciousness. Because we have come here, in this material world, to enjoy to satisfy, sense satisfaction, sense gratification, we have made it inferior. Otherwise it is not inferior. ————————————–
