2045) Whether I know I will not approach Krsna if I do sinful activities! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————- Pradyumna: “For example, great demons like Rävana, Kamsa and Hiranyakasipu were always thinking of Krsna, but they were thinking of Him as their enemy. This sort of thinking cannot be accepted as bhakti, or Krsna consciousness.”
Prabhupäda: Yes. As Rävana and Kamsa was thinking of Krsna as enemy, similarly, if we think of Krsna that “He’ll wash my sinful activities,” that means you are thinking like Rävana and Kamsa. Krsna should be thought favorably. Änukülyena krsnänusilanam. Na prätikülyena. No. You cannot think of Krsna and commit sinful life at the same time. That is prätiküla. Krsna does not want that you shall remain sinful, because you cannot approach Krsna without being free from sinful activities. ——————————————–
