2163) Whether I know only devotional service can attract Krsna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

——————————– The next is: “Pure devotional service is the only means to attract Krsna.” You cannot attract Krsna. Krsna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, with full opulences. So you cannot attract Krsna by your richness, by your reputation, by your education, by your beauty or by your strength or renunciation. No. You cannot attract Krsna by all these things, because He’s already full. You cannot attract by anything, any opulence, Krsna, because He’s atmarama. But if you offer something to Krsna, it is for your benefit. The example is given: just like the original person is decorated, in the mirror the reflection of the person is also decorated. Similarly, if you decorate the Deity gorgeously, you will feel happy. Krsna has many devotees, or many things for being decorated. But if you, in the temple, if you offer Krsna all nice things, all nice flowers, all nice dress, all nice food, everything, everything, all nice, then you will feel happy. That is your interest. ———————
