“The Complete Science of Bhakti-Yoga #11”
2325) Whether I know the pure devotional service is like a forest fire! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————- The example is being given in this connection that when there is a forest fire, the extensive blazing automatically kills all the snakes in the forest. There are many, many snakes on the ground of the forest, and when a fire takes place, it burns the dried foliage, and the snakes are immediately attacked. Animals who have four legs can flee from the fire or can at least try to flee, but the snakes are immediately killed. Similarly, the blazing fire of Krsna consciousness is so strong that the snakes of ignorance are immediately killed.”
Prabhupada: Go on.
Pradyumna: ” ‘Krsna Consciousness is All-Auspicious.’ Srila Rupa Gosvami has given a definition of auspiciousness.” ———————
