Where is Krishna?

Submitted by on January 4, 2018 – 12:33 amNo Comment

By Srila B.R. Sridhar Dev Goswami Maharaj, excerpted from Sermons of the Guardian of Devotion, Volume Four.

He is always with you, but still, He is not with you at all. He is always in the background and He is not in the positive foreground. I cannot find Him because finding is of infinite character. He is infinite and my position is very meager, so I can never be satisfied.

He is with me in the background as the infinite character, but I only have my meager conception therefore just how much can I get of Him? But I know the fact that He is bigger and bigger whereas I am finer and finer. So satisfaction and dissatisfaction are both contained. The infinite character is in the background and the finite character is before me. Because I have got small existence, how can I take part of Him? What I can have in my possession of Him, that is very meager. So many others are also there, holding higher positions.
