Janmastami Observance by Hearing Krishna's lila: Akrura’s Arrival in Vrindavana

Photobucket

Bhakti-yoga or Krishna consciousness means quite simply being conscious of Krishna. When we love someone we naturally think of them, so when we love Krishna it is natural to think of him and want to hear or read about his lila or divine activities. Those of us who want to love Krishna—or even believe in him if we are new—will make progress in knowing and loving Krishna by reading about his pastimes in the Shrimad Bhagavatam or in Shrila Prabhupada’s Krishna book which is the summary of the 10th Canto. We are advised to read with the desire to understand and in the mood of service, humility and reverence--at least with that ideal in mind.

Making the Holy Name Something We Can't Live Without

Krishna close up
As we know
life depends
externally on eating
breathing, sleeping and
work to maintain our body--
in the same way
let's be determined,
first by hearing to
establishing a habit
of chanting and serving,
then conviction
coming to the point
of urgent necessity
to chant and sing
the holy names,
serving the Lord
with his devotees
to purify our
consciousness
waking us up
from ignorance,
ultimately to please
the real Lord
of our heart--
our very life or
the heart of
our hearts,
soul of our soul.
