Smart Quote of the Day, March 5, 2016

Complexity: 
Easy

". . . You cannot say, "I am committing this sin, but no one can see me." Krishna is the supreme witness sitting within your heart. He notes down what you are thinking and what you are doing."

Today's Smart Quote is from the Science of Self Realization, Chapter Seven, in the section entitled, "Saintly Compassion"

People do not believe in a next life, because they want to avoid this botheration. But we cannot avoid it. We must act according to the law, or we will be punished. Similarly, I cannot avoid God's law. That is not possible. I can cheat others, commit theft, and hide myself, thereby saving myself from the punishment of the state law, but I cannot save myself from the superior law, the law of nature. It is very difficult. There are so many witnesses. The daylight is witness, the moonlight is witness, and Krishna is the supreme witness. You cannot say, "I am committing this sin, but no one can see me."

Krishna is the supreme witness sitting within your heart. He notes down what you are thinking and what you are doing. He also gives facility. If you want to do something to satisfy your senses, Krishna gives the facility for that action. That is stated in the Bhagavad-gita. Sarvasya caham hridi sannivishtah: "I am sitting in everyone's heart." Mattah smritir jnanam apohanam ca: [Bg. 15.15] "From Me come remembrance, knowledge, and forgetfulness."
