My latest piece is of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur. One of our biggest inspirations and leaders in the Krishna Consciousness Movement. He is known for his bold strategy in spreading the science of Bhakti and has an extremely deep understanding of what it truly means to be a servant of God. He is also the Guru of our Founder Acarya A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Over the past two weeks I have really been realizing how rare it is to build a God centered relationship with another person and if given that opportunity, we should take full advantage, regardless of any external difficulties that may take place in our dealings. Relationships require a deep degree of understanding our own personal faults before making an attempt to place them on our loved ones. Communication is key for growth and keep the main thing the main thing! Krishna!
Prabhupada writes in his Srimad Bhagavatam Purport 1.15.31: "Doubts of duality begin from the misconception of the material body, which is accepted as the self by less intelligent persons. The most foolish part of our ignorance is our identifying this material body with the self. Everything in relation with the body is ignorantly accepted as our own. Doubts due to misconceptions of "myself" and "mine"—in other words, "my body," "my relatives," "my property," "my wife," "my children," "my wealth," "my country," "my community," and hundreds and thousands of similar illusory contemplations—cause bewilderment for the conditioned soul. By assimilating the instructions of the Bhagavad-gītā, one is sure to be released from such bewilderment because real knowledge is knowledge that the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vāsudeva, Lord Kṛṣṇa, is everything, including one's self. Everything is a manifestation of His potency as part and parcel. The potency and the potent are nondifferent, so the conception of duality is at once mitigated by attainment of perfect knowledge." #krishna #bhakti #artistsoninstagram #vaisnava #guru #teachersofinstagram #teacher #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #mindfulness
