Krishna – the ‘All Attractive’

105 Krishna all attractive
Krishna explains in Bhagavad-Gita that all beautiful things within this world are but tiny sparks of His beauty. The name ‘Krishna’ means ‘all attractive’, ‘supremely attractive.’ The reason the soul is attracted to things or people of this world is because they are emanating from Krishna, the supremely, all encompassing attractive. One time, our Gurudev Srila Prabhupada was on the beach of the Pacific Ocean.  There, seeing the beautiful sunset, someone said, “Isn’t this a beautiful sunset!” And Srila Prabhupada replied, “If you think that the art is beautiful, you should see the artist! This is just the spark of His beauty.”

    What amazing vision of a pure devotee – “If you think that the art is beautiful, you should see the artist! This is just the spark of his beauty.”

  • srinivas

    We have the tendency to appreciate what is visible to us directly and tend to forget the cause behind it. Maharaj is clearly saying how to look beyond and always to be reminded ourselves about krishna who is behind all this beautiful creation.

    Pure devotees of the Lord are always immersed in devotion & thoughts of the Lord. Hence they can easliy co-relate each & everything back with the Supreme Lord & help us understand the knitty gritty of how this material world & jivas herein behave.

    It is very important to be reminded about creation, creator, beauty, wonder etc., which are buried under huge piles of unnecessary and unnatural information and worries. Radhanath Maharaj is repeatedly teaching about the sublime.

    very true

  • ram mahtani

    Yes, so true. How beautiful must the artist be whose creation is so beautiful.

  • Manish Parmar

    Radhanath Maharaj is so nicely relating the beautiful things of this material world to Krishna. So next time we see something beautiful like the mountains, some panoramic view, the moon, flowers etc – we can easily see the Lord’s hand.

  • Sujit Mehta

    How we take the whole creation for granted, in society if someone does us a favor or gifts us something,we go ga ga about it. But to thank God with heartfelt gratitude doesn’t seem to fit in. Radhanath Swami makes us aware of our shortcoming and way to rectify that, through the example of Srila Prabhupada who’s teachings are timeless jewels

  • Yogita Jagannathan

    We see so many beautiful creations in this world – the butterfly with an assotment of colours on its wings, the peacock displaying its long feathers, the precision with which this cosmic manifestation works, yet we fail to acknowledge the creator behind all this or thank Him for everything He has given us.
