Sri Sri Radha Vrindaban Chandra
New Vrindaban, West Virginia
"Krishna is so beautiful, nobody can surpass Him. Kandarpa-koti-kamaniya-visesa-sobham. Although He is blackish, but He is so beautiful, He enchants the most beautiful -- Radharani. So aisvaryasya samagrasya viryasya yasasah sriyah. Sri means beauty. He is so beautiful. Therefore His name is Krishna. On account of His beauty, He attracts everyone. Beauty attracts. So nobody can be more beautiful than Krishna. Aisvaryasya yasasah sriyah, and jnana. Not only He is beautiful... just like a flower, very beautiful to see, but if no good smell, no aroma... useless. So Krishna is not only beautiful, but He is the most wise. He spoke Bhagavad-gita. Five thousand years ago He spoke. Still big, big scholars, religionists, philosophers, they are studying. This is called jnana. Aisvaryasya samagrasya viryasya yasasah sriyah, jnana and vairagya. Vairagya means renouncement. So Krishna claims that He is the proprietor of all the planets, but if you think, "Where is Krishna? Let me find out. He is the proprietor." Oh, that you cannot find out. Vairagya. Although He is the proprietor of all the planets, you won't find Him within this material world, although His authority is going on. Just like the president of your country is not to be seen everywhere, but his authority is going on. Mat-sthani sarva-bhutani naham tesu avasthitah. Everything is situated on Krishna's opulence, but not that you will find Krishna there. You will find Krishna there when you are advanced. Otherwise you will not find. Mat-sthani sarva-bhutani naham tesu avasthitah. Krishna is situated in everything, but still you cannot see Krishna unless you have got eyes to see. That is Krishna consciousness movement, to give you the eyes to see Krishna everywhere. So how this thing can be done? So if you are serious, then you can see Krishna."
(Srila Prabhupada lecture, October 27, 1975)
