"Just like we are sitting in this hall. We are not in our apartment house. Krsna is not like that. He is in the goloka-namni nija-dhamni, in His own planet, He's engaged in His occupation. Somewhere He's tending cows, somewhere He's dancing with the gopis. He is going on with His enjoying occupations. But still He's everywhere. Goloka-namni, goloka eva nivasaty [Bs. 5.37]. Nivasaty means although He's living there, akhilatma bhutah. He's everywhere. He's within your heart. Isvara sarva bhutanam hrd-dese 'rjuna tisthati. He's within your heart. Not only within the heart, He is within the atom also. Eko 'py asau racayitum jagad-anda-kotim yac-chaktir asti jagad-anda caya yad-antah andantara-stha-paramanu-cayantara-stham [Bs. 5.35]. His one plenary portion has entered this material world as Garbhodakasayi Visnu. From Garbhodakasayi Visnu, there is expansion of Ksirodakasayi Visnu. That Ksirodakasayi Visnu has entered every atom. Eko 'py asau racayitum jagad-anda-kotim yac-chaktir asti jagad-anda-caya yad-antah. So Krsna is everywhere, and if you are devotee, then you can catch Him. This is the secret. Just like electricity is everywhere, electrons. One who can tackle the electrons, they can talk without any direct connection by electronic method, thousand thousand miles away. Just like radio message, television message. So similarly, Krsna is also everywhere. Just like the waves of sound wave is going on. As soon as you produce, I produce one sound, immediately within a second the sound goes round the earth seven times. So if a material thing has got so much power, just think how much power God has got. So He is everywhere. Simply you have to catch Him. And He's also ready for being caught. Yes. If somebody wants to catch Him... Suppose you are a devotee. If you want to catch Him, He comes forward ten times than your desire. He's so kind. Therefore, we have to simply receive Him."

(Radha Gokulananda Deity Installation, London, August 21, 1973)
