Social media is not all junk. Some posts, messages and videos can have such a deep impact on you that these can actually be life transforming experiences.
A friend just sent me a 3 minutes clip where a speaker is speaking about Krishna. It’s not a usual discourse on Bhagvad Gita, but a slightly different take on the lord. He says that your doorbell rings and when you open door , you encounter a well dressed, handsome, soft spoken and very suave person standing there. On being asked who is he, he replies, “ I am Krishna.” You ask him, “ Krishna who?” He replies, “ Vasudeva Krishna, whom you’re worship daily. I have come to be with you 24X7.”
The speaker then goes on to say something very interesting. He dares audience to now tell their customer at their business place that they have not sold this commodity to any one else at a lower price or that if they now go below the price they are quoting, they will end up making a loss, reckoning that Krishna is standing next to them! He also wonders what would be their response to the wives’ query on reaching home late as to why are they late? He says that because truth and reality are so difficult to speak and face, we like to keep the God immobile within photographs and statues for if he comes to live with us, our lives will undergo a transformation, apparently uncomfortable to begin with given our existing milieu, but so straight, peaceful, fearless and happy ultimately. As per the speaker this is the awareness and or more precisely consciousness of Krishna that’s a life changing experience.
He concludes by saying that if you are running late and are not able to stop at your neighbourhood temple to pay your daily obeisance to Krishna, you need not worry that your day will get spoilt if your are conscious of the fact that Krishna is with you 24X7. He says having consciousness of being with Krishna will repel all fears, worries, apprehensions, vices and doubts. It will be like being in Lord’s company perpetually.
