Krishna!

If we look at the form of Krishna, we are enthralled by His beauty and Grace, but there are many secrets here as well!


First off, He is always pictured blue... this doesn't mean that He was blue in colour :) ... blue is the colour of the sky and signifies that like the the sky which has vastness and infinity, Krishna was also vastness and infinity personified.

Then He wears a peacock feather as his crown. Now a crown looks very beautiful, but with all that gold and diamonds and stuff can be very heavy, meaning that to anyone looking at a King or a Queen, they will look wonderful and everyone will want to be like them, but to the King wearing it, it is heavy with responsibility of managing the Kingdom. Though Krishna is the Master of the entire universe, He takes His immense responsibility with the lightness of a feather! And the beauty of the peacock feather can rival the beauty of any ruby and diamond studded crown :)

He is usually depicted standing on one foot, the other a little lifted, as if dancing... One foot on the ground shows complete groundedness, firmly in the material world and you can see that from His life, from extreme mischief as a small child, to flirtatious romances as a youth, marriage to 16000 women :), helping with elopement, playing a major political role in one of the biggest wars, giving the ultimate Knowledge... the list goes on... He lived a very full life, yet the other foot off the ground showed His spiritual side, His mysticism, His depth... No one really knew Him or could even know Him...

You can go through life with both feet on the ground meaning you are only in the material world, and you go through life standing... and there are a few who lift both feet off and fall, try to be only "spiritual"... and a select few perfectly balance both the aspects, and they dance!

Looking at Him you realise you could stand, fall or dance! through life :)...


Radha is his most beloved among all the gopis, but even she is jealous of his flute, coz the flute always stays with him. The flute has seven holes. Enchanting, captivating, bliss inducing music can be played from a flute only if it is hollow and empty.

Our body also has seven chakras... When we become hollow and empty, then Krishna's breath flows through us, and we become an instrument of the Divine... Our words are His words, our actions are His actions. We become pockets of tranquility and bliss. And then we are always with Him. Just like His flute! :)

Hollow and Empty happens effortlessly on Adv courses, and just for everyone's info, the next Adv course for YES!+ is from 10th to 14th September... do come!

Will write about Radha tomorrow... stay tuned! :)

Jai Gurudeva!
love
bawa

ps Guruji has been saying that everyone should read the Bhagawad Geeta at least once! I did and am now quite addicted, its such superb Knowledge, so simple and so deep!

Whow!! A mind blowing way to look at things taught in our culture. I'm always amazed by krishna. Life of one master decoded by another.

SS said...

Lovely knowledge about Krishna, Bau. Yeah the Bhagawad Gita inspires me too in daily life. Whenever some crucial answers elude me, I simply open the Holy Book and the randomly opened page gives me the answer as if guiding me on! Now, the dilema of what to gift someone does'nt trouble me anymore, 'cause whenever I have to, I gift them a miniature Bhagawad Gita (very beautiful and elegant)which never fails to please, besides, people who always dreaded reading it thinking it to be some heavy reading stuff really enjoy reading it and getting inspired from the profound knowledge. Waiting eagerly to know more about Radhaji, I always wondered what my name 'Anuradha' meant. :). Did Radhaji have other names too? Like Lord Krishna? Do enlighten Bau.

Jai Gurudev!

Hi Bau

Once again a beautiful article.
I simply love such explanations which help in understanding the very subtle things (which I never ever thought of earlier) in such a crisp and clear way. Be it Shiva (shhhhhwaaaaa...), Shiva Shakti & Daksha story (on essence of meditation), the secret of elements, Janmashtami or now Krishna.
Keep writing Bau.

Shhhhhhhwaaaaaaaaaaaaa....

Jai Gurudeva

Prakirtee said...

Bawa, all praises to you will never be enough to match your standard! You're amazing... like Krishna's flute I would say..
I was just wondering about something and getting slightly confused about what I should do.. And guess what.. Reading what you wrote somehow gave me a simple and straight solution :)
I've been wanting to read the bhagavad gita since quite some time but I only get the pocket-size book, is that fine or is it possible to get a fuller version?

Monica said...

Hollow and Empty's meaning is THAT Beautiful... !! I mean I'm left speech-less. The most Beautiful thing i've read - the best interpretation...
Hollow And Empty And Krisna's :)
