Quotes

Brahma cannot even follow Krishna’s Gopa cow lads, for they are not a subject of his Vedas. Omniscient Krishna knows all about their wanderings; He sees exactly what they are up to and protects their divine senses. The Vrindavan lila arises in a sphere beyond Brahma’s grasp and jurisdiction. Shiva, Brahma, and Indra reign over past, present, and future as well as over morning, midday, and afternoon, but what can they understand the Sri Krishna’s lila, as it occurs during immeasurable time? Even Mother Yashoda, the best of women, cannot fathom it. — transl. by Shyamdas, Ecstatic Couplets
