Quotes

“When the deer hear the rava, the sound of Hari’s flute, the fire of divine separation (ra) arises in them and then they are showered with nectar (va). They imbibe the divine rava and are mesmerized. Captivated by the sound, they realize their positions in God’s playground. It draws them close to Krishna and they sit near Him, determined and obsessed like a person who has taken a vow to fast until death. Those deer are like us: totally engaged with Krishna. He glances at them with the same loving mood with which He looks at us! They have attained the Gopis’ devotion!” — Ecstatic Couplets
