Kicked by Krsna
Posted on May 8, 2016
Narottama dasa Thakura says,
Narottama-dasa kaya na theliha ranga-paya: "Your lotus feet, You have got; don't neglect me or push away with Your lotus feet."
I think if Krsna kicks and push away, that is our great fortune. If Krsna kicks with His lotus feet: "You go away," that is also a great fortune. What to speak of accepting? Just like when Krsna was kicking on the hood of the Kaliya. So the Kaliya's wives prayed, "My dear Sir, I do not know, this culprit, Kaliya, how he became so fortunate that his hood is being kicked by You. Your touch of lotus feet, great, great sages, saintly persons are trying to meditate upon millions of years, but this Kaliya... I do not know what did he do in his past life that he's fortunate that his hood is being kicked by You."
