That is Vrndavana
Posted on November 10, 2015
There are living entities who are eternally conditioned and there are living entities eternally liberated. The eternally liberated souls, living entities, they are with Krsna, they're dancing with Krsna, because they have no other desire than to satisfy Krsna. That is the difference between eternally conditioned and eternally liberated. Eternally liberated means they have no other desire. All these gopis, all the cowherds boys, all the cows, all the trees, all the water, all the father, mother, friends, they're simply trying to satisfy Krsna. That is Vrndavana. They have no other business. That is Vrndavana. The central point is Krsna. And here, in this material world, everyone is trying to satisfy himself. His center is he himself. Therefore he's exploiting others, he's cheating others, he's making so many things, bluffing, because he wants to enjoy himself. That's all. This is the difference between spiritual world and material world. If you want to satisfy yourself, your senses, that is material. And if you want to satisfy Krsna, Krsna's senses, then it is spiritual. This is the difference. So either do it here or go to Vaikuntha, Goloka, do there -- the business is the same.
