You will see Krsna, in the way that He advises

Русский перевод

Don't try to see Krsna in your own way; then you will never find Him. Why do you say, "We have not seen God," when God is represented in so many ways? You take God's advice and try to see Him as He advises, and then you'll see God. That's a fact. I do not understand — why do they say, "We have not seen God"? You are always seeing God. You are seeing the sunlight, you are seeing the moonlight, you are smelling the good fragrance of a flower. If you are a scholar you are reading the Vedas: pranavah sarva-vedesu — "In the Vedic mantras, "Krsna says, "I am the sound of om." And paurusam nrsu: any wonderful, intelligent work somebody has done — that is Krsna.

So you have to see Krsna in this way, as Krsna advises. Then very soon you will see Krsna. There is no question of not seeing Him. You will see in every moment, premanjana-cchurita-bhakti-vilocanena santah sadaiva, twenty-four hours. Those who are actually Krsna devotees, they are seeing Krsna. They are seeing nothing but Krsna. There is no question of not seeing Him, but you have to adopt the method how to see Him. And that is given there. You adopt it, and you will see Krsna. Where is the difficulty?"

[Srila Prabhupada, Lecture, Bhagavad-gita As It Is 16.8, Tokyo, 28 January, 1975]
