Krishna is Here
Yahan krsna: wherever Krsna is there. Krsna is absolute. He can be present in His various potencies. He can be present by His name only. Just like we chant Hare Krsna — He is present, because His name is not different from Him. That is the absolute sense. In relative sense… Suppose somebody calling me in my apartment, “Swamiji.” Swamiji is here. The response cannot be. Just like in telephone. Yesterday Raymond was calling us by phone three thousand miles away. As soon as we took the, I mean to say, hanger, we could immediately hear him. If by material ways we can be touch in so swiftly, just see how much spiritual potency has Krsna. Although He’s not present before us, He can be present in so many ways. He can be present by His name. Otherwise, all these great acaryas, Caitanya Mahaprabhu, would not have bothered themselves simply by chanting Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare. There is actually presence of Krsna. If you take any material thing… Suppose a very nice thing, a rose flower. “Rose flower, rose flower, rose flower” — how long you can chant “rose flower”? Say thrice, four times, ten times, twenty times. Any more, you’ll become disgusted. This is the test. But Hare Krsna you can chant twenty-four hours, you’ll not feel tired. That is the test of absolute and relative.
