Do enlighten souls see Krishna?
Question to His Grace Sankarshan Das Adhikari: While doing Hare Krishna chanting on japa beads, I feel immersed in the name of Lord Krishna and become oblivious to my surroundings. However I feel incomplete that I am only chanting the name of Krishna but not seeing Him. My question as a very low level soul is, "Do enlightened souls see Krishna?" Can you please tell me your experience?
Answer: "They see very minute" Hearing with your ears is another form of seeing. And it is more important than seeing with your eyes. When you see the sun with your eyes it looks like a small disk that you can cover with your thumb. But when you see the sun with your ears by hearing from an authority you can know that it is much, much bigger than the earth.
Therefore by hearing the name Krishna you are already seeing Krishna. Simply you must go deeper and deeper now into meditating on the Hare Krishna mantra with love. The more you develop love for the holy names, the more you will see Krishna, like the enlightened souls who see Krishna at every minute.
All Glories to Krishna Sankritana!
All Glories to Prabhupada!
