Thoughts on Sri Krishna Jayanti



There is a Higher Power pulsating in us. It is the light of intelligence. It illuminates the thoughts and feelings in us. The light illuminating all these faculties is one and the same in all. It is represented as Sri Krishna. Krishna is infinite wisdom.

When everybody is sleeping in the prison of his Ego, when the sense organs are all asleep, the mysterious Light shine forth during meditation and in that darkness the Blue Boy of Brindavan is born.

This Supreme Essence born as a mass of Beauty, Music and Joy, dazzling in Wisdom, noisy with Laughter, ever a Master of Circumstances, a King of Events, frisking about in life’s melancholy contentions, meeting challenges with daring and confidence, at once a Hero and a Child all rolled in one – this is the perfect God-Man, the Eternal Child of Brindavan.

Swami Chinmayananda

(Source – Excerpts from one of Swami Chinmayananda’s Sri Krishna Jayanti discourse)

We take refuge in Thee – who art avowed to Truth, who art the Abode of Truth. True in all the three phases of Time (past, present, future), the Source of Truth, the Truth behind the truth (the permanent Reality behind the apparent reality of the World), with Truth and Goodness forming Thy eyes, way, the very Embodiment of Truth.

(Brahma’s praise of the Lord – Bhagavata Purana X-2-26)
