Story Of Govindadasa Kaviraj And Srinathji Form Of Sri Krishna

God sports with His devotees according to their attitude towards Him. The well-known 16th century saint Govinda Dasa Kaviraja looked upon Bhagavan Srinathji (Sri Krishna) as his friend. Govinda Das (1506-86) was born in Antri, a village near Vrindavan, and in his youth became famous for his knowledge of poetry and music. He was initiated into spiritual life by the great Goswami Vitthalnath in 1536. Pure and highly spiritual from his boyhood, he would go into the forest and spend the greater part of the day in devotional singing. Such was his musical talent that Vitthalnath honoured him with the title kavishwar (‘chief of poets’) and included him among the ashtachap poets. Even Akbar and Tansen used to visit him from time to time in disguise to enjoy his heavenly music. People who knew Govindadas were as much awed by his aloofness and detachment as they were attracted by his knowledge and devotion to God.

Going by the rule of cause and effect, what is found in the effect must be found in the cause too. That leads us to the inference that the ultimate cause of things — Prakriti here — should also be composed of the three elements, pleasure, pain and indifference. These elements are respectively sattva, rajas and tamas. These three strands of Prakriti are inseparable, though distinct. They are shining examples of unity in diversity. Another example given by Sankhya is an oil lamp. Despite being essentially different, oil, wick and flame coexist to form a lamp. Each guna struggles perpetually for preponderance over the other two. That explains the variety in creation. The five basic elements (ether, air, fire, water and ea
