A devotee has faith

 

 

His faith is transmitted actually. It is a matter of transmission offaith. The amount of faith we have in our heart to that extent we will be able to influence our sincere audience, sincere listeners. Andthat's the point the demigods are making here, that transcendentalreality, we have to recognize that beyond this material nature thereis another reality, transcendental reality, spiritual sky, and we haveto see the spiritual sky. And when Krishna comes that spiritual skybecomes manifest. Those who are fortunate they can see it themselves.

But even then when Krishna withdraws His pastimes sadhus are leftbehind who speak about Krishna's transcendental pastimes. The scriptures like Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita they describeKrishna's transcendental pastimes. And just by hearing about those pastimes we develop our faith in Krishna. And what does the sadhu do?He reconfirms our faith. He intensifies our faith. And as a result ofthat bhavanti hrt-karna-rasayanah kathah. [SB 3.25.25]

We develop

taste for this hearing by which our ears and heart becomes completely satisfied and as a result of that we develop our attachment to Krishnawhich causes the cessation of material suffering. And due to thisattachment we develop our love for Krishna.
