Balarama praises Krsna

Posted on August 12, 2011

Filed under BVKS Sanga



“What is the value of a throne to Lord Krsna? The masters of the various

planetary systems accept the dust of His lotus feet on their crowned heads.

That dust makes the holy places sacred, and even Lord Brahma, Lord Siva,

Laksmi and I Myself, who are all portions of His plenary portion, eternally

carry that dust on our heads.”



When the Kauravas, to flatter Baladeva so that He would become their…

Thought Of The Day

So there are different varieties of planets. That is God's creation. This is also God's creation, that is also God's creation, but I cannot go there. Land is God's creation, water is God's creation, but you cannot live in the water, and the fish cannot live on the land. Similarly, although there are millions and trillions of planets within this universe, you have to live in that particular planet where you are destined to live. That is condition. You cannot go to the sun planet or moon…
