Aroma of saffron dust from Krsna’s lotus feetPosted on October 8, 2011Filed under BVKS SangaSrimad-Bhagavatam 4.20.25, spoken by Prthu MaharajaMy dear Lord, You are glorified by the selected verses uttered by greatpersonalities. Such glorification of Your lotus feet is just like saffronparticles. When the transcendental vibration from the mouths of greatdevotees carries the aroma of the saffron dust of Your lotus feet, theforgetful living entity gradually remembers his eternal relationship withYou. Devotees thus gradually come to the right conclusion about the value oflife. My dear Lord, I therefore do not need any other benediction but theopportunity to hear from the mouth of Your pure devotee.[from Srila Prabhupada's purport:]A pure devotee always engages in the service of the Lord, taking shelter ofHis lotus feet, and therefore he has a direct connection with the saffronmercy-particles that are strewn over the lotus feet of the Lord. Althoughwhen a pure devotee speaks the articulation of his voice may resemble thesound of this material sky, the voice is spiritually very powerful becauseit touches the particles of saffron dust on the lotus feet of the Lord. Assoon as a sleeping living entity hears the powerful voice emanating from themouth of a pure devotee, he immediately remembers his eternal relationshipwith the Lord, although up until that moment he had forgotten everything.
