    We are told: all the devotees of Nabadwip are plunged into viraha-sagar, means – “an ocean of separation”. It was so painful – “piercing the heart”. But piercing the heart and thereby creating a channel for Krishna-prem.

    And it’s mentioned – that crowd – it became millions. How is this possible? And then we come back to this concept of the contraction and expansion of time and space as demonstrated in lila – in Krishna-lila and Gaura-lila – because it’s beyond the parameters of time and space and the world of time and space. Even when it’s brought into this plane – can contradict that. So what appears to be a crowd of thousands or hundreds of thousands… Mysteriously, it’s saying – the word used is the word that indicates “but not observable” – depends on the quality of person. So, in other words, gods and goddesses – they are descending. In some instances, we are told, they’re donning human forms. So, the crowd is swelling. Everyone wants to have a glimpse of the beauty of Mahaprabhu.

    Guru Maharaj says, “Necessity in the absence of fulfillment yields separation.”… That’s why separation is the key to Krishna consciousness.

    Gaura-lila has the added advantage for us of being the magnanimous distribution of Krishna-lila. Krishna-lila being madhurya, Gaura-lila being audarya. Vrindavan in distribution mode – Nabadwip. Krishna-lila in distribution mode – Gaura-lila. And Guru Maharaj said, “The rasa-lila in distribution mode is Mahaprabhu’s nam-sankirtan.”
