Illusion fails to get hold of him who remains deeply absorbed in Sri Krishna’s Name and love.

There is nothing higher than Sri Krishna’s name. The object of man’s life is to adore Sri Krishna. Forgetting this, he allows himself to be fettered by his actions.

 

'When a man forgets that he is an all-time Chartered servant of God, Matter, the mother of illusion, drawing round his neck tightens her cord’

 

Mother! Forgetting Sri Krishna, men become slaves of illusion forever. Hence, I say, do not forget him. The means by which Sri Krishna can be reached is to take His name and to remain saturated in it. O mother, one who gets immersed in very cold water, the scorching rays of sun cannot effect in the least. Although those on land give vent to distressful wailings, the intense heat of sun cannot do anything to the man under water. Similarly, Illusion, notwithstanding all her efforts, fails to get hold of him who remains deeply absorbed in Sri Krishna’s Name and love.

 

I do not know of anything efficacious without Sri Krishna’s Name; that is why I beg of you to have always recourse to it. Name, taken constantly, culminates in love for him, which in time leads to the beloved Krishna.
