Bhagavad-gita As It Is Lectures

That sun is ninety millions miles or something like that, away from us. But it is within your room. Otherwise how you say, "Oh, sunlight is here."? So if sun can penetrate within your room, cannot Kṛṣṇa penetrate within your heart and room and every corner? He is so useless? He's everywhere, but you have to realize, how He is everywhere.
If the Sun Can Penetrate Within Your Room, Kṛṣṇa Can Penetrate Within Your Heart
- Prabhupāda 0666


Lecture on BG 6.13-15 -- Los Angeles, February 16, 1969:

Tamal Krishna: "The kingdom of God is everywhere, but the spiritual sky and the planets thereof are called paraṁ dhāma, or superior abode…"

Prabhupāda: Yes. This material world is also God’s creation. This is also God’s kingdom, but because we have forgotten God, we have made "God is dead", therefore it has become hell. But if we accept God, oh, it becomes spiritual world. Automatically. Therefore this temple is spiritual world, it is not material world. It is above the material world. Go on.

Tamal Krishna: "A consummate yogi who is perfect in understanding Lord Kṛṣṇa as is clearly stated herein by the Lord Himself, can obtain real peace and can ultimately reach the Supreme Abode, the Kṛṣṇaloka known as Goloka Vṛndāvana. In the Brahma-saṁhitā it is clearly stated that the Lord, although He resides always in His abode called Goloka, is the all-pervading Brahman and the localized Paramātmā as well."

Prabhupāda: Yes. If you think that if Kṛṣṇa is in His abode, Goloka Vṛndāvana, then how you think that in your temple there is Kṛṣṇa? No. In the Brahma-saṁhitā says - therefore we require to hear from the authorized mother. The Brahma-saṁhitā says: goloka eva nivasaty akhilātma-bhūtaḥ (BS 5.37). Although He is living in His abode, Goloka Vṛndāvana, He is everywhere. He's everywhere. Just, the same example can be used. That sun is ninety millions miles or something like that, away from us. But it is within your room. Otherwise how you say, "Oh, sunlight is here."? So if sun can penetrate within your room, cannot Kṛṣṇa penetrate within your heart and room and every corner? He is so useless? He’s everywhere, but you have to realize, how He is everywhere. Go on.

Tamal Krishna: "Nobody can reach the spiritual sky, or enter into the eternal abode of the Lord, without the proper understanding of Kṛṣṇa, and His plenary expansion, Viṣṇu. Therefore a person working in Kṛṣṇa consciousness is the perfect yogi because his mind is always absorbed in Kṛṣṇa's activities. In the Vedas also we learn, 'One can overcome the path of birth and death only by understanding the Supreme Personality of Godhead.' In other words, the perfection of the yoga system is the attainment of freedom from material existence and not some magical jugglery or gymnastic feat to befool innocent people."

Prabhupāda: Thank you, that's all. (end)
