EXTREME BLISS OF LOVE

Updated on September 13, 2011


Closer relationship to lord krishn reveals more Bliss of love.

Vrindaban is a place (in India) of Divine dualistic experience of non-dual Divine love existence. It is the manifestation of absolute Divine love power, where the Beloved of the Gopis (associates), Krishn, always exhilarates their feelings with His leelas (plays). To give them utmost Bliss, He awakens the desire of meeting in their hearts. He develops that feeling by giving them separation, and He Himself fulfills their desire by giving them the Bliss of meeting. In doing so, He also experiences happiness, because he Divine love power is the same in both the hearts.

So both Krishn and the Gopi (or any of His associates) enjoy the same degree of Bliss in every playful act. Closer relationship reveals greater Bliss of love. For this reason, Ved Vyas has written in the Vedant Darshan,

"The enjoyment of a Associate and God is equal."


The Class

In this way, Krishn is the enjoyer of His own love as well as the giver of His love to the Gopis. So, in scriptures, both the titles of atmaram and kripalu (the One who is ever willing to Grace) are used for Krishn.

In Divine Vrindaban, Gopis (associates) have different natures and likings. Moreover, their personal closeness to Krishn and their desires and wishes also differ. Therefore, Krishn's ways of play with different groups of Gopis also differ; and, in every group, the different natures and behavior of various Gopis add a new charm to the Divine leelas (plays).

In the devotional period, it happens that every Krishn devotee has his own form of kinship with Krishn which corresponds to his personal likings and nature. Apart from this, the Divine status of his Master also varies because of the particular group of Gopis (in Divine Vrindaban) to which He belongs, so when a devotee receives Divine love, he joins the same class or group of Gopis in Divine Vrindaban to which his Master belongs, and the mode of his love is shaped according to his previous personal likings and nature.


Behavioural Style

Although Divine love, in its original nature of ever-increasing ness and playfulness, is the same in the heart of every associate (who has received gopi bhao), the behavior of each individual associate in the leelas (play) differs according to his personal nature. This is because Krishn's Grace Divinates the devotional feelings of the devotee accordingly. That is why the same love takes different shapes (just as sweet paste takes the shape of that mold into which it is cast) and it appears in various styles of love among the Gopis (associates). These different manifestations of Divine love are found in the Divine leelas (play) of Vrindaban (abode).


The Facets of Divine Love

The soul is the natural servant of God (happiness)., and so every associates serves her Beloved Krishn according to her own mode of love. Thus, countless Gopis (associates) with their countless ways of love, beautify the beauty of love in Divine Vrindaban, where every play, every desire and every activity is just a different facet of Divine love.

All classes of Gopis (the associates of Krishn) realize the inexpressible perfection of Divine love Bliss in accordance with their relation and closeness with Krishn. The specific type of love that exists in the heart of a Gopi (or any other associate of Krishn) inspires a similar feeling in the heart of her Beloved. Thus, according to the different natures of the Gopis, Krishn's playful acts differ, and according to their personal closeness to Kristin, their realization of Divine love also differs. (Closeness means how close a person is to the heart of his Divine Beloved or how much relational affinity he experiences with Krishn.)

Krishn Himself is the original form of Divine love, so the more the closeness, the more is the realization of the beauty and love of Krishn and greater is the knowledge of the virtues and the kindness of Krishn. The closest relationship reveals the closest form of the charm of Krishn's love and beauty. This is the reason why in different relational stages the experience of the sweetness of love and beauty differs.


Fraternal Relationship

The fraternal relationship reveals a sweeter experience of Krishn's love than the relationship of servitude, because it is closer. The maternal relation is still closer, so the charm of this love is greater than that of the other two. The Gopis' relation is the closest as compared with the others; so it unveils the greatest beauty of Kristin and the sweetest experience of Divine love, and accordingly, the deepest knowledge of Krishn's greatness.

That is why, when Uddhao (the fast friend of krishn, who was a gyani) came to Braj as a messenger of Krishn, the Gopis said, "O Uddhao! You know nothing about Krishn, only we know what He is."

      moneycop,

      Greetings from MAKUSR. As a fellow Indian I am Very Happy that you chose to enlighten the whole world about the true love. Rama is all about virtues. Krishna is a Divine with all the human weaknesses and the way to surmount them if the need be. Eternal bliss and ultimate love has meanings only when we know of Sri Krishna. You've done an excellent work. MAKUSR thanks you and bows to Sri Krishna in your hub. Jai Sri Krishna.

      Lots of Love,

      MAKUSR(Manoj)

      yes...Sueswan..thats the science of divine love..and no one can read our feeling and emotion each second ..so ony GOD can love us in this way and we would not get opposite or hurting. Even we will be exited to have this up and down again and again..as our caretaker is GOD himself..

      thanks ...

      Hi moneycop

      Beautiful and devine.

      "Krishn, always exhilarates their feelings with His leelas (plays). To give them utmost Bliss, He awakens the desire of meeting in their hearts. He develops that feeling by giving them separation, and He Himself fulfills their desire by giving them the Bliss of meeting. In doing so, He also experiences happiness, because he Divine love power is the same in both the hearts."

      Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Not too much absence because then it can have the opposite effect.

      Voted up and awesome.
