THE DIVINE COUPLE: supreme form of love
God is ever treated as a mode of blessing and accomplishment of our wishes, followed by our prayers. To be a devotee or a disciple of God is always a mystery for common man. As we all have some fixed perceptions in mind that the love we achieve and have in world, may not be done with God. We fear to fall in sin if we think kissing or smooching God. So we pray for our desires and desire love from world. What we always long for is only happiness yet we don't ask for it. We make happiness as our care off any desire to fulfill. But being absolute bliss and form of supreme love is always ready to accept any kind of relation you want to make with him. Even the feeling of enemy and fear also is gaining divinity when relates to GOD
We all live in dividing world,
Saying mine and yours in every word,
Still we are served alike,
When feeling of love and thirst do strike.
Many religions had divided human civilization since centuries. And we all live dividing ourselves within caste, color, status, religion, etc. Still the feeling of love is same in all. Still the feeling of thirst and hunger are alike.
God always cares for us mainly in terms of happiness. He serves through world the smiles for all. But when world is not enough for some chicks.He himself descends to grace us. Weather its any form in any religion.
We are Christian, so he is Jesus,
We are Muslim, so Allah he is,
We are Hindu, so he is Ram and Krishn,
We are divided, but he is same ever and in.
Otherwise, he is the only father who pours nectar of love on us and in return only wants loving thanks from all. To teach and to pour the divine form of happiness, he had descended numerous times. A form of god which is known as Divine lovers or Divine couple is the form of RadhaKrishn.
And as we all always attracted to our sensual subjects, to become a devotee to God in this world becomes difficult. So he had descended in this form, giving us an ease to focus mind and soul in divinity and achieve absolute happiness in form of Divine love.
STAGES OF DIVINE LOVE
(1) The first one is the non-dualistic state of Divine knowledge. In this class there is no experience of Blissfulness. As long as the Gyan yogi remains in this world, he feels an absolute peace filled with an unlimited happiness of an unknown identity. His Bliss is like that of a young woman who is kept completely aloof from sexual knowledge and the company of men. Still, she feels a sweet excitement for something in herself, but for what, she knows not.
(2) The second state is called shant bhao(modest relation). The worshipers realize the Bliss of Divine vision of their worshiped forms of God, but there is no personal closeness, so they do not enjoy the Bliss of a personal relationship with God. At this stage, there is a feeling of distant relationship, just like the relation of a subject to his sovereign. He can neither enter into the direct service of God, nor can he see or enjoy His playful acts.
(3) The third state is Divine love (prema bhakti),which appears mainly in four forms of normal, close, closer and closest relationships with Krishn. The Bliss of Divine love in these four classes excels all other Divine Bliss, and the beauty of Krishn exceeds the charm of all other Divine beauties.
In the material world, for higher attainments, you have to sacrifice more and work harder, but in the Divine world, every state is attainable with the same amount of devotion and surrender. So, why not choose the best one? It is a wise decision to aim for Divine love.
The nature of Divine love
Sage Narad says, in Narad Bhakti Sutra that the love is Divine, it is selfless, and is ever-increasing in its ever new beauty.It is the nature of Divine love that it is ever new and ever-increasing, and the experiences of its ever newness and ever-increasingness are multiplied by the playful activities of Radha Krishn.
Ever newness can be understood as thus, in the material world, normally, a new appearance is new for one glance; at the second glance its newness disappears, because one has already seen it. One feels, "Oh, I have seen that before." When a new movie comes out, people become crazy about it, but after seeing it once, it becomes old. This is the reason why our eyes are always in search of something new.
Exactly opposite is the experience of Divine love. A Saint who is looking at a leela(paly)of Krishn realizes an ever new beauty with every glance, so the charm of the view always remains new.
Ever-increasing ness can be understood thus, a mother is waiting for her only son who is coming to see her after many years. The moment he comes, the mother runs and kisses him. She feels happiness, but this happiness is every moment decreasing. The first sight and touch of her son gives her more pleasure, the second one gives less pleasure, and every moment the experience of pleasure goes on decreasing. After a few hours her emotional excitement becomes normal, and now she says him go and play. In the same way, every enjoyment in the world gives a decreasing pleasure, because it is the longing for that object which appears in the form of pleasure, not the object itself.
Exactly opposite is the experience of Divine love because Divine objects are the embodiments of Divine love itself (with its nature of ever-increasing ness), and so they give the experience of' increased Bliss every moment.
Mono-dualistic form of Divine love.
Every action in the world is done in a dualistic state, whereas the leelas of Radha Krishn are enacted in the Divine love non-dualistic slate. Thus, it is difficult for a worldly person to understand this kind of love and leela-play. How does it happen? It is the miraculous work that it transforms the non-dualistic slake.
Krishn Himself is the full-bloomed Form of Divine love and the love of the Gopis, their desires, their playful acts and their meetings with Krishn are Divine love manifestations in their various forms. In this way, every Divine love manifestation is substantially a form of Krishn Himself, because He Himself is Divine love. For this reason, the Bhagwatam says that Krishn played with His own `form,' and this mono-dualistic play of rds was made possible through yogmaya, just as a mirror multiplies a person's own image. Thus,
(a) Gopis the associates are one with Krishn; they are never separate, yet they realize the Bliss of meeting with Krishn; and,
(b) Krishn plays with His own `self' (that is why He is called atmaram, which means the one who is contented in his own self), yet He imparts Bliss and love to His associates (Gopis). It is the surprising splendor of yogmaya (the absolute power of god).That makes it all possible.
In the absolute non-dualistic state, no experience is possible, and in the dualistic state (the world), there is a perpetual experience of discontent. So it is only in the mono-dualistic state that perfect Bliss can be experienced.
HOW RADHA KRISHN POUR LOVE - playfullness
Every affectionate play depends upon its corresponding desire, and the mode of action depends upon the feeling of being far or close to the Beloved. This feeling is called virah or milan, which means `feeling of separation' or `feeling of meeting' respectively. It appears in the heart of a lover in many forms and at different stages of relational intimacy with Beloved RadhaKrishn.
Radha and Krishn, Both are lovers and Both are beloveds of each other. So, Their own love towards each other, on its own base, takes the form of desire, virah or milan in Their hearts.
Radha and Krishn both over-joyously swinging and smiling while looking to eachother. Sometimes they look into the eyes of each other and talk through the motion of their eyes without using a word. An accociate says that how lucky is that tree of kadamb and how lucky is the branch is making our beloved form of God, Radha and Krishn swing by holding the loop of the rope of the swing on its neck. The swing is made very close to the river Yamuna. When it moves towards the water of Yamuna, their hearts tickle to see the reflection of each other in the water. The associate says, that we simply adore this vision of soul-delighting swinging play of Radha Krishn
Radha goes sulk silently because of Krishna's mischief's. And Krishna is seriously feared of the sad mood of Radha. Krishn can't see Radha not smiling or is a sad mood, especially if its because of him. So the tears of love comes out in making his beloved happy and how. Even if it could come after shedding tears, to wash away all the sadness breed-ed within. Radha when goes sulk, is the most sad moment for Krishn and he becomes stunned and unmovable. When Radha thinks she thinks always how she can make Krishn smiling. And so Krishn also thinks how he can greet Radha 24 hours a day. Every second they live to love each other. But there love when seen by any associate, he or she also gets the unlimited blissed love grace of them. The tears of emotional love when seen are alike as we see in world but the reaction in divinity is so much soothing and increasing every second, every moment.And the one who see and hear of such love also gets the divinity for that moment, and if he or she remains in this feeling ever, he or she can feel the ever increasing divine love of Radha Krishn, ever.
SUPREME FORM OF GOD Radha Krishn with associates
I am thirsty of your vision,
As if i have not taken a breathe, for survival
I can't be in a state of long,
Don't have any thing after surrendering my all.
One play the drums, and guitar another,
One sings so sweet, blessing love together,
One cares for food, and water another,
One arranges the stage and carpet of flower,
One smile always, and serves her beauty,
One keeps her talks, saying them sweety,
Filling the breeze, sweet and cold,
all over- the Divine couple,
With associates, and grace,
pleasing every survival.
