Title: Gauranga with peacock feather & prema

User: MatusDate: 2006-08-16 06:12:32

 

Dear Swami Gaurangapada Gurudeva,

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!

 

Please accept my most humble obeisances at Your Lotus Feet.

 

i would like to ask You:

 

Can Lord Gauranga wearing a peacock feather give us prema?

 

Thank You in advance for Your answer and wish You and all the devotees happy Janmashtami!

 

Yours,

 

Matus

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Guru Parampara! :pranams: Pranams! and :bless: Blessings! Lord Gauranga can gives us prema (pure love) for Him always. It does not depend on whether He is wearing a peacock feather or not. He has descended to freely distribute His pure love to one and all which no other Form of God has ever done before. For more info on Lord Gauranga being dressed with a peacock feather, please read this article: "http://www.gaurangapada.org/essays/696-lord-gaurangas-peacock-feather-ekadashi-offering.html".

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!

 

Thank You.

 

That means that He is distributinig pure love always, not only in the mood of a devotee, but in both of them, in the mood as a Devotee as well as in the mood as God Himself (wearing peacock feather) ?

 

Isn't it like that:

to distribute Love He has to be relishing it Himself, meaning being in the mood of a devotee ?

 

Or is He relishing His Pure Love also in the mood as God Himself?

 

Many thanks,

 

Yours,

 

Matus

Lord Gauranga is always raso vai sah, the holy abode of all transcendental mellows of pure love and can distribute His pure love in whatever mood He exhibits. Simply by seeing Him, one attains pure love for Him. He is love personified. He is relishing His own pure love always in all His moods. It is only to fully relish the three specific highest transcendental emotions of Shrimati Radha, that Lord Krishna assumes the most merciful form of Lord Gauranga, with the mood and complexion of Shri Radha.
