A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Krsna Book on The Supreme Personality of Godhead, tells the story of Krishna’s life from Srimad-Bhagavatam, the summit of the ancient Vedas from India.
The Krsna book presents a collection of beautiful, readable short stories and illustrations. It forms a biography of the life of Krishna, who was present in India five thousand years ago.
The stories develop from Krishna’s birth to His childhood and youth. Krishna plays with His boyfriends in the forest while looking after the cows and calves and incidentally, He kills so many demons. He dances with Radha and His beautiful girlfriends, the gopis in the rasa Lila on some full-moon nights.
In this book, Krsna, all of His activities as a human being are described. Although Krsna plays like a human being, He always maintains His identity as the Supreme Personality of Godhead
Although they’re written just like ordinary story activities of a person. But they are not ordinary things. If you simply read Krsna book, although it looks like story, then you become delivered from these clutches of repetition of birth and death.
I have explained in the beginning of Krsna book that love is practical exhibition. It is not theoretical. We cannot keep love within the heart. If actually it is within the heart, it must be expressed practically.
Spiritual world means there is no work. There is simply ananda, joyfulness. That you see from reading Krsna book. They’re not working. Krsna is going with the calves and the cows. That is not working. That is amusement.
Prabhupada was happy listening to Krishna’s pastimes. As the days went by, I would speculate on which stories he liked. He seemed to enjoy hearing about the pastimes of Krishna killing the demons. I was looking for another pastime that Prabhupada would enjoy and perhaps laugh about. But when he saw me looking through the book he said, “Anywhere, anywhere. Krishna is like a sweet ball. Wherever you bite it, it’s sweet. So just read.”
