SEEKING KRISHNA’S PROTECTION


His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
On this advent day of Krishna we shall seek protection at the lotus
feet of Krishna. Then we will be able to cross over this ocean of illusory energy.
samäçritä ye pada-pallava-plavaàmahat-padaà puëya-yaço muräreù
bhavämbudhir vatsa-padaà paraà padaà padaà padaà yad vipadäà na teñäm [SB 10.14.58]
We should read how Krishna protects the demigods
or the devotees. We should seek Krishna’s protection. This world is so dangerous. It is said, padaà padaà yad vipadäm — at every step there is danger. But, samäçritä ye pada-pallava-plavaà mahat-
padaà puëya-yaço muräreù — if we take shelter of the lotus feet of Murari, under whose lotus feet the whole mahat-tattva, cosmic manifestation, is resting, then we can very easily cross this big ocean of birth and death. “Vatsa-padam” means an impression made by the hoof of a calf and the water contained in it. The vast ocean becomes like a small spot created by the impression of a calf’s hoof.
The Krishna consciousness movement is for this purpose. We are requesting and training
the bewildered living entities that have forgotten Krishna to revive their Krishna consciousness so that they may be saved from the onslaught of material nature. This Krishna consciousness movement is the greatest welfare work for human society. Take it very seriously and be happy. ·
