Krishna Consciousness

maitreya words5

So wonderful when majority of people talk about consciousness today. It was recently i.e. Few decades back that people started about Deity Consciousness. Krishna Consciousness.

Though the celebrations started happening during the the expanse of Bhakti Movement during 15th century onward in India. The origin of this movement has a deeper history that originally began in 7th Century in Southern India, particularly in modern Kerala, Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh, later on the Bhakti Movement spread to whole of Northern India. The core of the expanse came from the main deities being worshipped in Hindu Religion be it Vaishnavism (worship of Vishnu), Shaivism(worship of Shiva), Shaktiism (Worship of Goddess). Bhakti or movement of Devotion works through concept and core of attachment, devotion and fondness of belief and love for a deity. It is a way of Love like no other, a love that is ready to let go off the need for even self evolution, liberation or even salvation. Most of the founders of the Bhakti movements were poets who expounded the love and devotion to religious concepts built around one or more gods and goddesses.

This is a moment of change within the change for one seeks out the depth of Truth in the moment of singing, dancing, joy, happiness and openness and celebrate a day of childhood, innocence, sweetness, naughtiness, intellect, love, experience, wisdom, social reformer, revolutionist who was Krishna. Most of the people who talk about Krishna Consciousness are afraid and timid so they worship Krishna or keep away from Krishna.

One beautiful thing of consciousness which everyone forgets is that consciousness is not restrictive or bound in a conformity of following. Following someone is imitating someone, even if it is Krishna, never follow Him. It is not possible to follow anyone for every single level of consciousness is unique, any forceful following will only create a poor imitation. This is prominently shown when one tries to follow Krishna for Krishna a dangerous person, a Awakened person who is dangerous to all the conditions that one follows. Majority of followers of Krishna are themselves conditioned by the Condition of Krishna Consciousness, thus a big limitation for one to become aware of the truth in all its essence. The expanse one gains in such conditional freedom is a freedom as a slave of slavery, He who seeks the sky forgets the earth, one has to begin the journey from earth to finally reach the sky. One should be ready to rid of the one to be followed and one who wants freedom.

 All awakened spirit are to be understood, known and studied with depth but never should be followed or imitated, it blocks you, it restricts your growth and evolution for no Krishna created another Krishna, No Jesus created another Jesus, No Buddha created another Buddha, No Mahavira created another Mahavira, no Ramakrishna created another Ramakrishna. Majority of the awakened spirits were following within the realm the conditions, but Krishna was a shining star among the awakened spirits for Krishna never fitted in any concepts, philosophy, or condition known.

Krishna was more of a living infinity, a mesmerising star among the awakened spirits for each moment and each way of Krishna denied everything that was based on a condition and the condition laid down by Krishna for every situation and scenario looks apt for the occasion. His thoughts and ways transcended the ways of the time then and also time now, for it has been inspiration for many in many ways for thousands of years. His journey was a journey of No-Path, No-way, No-Time and No-Space, thus there was no destination for Krishna, no end for the journey was infinite.

His awakened spirit was thoughtless yet emitting the timeless thoughts and ways that was always breaking shattering the very conditions people were accustomed and conditioned to.Every moment what was broken and recreated was again broken with passage of time and space. Krishna broke the way of suppression, condition, philosophy and thoughts with every single passage of time and space. With the breaking of so much conditions and concepts, people even now hold the conditions, philosophy, thoughts and follow the life of suppressed by pushing that very things which was demolished by Krishna back unto Krishna so that they are still living a life within comfort zone.
Krishna was one who believed to live by the intrinsic value, where imitation had no relevance, no following, no rituals, no beliefs, it was a way of liberated. All the moment of life of Krishna shows He never held on to things, no imitation, no following. Once an act was done, it was done, then dropping of it happened, letting go happened, there was no condition for suppression’s or repressions, it was completely open. Due to the openness the depth was there, transparency was there, love was there but nothing was attached to, there were no walls to hold one back allowing the openness of one with the one to express itself in the full glory of righteousness, logic, rationale and clarity. This allowed Krishna to be fearless, guilt-free, focused and in full acceptance of the Self. This acceptance of the Self without any conditions laid made the self as open as they sky and as deep as the cosmos itself, there are no masks to hide behind, nothing to shy away from. Even the deception and deceiving tendencies show the clarity and depth Krishna had in oneself, it is this unparalleled beauty that makes Krishna impeccable, pristine.

 Followers and imitators are never be able to become impeccable and pristine for the condition and attachments makes them shallow and superficial, shadowy and shady thereby making them sinful, guilty, emotional, attached and succumbing to the desires. So following becomes dangerous, for we hold one condition to free ourselves from another condition, but the condition used for freeing is more conditioned than the condition one already knows and accepts.

The day and mo moment one stops following or imitating one will see the same consciousness that Krishna became aware of, Krishna Consciousness is a reference point. But then the moment you become aware of the Consciousness that Krishna became aware of, you will become YOU. The You will have “You Consciousness”, but then you will become dangerous for the society and the conditions they live by. It will revolutionise the way of You for You will never be the you, you used to be. The family, loved ones and known people will fear You for they fear that the shaky belief system will shatter, they will lose their identity. You can see the you in them, clearly, in their eyes, in their behaviour, in their attitude towards you.

Learn the awakened spirits, be the awakened spirit for a good beginning understand, know and study Krishna for once you know Him, you will know YOU. Knowing Krishna will allow you to unravel yourself to know the YOU in you, it is not a path of following, it is not imitation, it is not dressing like him, dancing like him, planning like him, but living a life without conditions or restrictions.

Walking the path of self is a condition but being on the path of selflessness brings one about to the pathless way. Come on the way of knowing the way and in the process bring about a change within to get liberated.
