From: Thir Thapa

Hare Krishna Prabhuji, I have  read and heard your and Other devotees +Srila Prabhupada on how to see difference between gross + subtle body and soul..iam analyzing these facts from past many months specially when i was studying Bhagvadgita as it is 2.11-30 …so to some extent (Theoratically)intellectually i can understand these things by the grace of all devotees and Lord Krishna but how to REALIZE it ,i feel that unless that knowledge of soul is revealed by lord from within my heart iam incomplete in realizing that iam eternal jivatma and thus servant of Lord and his devotees .as Prabhupada says that spiritual knoweledge is revealed not understood …plz guide,’is it so, and whats the price one has to pay  for that one realization which can help me and then i can help other suffering souls in material creation.

    Krishna is on the absolute platform and thus His name, fame, form, pastimes and paraphenalia are also on the absolute platform. So it is very good that we recognise that realization comes from within the heart as Supersoul reveals His intentions to us. Not only does He signal His intention, but He gives us the ability to understand and also whatever protection we may need while we are implementing His instructions.

    That is a good word for the Supersoul signaling His instructions to us within our heart. He is actually ’empowering’ us to act in certain ways for our protection and for our further advancement in devotional service.
