Monday, August 14th, 2017, is a day Shree will always remember in this life. Today marks the day of Krsna Janmashtami, and on the same day on August 14th, 2009, Rajashree became Shree, ‘Twice Born,’ the day I met my KrsnaGuru on Krsna Janmashtami. Eight years later my eighth birthday is on the same day of Krsna’s Janmashtami (Birthday).
This 8th birthday of mine is way too remarkable as Shree has crossed certain milestones in the world of Spirituality, Of which one of the most beautiful ones is that Shree completed her study of the scripture – The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. Shree began this Scripture September, of 2009 and finished it August of 2017.
Shree was overwhelmed when she had to complete reading this scripture as she couldn’t part ways with Sri Ramakrishnaji who have been with her on her whirlwind journey always guiding and teaching some of the precious and priceless lessons of Love and Devotion to the Guru and God by teleporting her back-in time to Dakishneshwar or Kolkata through the divine vision. His last words to me were, ‘keep going ahead and find the treasure that awaits deep inside the forest and never stop.’ Shree is incredibly humbled with sincere, heartfelt gratitude which she can only feel within her heart.
Now to the birth of the unborn, on this wonderful day, Shree wishes you a very ‘HAPPY SHREEKRSNA JANMASHTAMI.’ With humble reverence, Shree thank Thee for gracing this land with Thy Lotus Feet, making it Pure and Divine once again. Thank you for bestowing Thy Grace upon Shree to be born with Thee Eternally for this Spectacular Performance in ‘Krsna Leelas.’ This journey is the equivalent of a full 70 mm Dolby Digital story. Romance, love, happiness, bitterness, villainy, anger, songs and a million shades of adult gray material too! This sport or play is what is called ‘Krsna Leela’ (The Lord’s Play) in which he so beautifully sports and enjoys every aspect of his sport as he is the Story Writer, Creator, Director, Cinematography and Actor/Actress in his Movie/Creation.
‘Krsna,’ whose nature is secretive and unknown, is not only ‘Sat-Chit-Anand’ (Truth Knowledge Bliss) but one who can never be fathomed, whose ways are inscrutable and indescribable. One who is the paragon of masculine beauty in whose charm this entire Universe is mesmerized. Krsna’s enchanting human ways bewilder even the great Sages and Saints. He loves to manifest in the human form to sport in his creation experiencing his OwnSelf. His ultimate goal is to expound about ‘Krsna’s Way of Life,’ the most esoteric knowledge of all Knowledge.
The Love incarnate manifests age after age in various garbs and lives incognito, creating delusions in the minds of the mortal beings making them believe that Krsna is an ordinary human being. One who play acts in his own ‘leelas’ to set an example for this world to follow. His sole purpose is to redeem the mortal beings from this birth-death cycle. One who is unattached in the world of duality, like the Lotus leaf in the water.
He is an actor par-excellence in every role that he plays, be it a teacher, father, mother, husband, friend, lover, brother, servant or King. You name it, and he becomes that for you! He is the ‘Uttama Purusha’ or ‘The Perfect Person’ amidst all imperfect situations unaffected and unperturbed. His sole purpose is to establish Dharma and Righteousness. He performs every duty of that human form to absolute perfection and sets an example for this world to follow in his footsteps.
Krsna is the Athangha Sagar (limitless Ocean), whose depth and breadth can never be measured, who can only give selflessly and yet is full of Himself. He is a perfect Celibate, even when surrounded by his ultimate dancing beauties or damsels, retaining his Spiritual Nobility. The Infallible Lord whose nature is something Shree would love to covet from Thee and live a life of Thy alone. Let Shree serve you selflessly and love you unconditionally and let her mind be attached to Thy Lotus Feet alone without which she hasn’t reached anywhere in this Spiritual World.
Shree offers her humble and heartfelt obeisance unto Thy Lotus Feet. Without the diamond cutter, the diamond is mere a stone. The lustre in the diamond is the reflection of who You Truly Are. Without Thee, Shree’s existence has no meaning. Shree is eternally indebted and ever grateful to Thee. Shree seeks Thy grace to attain Unreserved, Uninterrupted, and Favourable Devotional and Loving Service with absolute Faith and Complete Surrender Unto Thy Lotus Feet. Let Shree’s Tishnaghi grow beyond the sky, and Shree is always Adiyean to Thy Lotus Feet. Om Namo Bhagavade Vasudevaya.
