Miami, Florida

Here in Miami

I was treated quite wonderfully at the ISKCON Miami Centre.  Special lunch items were prepared.  Quite spontaneously I arrived—almost last minute.  Also spontaneously, I was asked to speak from “Wherever you like.”

Okay then.  I chose verse 15.15 from the Bhagavad Gita beginning with the word from God Himself, “I am seated in everyone’s heart.”  The verse goes on to say that God is the source of all wisdom and ignorance as well.

We all experience, at times, a state of forgetfulness.  I know I have my senior moments.  And sometimes there are incredible things to remember at the speed of light—an important name of a person, place and details—which I need at the tip of my tongue.

I also spoke at the home of a Krishna devotee, where friends gathered.  From the book, Bhagavatam, I read to the group about the twenty-one avatars.  The Bhagavatam, however, offers a larger number.  Amongst them there are different categories of avatars.  These different manifestations of the Absolute can make it very complex.

When wasn’t the world complex in its cosmic make-up?

I guess it is something to ponder.  One thing is for sure, we are all very tiny and hopefully humble.

May the Source be with you!
