—Nice ringtone.

It is sound... People are attracted to dyuti (splendour), rupa (form), rasa (taste), gandha (scent), sabda (sound), sparsa (tactile experience), but you will get everything—great beauty, great enjoyment, and so on—in Goloka Vrindavan. Rupa Goswami writes about this in his Vidagda-Madhava. These are very high level things.

In the material life, when a husband and a wife live together and have their conjugal life, they do some enjoyment for five-ten minutes, but you will get that kind of enjoyment eternally in Goloka Vrindavan.

In this material world we always run after beauty, smell, sound, and so on (just as you have said now, "Very good sound"), but if you see Krishna's beauty, you will forget everything. Even Lord Siva ran away leaving Parvati when Krishna showed His beauty.

Lord Siva is a big sadhu, he has big jata (dreadlocks), a big-big beard, a snake, but when Krishna became a beautiful woman and was playing with a ball in His hands, juggling it, "Ping-pong, ping-pong", Lord Siva became attracted by Her. The girl started running, and Lord Siva ran after Her. Parvati tried to stop him, "I am your wife! I am your actual wife! Why you are running after that girl?" But Lord Siva only brushed her off. He ran after the girl and, when he finally embraced Her, the girl became Lord Krishna—this is Hari-Hara. We tell this story at the Hari-Hara ksetra when we do Sri Nabadwip Dham parikrama.

So, even Lord Siva cannot control himself...

 


Sri Hari-Hara Deity.

Lured and Lashed
'If you enter the illusory environment, you become attacked by it and cannot run away from there—you get beaten so much but cannot run away; but the Guru can break the illusory environment and let us see the chinmaya dham, transcendental abode.'

 

Sri Sri Damodarastakam
'By such childhood pastimes as this He is drowning the inhabitants of Gokula in pools of ecstasy, and is revealing to those devotees who are absorbed in knowledge of His supreme majesty and opulence that He is only conquered by devotees whose pure love is imbued with intimacy and is free from all conceptions of awe and reverence. With great love I again offer my obeisances to Lord Damodara hundreds and hundreds of times.'

We do not believe it, we think the Deity is made of wood, made of steel,
but the Deity is non-different from Krishna...
