What is it? Is your phone ringing? Who is calling you? Is it Krishna calling you?

—It is Nimai...

Oh, Nimai... Do you know the phone number of Krishna?

—Can you give it to me?

His is a nine digit number. You know? Krishna's phone number is the Flute!

When somebody calls us on mobile phone, we come, but what grips and pulls the Vraja gopis to come?

vamsi varanao mane na katha ye sune na
o mora keno more na?

"The Flute heeds no prohibition, listens to no words. It is dead [a piece of wood], why does it not die then?"

This is Radharani's separation...

vamsira kono laj nai divanise dake-tai
ami yata dure yay vamsi bole eso rai
keno ye samay bujhe na
o mora keno more na?
dusta vamsi dustami krtera pagalami

"The Flute has no shame! It only keeps on calling day and night. No matter how far I go, the Flute keeps calling, 'Come, Rai.' Why does it not understand? Why does it not die? Naughty Flute is full of mischief, it drives Me crazy."

This is very beautiful. There is also Krishna's separation—becoming crazy in separation from Radharani, He says, "O Subal! My mind is burning in agony, you will not be able to understand anything, O Subal!"

Anyhow, I can tell about this when we are in Vrindavan. It is not necessary to speak about this here...

Gross!
One of the grossest things a disciple can do: 'At the time of taking initiation we surrender to our Guru and promise him, 'I will serve you, I will serve your mission.' But when after that they go to another temple and do service there, they are just like a...'

 

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.'

Illusory environment means we are covered by an illusory net and we forget everything. Overcoming this illusory environment will depend on the quality of our surrender.
