In the whole history, Krishna is the only one who accepted and loved the life in all aspects completely.
He did not believe in living on the earth for the sake of another world or another life. He always believed in "living in the present moment", on this earth. He is the one with highest affirmative towards life.
Because, in their life time, life on the earth was full of misery and pain which was very hard and impossible to live on the earth.
He has shown how to accept the life as it is and enjoy its beauty by being pure, with the concept called "Attachment With Detachment". As a symbol of that, he has worn peacock feather on the top of his crown.
The essence of Krishna
"If the divine has to enter and manifest itself within you, you need an empty space".
- Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev
Radhe (Krishna's childhood lover):
"Krishna is with me and always with me whenever or whoever he is, still with me".
Duryodhana (One of the main characters of the great epic Mahabharata):
"Krishna is a rogue with a smile on his face, as of anyone else. He eat, drink, sing , dance, make love, fight, gossip with old people and playing with children. He is not at all a God".
Shikandin ( who tortured within himself right from the childhood because of certain situation):
"Even though Krishna never gave me any hope, he is there and the breeze of the hope touches everyone".
In that playfulness with one's own life, Krishna exists.
Not knowing how to be playful is the major reason, for not understanding the most deepest and inner essence of the life by many people.
How to explore the life in a playful path?
- One need a heart full love, a happy mind and an energetic vibrating body.
- One must be willing to play with one's own consciousness, imagination, memory, life and even with death.
- This path is not just dancing with someone, it means to dance with life, dance with the enemy, dance with the one one loves, dance with death.
He has shown the beauty of life in the way of tremendous joy.
