    Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:

    Jaya Guru Datta.
    We discussed that Krishna wandered in Gokulam as a cowherd and displayed many miracles that left even the Gods amazed. After each wondrous act of Lord Krishna, all Gods, all kinds of Gods came down to earth and sang and danced in joy. Lord Krishna’s miracles were myriad – he lifted Govardhana mountain with his little finger, he removed Indra’s arrogance, he received Abhishekam from Kamadhenu (the cow that gives whatever one desires) and became “Govinda”. That is why, Lord Krishna very much loves milk. You also heard the story of Lord Venkataramana. He drank the milk offered to him while sitting in an anthill. That is why milk is considered the nectar of Kaliyuga.

    When the creator, Brahma, had the cattle in Gokulam disappear, Lord Krishna displayed a bigger miracle and took the form of all the cows and calves in Gokulam. Brahma himself came down and praised Krishna as the Guru to all the worlds. Krishna cured the residents of Gokulam of all their illusions. Good doctors first help surface the hidden ailments. We may wonder, “We came to this doctor trusting Ayurveda, but there are additional ailments I am now suffering from”. But, after all the hidden ailments are surfaced, the doctor gives you the medicines to clean up your system. Similarly, what Krishna did was to first create illusion in the minds of everybody in Gokulam. Then, he removed all their illusion, so that there was nothing else left inside. He did not stop at that. He taught them lessons in self-realization. From Gokulam, he came to Mathura and vanquished and killed Kamsa, who was a manifestation of ignorance. He blessed lifelong devotees and parents Devaki and Vasudeva. It’s impossible to single out one miracle. There are countless. Bhagavatam is full of Krishna’s miracles. We can talk about Bhagavatam endlessly. The Lord who was patiently biding time in Gokulam, came to Mathura and spread divine knowledge among his devotees to benefit all the worlds. Why are we repeating this over and over? So that we can remember it.

    Krishna generously blessed Kuchela, who is also known as Sri Dhama. He blessed Sri Dhama with several boons. By performing countless divine deeds to benefit the worlds, Lord Krishna became known in all the worlds as a Guru. That is why he’s called Jagadguru (Guru to all the worlds). He helped the righteous Pandavas. He became Geetacharya (the teacher of Bhagavad Gita) by blessing Arjuna, the third of the five Pandavas with Bhagavad Gita. Today, Gita is known the world over. People that have recited or heard the Gita have undergone very positive transformations in their lives. Many of them have become Yogis. So many have become rulers of their countries. So many of these rulers cite the Bhagavad Gita. This is an extraordinarily sacred scripture we are blessed with.

    Jaya Guru Datta.
