Back To Godhead Vol 47, 1970-1973
Krsna consciousness is the perfect process for solving all the problems of life because it can at once end our illusory separation from Krsna [pronounced KRISHNA], the Supreme Lord. Krsna is present everywhere, even within the atom and within the heart of every living creature, but in this material world our eternal consciousness of Krsna is covered by a cloud of forgetfulness. The chanting of Hare Krsna can at once dissipate this cloud because it is identical with Krsna Himself—Krsna the name and Krsna the Supreme Person are the same. His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is a genuine spiritual master, a representative of Krsna’s who is inviting us to take advantage of this sublime process and be happy. Krsna is the essence of all existence, and because Krsna consciousness revives our relationship with Him, it is an essential spiritual movement for human society. In the pages of Back to Godhead, this divine science of spiritual culture is explained.
