So what is the difficulty? Even in your ordinary life you can study Kṛṣṇa, you can understand Kṛṣṇa. And Kṛṣṇa will help you. As soon as you begin studying Kṛṣṇa, understanding Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa will help you from within. Kṛṣṇa is with you. Kṛṣṇa is not far away. He is so kind that He is sitting in your heart as your friend just to help you how you become liberated from this material contamination. Why you do not take this advantage?
Every sane man should take advantage of this instruction of Bhagavad-gītā, but rightly, as it is said. Then anywhere he may be, it doesn't matter, he is a liberated person.
- īhā yasya harer dāsye
- karmaṇā manasā vācā
- nikhilāsv apy avasthāsu
- jīvan-muktaḥ sa ucyate
- (Brs. 1.2.187)
Anyone who is trying to become Kṛṣṇa conscious, and being Kṛṣṇa conscious he is trying to serve Kṛṣṇa sincerely . . . he may be situated anywhere. It does not matter he is Indian or Hindu or Mussulman or Christian or this or that. Simply if he thinks of Kṛṣṇa always in the process as described here, he becomes liberated.
So you can become liberated at your home. Simply you have to think of Kṛṣṇa. The gopīs were so elevated devotees. What was their function? The only function was that they were always thinking of Kṛṣṇa. That's all. Lord Caitanya therefore recommends, ramyā kācid upāsanā vraja-vadhū-vargeṇā yā kalpitā (Caitanya-manjusa). These vraja-vadhūs, they are village girls.
They are daughters of cowherd's men, naturally they are not Brahmins, daughter's of Brahmins, they have, they have no Vedic understanding Vedānta philosophy. But their only business was 24 hours thinking of Kṛṣṇa. Therefore Lord Caitanya recommends, ramyā kācid upāsanā vraja-vadhū-vargeṇā yā kalpitā (Caitanya-manjusa). "There is no more first-class type of worshipping Kṛṣṇa, than it was conceived by the vraja-vadhūs," or the cowherd girls, dancers in Vṛndāvana.
