  • Seeing Through One's Ears

    ❝He [Śrīla Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Gosvāmī Mahārāja] said that a person who has seen through his ears is fit to be relied upon. We can trust him. But seeing with one’s eyes? Duryodhana and Kaṁsa saw [Kṛṣṇa] with their eyes, but their perception was wrong. But whatever Śukadeva Gosvāmī and our Uddhavajī described was after they had seen through their ears and was correct. There cannot be any mistake or error in their perception.  Whatever we hear from eternally liberated mahāpuruṣas is right, and we should rely upon that. But seeing through one’s eyes has many flaws.❞ ...
