“Just like fog is immediately, I mean to say, moved, simply by sunrise. Sunrise. Just like this is night, darkness. In the morning, as soon as there will be sunrise, there will be no more darkness. Immediately all thousands and millions of miles of darkness immediately moved. So try to make Krishna surya – the sun, Krishna – rise in your heart, and everything will be solved.” A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
The other morning I took a couple of pictures of the beautiful sunrise over Texas desert… We are traveling on the Vans Warped Tour right now until mid-August and it’s keeping us busy and sweaty! All day Prahlada passes out books at the shows and I pretty much sleep all day so I can then drive all night to the next day’s venue. Right now we’re right at the border of New Mexico where the show will be tomorrow, in Las Cruces.
“Just like we have got experience: when the sky is cloudy, we are not very much happy, and as soon as there is sunrise, clear sky, we say, “Oh, today is very nice day.” Why? Because the light is there. So when we come to goodness, the light of knowledge is there, and therefore we see, “Oh, it is very nice.” But if we stay on that point, “Oh, it is very nice. It is very nice day,” that is not all. But you must utilize the very nice day. Otherwise what is very nice day to you? Similarly, knowledge has to be also fully utilized. And what is the full utilization of knowledge? The full utilization of knowledge is to understand God. That is full utilization.” Srila Prabhupada
