“You are just like the moonlight” – Nectar of Devotion quoted by Indradyumna Swami

“You are just like the moonlight” – Nectar of Devotion quoted by Indradyumna Swami

“One aged devotee of Krsna addressed Him in this way: ‘My dear Krsna, O killer of the demon Agha, my body is now invalid due to old age. I cannot speak very fluently, my voice is faltering, my mind is not strong, and I am often attacked by forgetfulness. But, my dear Lord, You are just like the moonlight, and my only real regret is that for want of any taste for Your pleasant shining I did not advance myself in Krsna consciousness.’ This statement is an instance of lamentation due to one’s being unable to achieve his desired goal.”

[ Nectar Of Devotion, Chapter 29 ]
