“When you actually see God, you cannot see anything except God.”




Viṣṇujana: Lord Jesus Christ said that if you would see God, your eye must be single. Was he referring to that same statement that love of God is that single eye?

Prabhupāda: That means your one eye will be lost? What do you mean by that?

Viṣṇujana: Just he stated it that…

Prabhupāda: No, what do you understand by that? Your eyes will be single, is that the…? Then what do you mean? What do you understand by this statement?

Viṣṇujana: I understand that your attention would be one-pointed on God.

Prabhupāda: That’s it! That’s it. When you actually see God, you cannot see anything except God. That is God-seeing. That is stated in Caitanya-caritāmṛta, sthavor jaṅgam dekhe na dekhe tava mūrti. A highly-elevated devotee, first-class devotee, he sees trees or the animals are moving, nonmoving, so many varieties, but he does not see their form. Everywhere he sees Kṛṣṇa. That is a fact.

Kṛṣṇa says that sarva-yoniṣu kaunteya sambhavanti mūrtayayaḥ yaḥ [Bg. 14.4]. There are millions of varieties of forms of life, but I am the seed-giving father. So a devotee sees, “Oh, here is a son of Kṛṣṇa. Here is a son of Kṛṣṇa. Here is a son of Kṛṣṇa. Here is a son of Kṛṣṇa.” So if you love somebody, as soon as you see his son, you immediately remember who’s son he is. Therefore he sees the tree but immediately remembers, “Oh, it is Kṛṣṇa’s.” He sees a dog; he immediately sees Kṛṣṇa, “Oh, he is Kṛṣṇa’s.” He sees a watch; he immediately sees, “It is Kṛṣṇa’s.” Therefore he is single-eyed, Kṛṣṇa. That’s all. He has no other, any other vision. Everything Kṛṣṇa’s. Therefore he wants to take everything towards Kṛṣṇa, “Please come to Kṛṣṇa consciousness. You are missing. You are Kṛṣṇa’s. Why you are identifying with this nonsense? Why you are thinking American, American, Indian, or this or that? You are Kṛṣṇa’s. Come to Kṛṣṇa.”

This is our propaganda. We want to give eyes to the people. They are blind and their leaders are blind. Andhā yathāndhair upanīyamānas na te viduḥ svārtha-gatiṁ hi viṣṇoḥ [SB 7.5.31]. They do not know what is their ultimate goal of life, this Kṛṣṇa, God. So what Lord Jesus Christ says, it is right. So have saṅkīrtana.
