Devotee 3: Gurudeva, is parakiya-bhava present in Goloka Vrndavana?
Srila Gurudeva: Yes. If there is no parakiya-bhava there, then it will not be present in this material world, which is a shadow of the spiritual world. If a cow is grazing, then the shadow of the cow will be like the cow and not like that of a man. So this material world is a perverted reflection of that world. So, all of Krsna’s pastimes in prakata-lila (manifest pastimes) are there in their root form in Goloka Vrndavana. If these pastimes were not there, then how could the shadow come in this material world?
