One of the most amazing symptoms of Krsna’s illusion, imposed upon those who sincerely want to forget Him, is that the conditioned souls never develop this very essential desire to investigate the origin of everything surrounding us.
In most awkward circumstances materially spoken, Srila Prabhupada demonstrated transcendental happiness, which is completely unknown to those who are materially motivated, considering themselves karmis, jnanis or even yogis.
As reported by the first disciples of Srila Prabhupada who were attracted to His Divine Grace´s pure chanting of the Maha Mantra, when they started to chant, very quickly were lifted above the entrapment of the mind and the other senses.
