Have you ever had a real experience of God?




I can honestly say, beyond any doubt, I have experienced God for real. The happiness, security and freedom from existential anxiety I experienced after I added Krishna to my life is a tangible fact.


And Krishna makes that promise in Bhagavad Gita - if you practice bhakti-yoga, devotion to God, He will reveal Himself to you.


Krishna says:


Now hear, O son of Prtha, how by practicing yoga in full consciousness of Me, with mind attached to Me, you can know Me in full, free from doubt. —Bg 7.1


In my mind, the best proof of God is that you become totally happy by adding Krishna to your life.


Someone may object - you also become happy by smoking some dope or winning the lottery, or having sex, what’s the difference? How is that proof of God?


The thing about bodily or mental pleasures, though, is that they don’t make the soul happy. Connecting to Krishna makes the soul happy, and contrary to sense-gratification, which always ends in misery and leaves you frustrated, the happiness of the soul is a constant fact.


Not only does the happiness of the soul not end, it only increases more and more. It’s a deep and lasting bliss that is never interrupted by suffering.


Sure, you may break a leg, your wife may leave you, your children may think you’re a complete loser, or you may be depressed due to lack of money, but the deep satisfaction of Krishna consciousness, once established, never leaves the

heart. And that’s the proof that Krishna is God.


So, as the saying goes - the proof of the pudding is in the eating.


Krishna says:


O learned Uddhava, those who fix their consciousness on Me, giving up all material desires, share with Me a happiness that cannot possibly be experienced by those engaged in sense gratification. --Srimad Bhagavatam 11.14.12
