Collected words from talks of Swami Tirtha

We do not like to hear the story of His disappearance. It’s too painful. But from one point of view it is very good, because you have to be so strong in your faith, that He could never hide from your vision. With the ointment of Bhakti, if you have that ointment on your eyes, you will never loose the vision of Shyamasundara-Krishna. How then can we speak about the disappearance of Krishna? No, this story is too painful. This story is the beginning of Kali-yuga. And we want to quit Kali-yuga, right? And we should not be satisfied with some simple Satya-yuga. No, we need divine harmony, beyond the top level of material existence. Because it is also said: “yadrishi yadrishi shradha/ siddhi bhavati tadrishi: According to your faith you will achieve perfection.” So whatever is your faith, according to that you will get some results. Therefore we have to cultivate faith.
