| "In the Vaikuṇṭha planets there is very great, respectful consciousness, 'Here is Lord'. But in Vṛndāvana, there is no such respectful consciousness, Kṛṣṇa and the cowherds boys, gopīs, but their love is very, very intense. Out of love, they cannot disobey Kṛṣṇa. Here in the Vaikuṇṭha planets, out of respect, they cannot disobey. In the Vṛndāvana, Goloka Vṛndāvana, they cannot think of denying anything to Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa is so much lovable. They can give anything. There is no so respectful, because they do not know that Kṛṣṇa is God or not. They know, 'Kṛṣṇa is like us, one of us'. But their respect and love is so intense that without Kṛṣṇa they become lifeless. There is no life."
