Happiness is beyond the body

In 1973 or so, I had a high fever. But after listening to Srila Prabhupad’s lecture in Vrndavan on Nectar Of Devotion, I was feeling so much bliss. But physically I had high fever and I was suffering, but spiritually I was very blissful! So I realised that the happiness of hearing Krishna, or hearing Krishna, or chanting Krishna’s names, that happiness is beyond the body. So we hope that all of you will be absorbed in the rasa, nectar of Krishna’s devotional service. While we are in this material world sometimes we will be happy and sometimes we will sad, we are in the body, but spiritually we should always be in bliss. Hare Krishna!
