I remember one time, Śrīla Prabhupāda, when he was giving a lecture on Queen Kuṇtī, in Māyāpur, and he was talking on the verse niskincana gocara. Kṛṣṇa is only known by those who have nothing. And Śrīla Prabhupāda explained that how wonderful it is to have nothing. And he made a facial expression … How wonderful it is … to have nothing. And it was so expressive, it sounded very deep. Having nothing doesn’t mean of course in an external sense, but actually realizing that everything is Kṛṣṇa’s. That there is nothing but Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa’s energy and Kṛṣṇa. That everything is the property of Kṛṣṇa.
