Bringing Krishna in the mind this is a positive alternative. We are bringing Krishna in, by our activities, by our devotional service, we bring Krishna there, then automatically the darkness goes out. Most of the yoga processes are for systematically eliminating the darkness. This is a very difficult process, very tedious, but it happens automatically when you bring in the sun of Krishna. So rather than we just, the grossest type of maya is like the four regulative principles. Those of course we have to neglect right from the beginning. But all the subtle maya’s that are there if we are very consistent in bringing Krishna into our heart, then those will automatically go away. So in that sense it is a very positive process. Devotional service means that we very consciously use our intelligence to establish Krishna at every moment in our heart.
