A Lecture by Giriraj Swami From Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.4.22, given in Juhu, Bombay on December 2, 2007
“When a devotee comes to the stage of vasudeva, as was the case with Krsna’s father Vasudeva, he acquires the power to carry the Supreme Personality of Godhead within his heart. Not only the form of the Lord but His associates, His pastimes, His abode–everything–is manifest in the heart of the pure devotee. When the pure devotee has the power to carry the Lord within his heart, he also has the power to transfer the Lord to the heart of another devotee who is qualified, and that transferring of Krsna from the heart of the pure devotee to the heart of, in fact, another pure devotee, is called diksa (initiation)–a very deep process.”
