Internal Potency: Nature of the Spiritual World

Krishna's internal potency manifests the spiritual world. It is divided into the

  • potency for existence
  • potency for knowledge
  • potency for pleasure

The potency for eternal existence manifests the spiritual planets and the bodies of all the inhabitants. It gives shape to the unlimited variegatedness of the land, villages, forests, hills, and pastime places in the spiritual world.

The potency for knowledge manifests all the hopes, imagination, intelligence and judgments devotees use to serve the Lord and exchange in never-ending, relishable relationships with Him. The arrangements for all the loving pastimes enacted by the Lord and His devotees are regulated by this potency.

The potency for pleasure completely captivates Krishna Himself. This energy is represented by Radha, Krishna’s female counterpart. Radha is the embodiment of highest love for Krishna. Love captivates Krishna's heart completely and gives everyone in the spiritual world the highest pleasure.
