Krishna consciousness is not any of these states. It is completely different. The soul is situated in the middle of the chest. If divine consciousness arises even for a moment, it feels like an electric current in the heart. You can trade your entire life for one moment of that. I can’t say more.

We should try to develop the love of Krishna. Love means when you think of Krishna there is a surge of very complex emotions. There is excitement, humility, desperation, craving, simultaneously. This is the abhasa or preliminary stage. This emotional stage is also called bhava.

And all this will happen automatically if simply develop the urge to listen to the holy name. Prabhupada has given the perfect formula. But it cannot be realized by words and theories. We have to experience it, feel it. Once we experience it, then lots of words will make sense.
