The whole creation is going on under the direction of Krsna. That is also stated in the Bhagavad-gita: mayadhyaksena prakrtih suyate sa-caracaram (BG. 9.10). Under His supervision… Just imagine how expert supervision is there, that the sun is rising exactly in the same moment as it is to be done. The waves of the sea are going on perpetually, but the waves cannot come beyond the limit. We have walked on the sea beach. So just at ten, one, three feet, the big ocean, Pacific Ocean is… But we are certain that this Pacific Ocean cannot come beyond this limit. We are certain. How we are certain? Because there is the order of Krsna. Mayadhyaksena. Because we know, I know, you know that there is God’s order… The Pacific Ocean may be very, very big, but still, he cannot disobey the order of the Supreme. Mayadhyaksena prakrtih suyate sa-caracaram (BG. 9.10). This is understanding of Krsna. Krsna consciousness means you have to study everything, how things are going on. And this is stated. You have to simply think, “Yes.” You have to confirm by your brain. If you have got dull brain, then how you can study? Krsna says in the Bhagavad-gita that mayadhyaksena prakrtih suyate sa-caracaram. The prakrti, the material nature, is working under His direction. And you can verify it, how nature is working correctly, exactly. Unless there is some systematic order, how everything is working systematically. As soon as there is spring, immediately thousands and millions of trees, immediately the foliage comes out. Immediately. And as soon as there is fall, September, last, all the leaves fall down, immediately. So this is the process of creation. Just like in Bible it is said, “Let there be creation,” and there was creation. So it is fact, actually. But we cannot understand how much powerful is Krsna, or God. Simply by His will, simply by His will, everything takes place. Millions and millions of things come out immediately, and millions and millions of things immediately annihilated. That is Krsna. That is God. Mayadhyaksena prakrtih suyate sa-caracaram (BG. 9.10).
