                                        God is a Little Blue Cowherd Boy


If we took a survey on a downtown sidewalk of a typical American city asking people if they believed in God, many would say "yes." But then if we asked them what they would say if we told them that God is a little blue cowherd boy who plays His flute in the bushes on the bank of the river Yamuna in the moonlit night, they might call the police to report that an escapee from a mental hospital is out roaming the streets.

So how did His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada convince so many thousands of well-educated young American men and women that God is a little blue cowherd boy who plays His flute on the bank of the river Yamuna in the moonlit night? The answer is: conviction.

Because Srila Prabhupada was seeing God at every minute, he could easily convince anyone who was honestly seeking the Absolute Truth of the actual identity of God. While those who are not sincere seekers will find it very odd, those who are genuine will be astounded and extremely happy that they have finally discovered God.
