The wonderful thing about devotional service is, that the process and the goal are the same. Here we glorify the Lord and relish hearing His pastimes, and in the spiritual world the residents engage in the same blissful activities. Here we express our love and devotion by cooking nice preparations for His pleasure, and we make all kinds of pleasing arrangements and decorations from flowers and leaves - in the spiritual world the same activities are going on in absolute perfection. In this way, we can already receive a glimpse into the same joy and bliss which awaits us in the spiritual world. Already now, even in a place like Copenhagen, we can taste a tiny drop of this unlimited and ever increasing joy!
In order to offer our love and devotion we have to give it some external shape and packaging, so that we can present it to Krishna and His devotees. The main way to package our love and devotion is through cooking and flower arrangements. Both have a common principle: we collect something from nature - either fruits and vegetables, or flowers - and combine them with love and devotion to create something amazingly wonderful for Krishna's pleasure. The result is surcharged with sublime, devotional energy which Krishna joyfully accepts. And the devotees relish the remnants and receive spiritual upliftment through honoring this maha prasadam.
Your servant, Devaki dd
