Krishna is Love

This is an excerpt from the book Saints of Vraja written by O.B.L Kapoor.

"For the saints of Vraja have worshiped and realized God, not in His ordinary aspect as the Creator and Controller of the universe, as the mere bestower of boons or dispenser of justice, but in His highest aspect as Love and Sweetness (madhurya), in which He does no fret or frown over our faults and weaknesses, but loves and adores us in spite of our failings, if only we love Him; an aspect in which He seeks us, as much as we seek Him, loves us as much as we love Him, needs us as much as we need Him; an aspect, in which He is more natural than supernatural, more human than super human, in which He has all the failings and weaknesses of the humans, but in which paradoxical as it may seem, failings become His embellishments and add to His sweetness and perfection, instead of detracting from it, because they stem not from any weakness inherent in Him, but from His nature as Love and His love for those who love Him."
