Krishna consciousness is a state of awareness in which an individual acts in complete harmony with the Divine or the ultimate reality of Krishna. It is a form of Bhakti yoga (or devotional service) in which the purpose is to devote one’s thoughts, actions and worship to pleasing Krishna, who some consider to be the supreme god.
To act with Krishna consciousness is to free the self from the illusion that it is an individual body. It is a way to experience the bliss of one’s true, eternal nature. It is said that anyone can do this and that Krishna consciousness is something everyone has naturally.
Practicing yoga can be a powerful tool for stepping outside the ego and cultivating Krishna consciousness.
