Is the flute that Krishna hold also a symbol of Bodhichitta, since he makes everyone around him who him hears playing the flute happy? I fell there is a connection, like the mani that Chenrezig holds in his heart, (or the vessel that Budha holds)

Compare the seven notes of the flute to the seven notes of the human being:

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

Now I fell very happy! :D thank you

(we have to become the flute in his hand!!! it's been a year, that I feel God telling me to sing for him, meaning to achieve self realization,and so to be able to sing his song, I never thought to compare us with a flute, now I understand better what He means. Until today, I thought it means to find the ocean wisdom inside of me, now I see better the way)

Yes! :)

Following divinity's will produces happiness. Following our ego's will brings pain.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami

And that is why we need meditation? To stay in contact with our divinity all the day and not once in a while?
