Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10, Text 41

Beauty ranks among the world’s most fascinating — and frustrating — features. History is filled with stories of ill-fatedcaptivation by beauty.

Can we not relish thefascination without the frustration?
Yes, we can, declares Gita wisdom, if we redirect our thirst for beauty from worldly objects to Krishna.The Bhagavad-gita (10.41) indicates that everything attractive — including worldly beauty — is a spark of Krishna’s supreme all-attractiveness.

Attraction to the spark and attraction to the whole beget radically different results:

1. Worldly beauty agitates, Krishna’s beauty pacifies: Worldly beauty is limited and temporary; only some people in the world are beautiful and even they are beautiful for just some part of their life. That’s why those attracted to worldly beauty sentence themselves to competition, agitation, tribulation. Krishna’s beauty, however, is eternal and eternally available for each one of us. When we become attracted to his beauty, we become secure and peaceful, knowing that we have found an inalienable source of nectar.
