A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavatham : Ch-6. Part-4.

6: Sri Krishna’s Vrindavana and Dvarka Lilas :


The Bhagavata also describes God as a threefold manifestation: Brahma, Paramatman and Bhagavan.

Srimad Bhagavatham- skandham-1. chapter-2. slokam-11. (3rd and 4th lines )

"Brahmeti  paramatmeti 

bhagavan iti sabdyate" 

 He is the transcendent Supreme Being, the Absolute, which is Brahman; He is the creative operative power, which is Paramatman; He is also the incarnation, which is Bhagavan. 

Three stages of the operation of God are here portrayed in the description of God being Brahman, Paramatman and Bhagavan.

The lilas, or the plays of God in the form of Sri Krishna, have been inscrutable right from the beginning. 

The very purpose of the play of God is to manifest those realities which are beyond human comprehension—to stultify human thought, paralyse all human action, stun the individual ego, and transform human nature into divine nature. 

Everything is a miracle right from the beginning of Sri Krishna’s life—his birth in a prison, the prison doors opening automatically, the crossing of the Yamuna River, and the various fantastic scenes that are associated with him in the Vrindavana Lila. 

Boisterous, naughty and uncontrollable is the nature that Sri Krishna demonstrated right from childhood. 

He was not a simple, obedient, calm and quiet child. 

He was disobedient, boisterous, rebellious, independent in every way, and if anybody interfered with his independence, he would react with consternation, a wonder which surpasses human understanding.
