A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavatham : Ch-6. Part-12.





6: Sri Krishna’s Vrindavana and Dvarka Lilas :


Part-12.


This is the intention behind the Rasa Dance.

Otherwise, the contradictory nature that is behind this performance is inexplicable to human nature.

This is how God works.

Are we able to comprehend God’s ways, how He can create and then destroy things?

God can create floods and wash away villages.

Is it justifiable action?

He can break the Earth to its very bowels, and cause kingdoms and all humanity to fall into it.

Does God create people in order that He may destroy them?

Is He playing a joke? Yes, says the Brahmasutra.

The only reason for God’s creation is to play jokes with Himself, as a child plays with his reflection.

 Sri Krishna did not play with little children, he did not play with women; he played with his own reflections, as a child dances in ecstasy by seeing its own image in mirrors kept everywhere.

 His Gopis were only mirrors through which he himself was reflected and, therefore, they got transformed into a spirit which was not human—not man, not woman.
