Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.8.

Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-8.
 ( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

So, in this wondrous phenomenon called the Rasa dance, the Spirit is dancing with its own manifestations. The Srimad Bhagavata beautifully and significantly puts it,

"Reme rameso vrajasundaribhih yatharbhakah svapratibimba-vibhramah":

As a child plays with its own reflection seen in a mirror, so did the Lord play with the eternal devotees of Vrindavana. He did not play with personalities, even as a child does not play with anybody when it looks at its own self through the mirror.

This is the interpretation given in the Srimad Bhagavata itself in the Dasama Skandha.

So it is God playing with God, like a child playing with itself or the Original dancing with its own reflections, connoting the spiritual dance of the cosmos, the attraction of the part towards the Whole, man's inseparability from God, and the soul's agony on account of its bereavement from the Supreme.

Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.7.

Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-7.
 ( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

We have, today, a very auspicious occasion which we call the Rasa Purnima, the full moon day in the month of Asvini, which is associated with the Lilas of Bhagavan Sri Krishna, who is Shodasa Kala Murti, Purna-Avatara, Divinity condescending to come down to the level of our physical perception. Here the glory of the Infinite is condensed or pressed into and focussed through the finitude of human perception.

That was Bhagavan Sri Krishna's Avatara in which we have a very fantastic and inscrutable phenomenon of what they call the Rasa-Lila, a sport which He is supposed to have played on the banks of the Yamuna, in Madhuvana, in the sylvan retreat of the holy Vrindavana, on the night of this particular full-moon day. This is not merely a historical or an epic event that we are narrating, contemplating and reciting, but a spiritual phenomenon, because God cannot but be spiritual. If at all …

Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.6.
 ( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

But God's manifestations are perpetual, endless and beginningless, whether we know them, see them or not, even as the other frequencies of energy like light and sound do exist whether we are able to contact them physically or not.

As I have already mentioned, when these frequencies become more and more gross, for reasons we cannot understand, we begin to see the world and feel the forces of nature.

Likewise, God sometimes can take incarnations of a type which we can physically observe and sensorily cognise, enjoy and be benefited by.

Then, the frequency comes down to the level of our cognitions and perceptions.

Such was the case of the series of Incarnations we hear of in the scriptures – Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Rama, Krishna and so on. But these are not the only Avataras of God.

Akhanda and Ananta, continuous and endless are the Avataras of God, says the Srimad …

Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.5.

Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-5

( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

The physical world is not the only world that exists in the cosmos.

It is only one level of frequency of power, energy and force, on account of which we can see only one world at a time, and not two worlds.

Neither can we see anything above us nor can we see anything below us.

We see only horizontally, and that is the physical world of the five elements – earth, water, fire, air and ether. So we know why we see only one world, though scriptures speak of many worlds.

We also know why we see only human beings and not the Devas, gods and celestials.

We cannot see them, because they are in a higher level of frequency of consciousness, even as we cannot hear radio waves through our physical ears.

We want a transistor for that, because the physical eardrum is gross compared to the subtle, ethereal waves sent by the broadcasting stations in the different parts of the world.

So all this is t…

Major Blunders of Nehru :Jawaharlal royega [Nehru will regret this].~ Sardar Patel had confided to his secretary, V Shankar, on Article-370.

Sub : Major Blunders of Nehru :
Ref : Consigning India to Economic Black HoleNehru’s Poverty-Perpetuating & Misery-Multiplying. The root-cause of all the problems  is mainly one person: NEHRU. Socialistic-bureaucratic Nightmare. During the Nehruvian era good things also happened. Given the long period of 17 years that Nehru ruled, certain good things had to happen. However, the sad point is that the achievements of the period were a very small fraction of what the potential was, that is, what could have been achieved. A third-world country like Singapore with NO natural resources went on to become a first-world country within a short span of about 15 years, while India at the end of Nehru’s 17-year rule remained a poor, miserable, third-rate, third-world country of hungry millions begging the world for food, even though it was far better placed than Singapore at the time of independence! Similarly, several other East-Asian countries that were much behind I…

Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.4.

Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-4
( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

Hence, often, manifestations of God and supernormal Avataras, which take place nevertheless, remain incomprehensible to human perceptions. But, sometimes, those invisible rays get grossened into visible forms, such as the sun's rays – then we begin to see them.
We can feel their presence and then be benefited by the power of these rays, physically speaking. We do not know how we are influenced by the cosmic rays, for example. We neither know them, nor see them, nor can understand them.
But we can see visibly how we are benefited by the rays of the sun. We feel the sun is indispensable. The sun is our life, our breath and our existence. This is because the frequencies of the light rays of the sun are co-extensive and uniform with the frequencies in which our senses operate.
We see a physical world before us because the physical particles of nature that we see with our eyes are of a si…

( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

We know very well radio waves do not clash with one another if the frequencies are different. But if all the broadcasting stations are to send messages in sound waves of the same frequency, there will be collision and confusion, and nothing will be known or understood.

Different frequencies do not collide with each other and, therefore, we have no such conflict among the broadcasting stations in the world. Likewise, different frequencies of energy in the cosmos work in different realms for different purposes. And this is one of the reasons why we are unable to come in contact with super-physical forces that operate even now under our very nose.

Hell and heaven, the seven worlds, the Svargaloka, the Satyaloka and such other supernormal levels of existence which we hear from the scriptures, are existent even here and now. But we cannot contact them, just as we cannot see with our physical …

Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.2.

Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-2
( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)


Though God's revelations are perennial, perpetual, endless and beginningless, though it is a ceaseless activity like the flow of the Ganga or the radiance of the sun, yet these manifestations are sometimes too subtle to be capable of being perceived by human eyes.

We have various gradations of frequency in light rays and sound waves, but the higher frequencies are not capable of being perceived by the eyes or heard by the ears. We have what we call cosmic rays, x-rays, beta-rays, gamma-rays, alpha-rays and many other rays, which are not perceptible forms of light rays although they are more powerful than the visible, gross light rays such as those emanating from the sun, moon, a candle or a torch light.

They are more penetrating in their action, more pervasive in their nature and more effective in the results they produce, and yet they are invisible to the physical eyes and the physical s…
