Radhanath Swami on The Lord's Pastimes

It is described that when a cat is about to kill a mouse, usually a cat just does not simply kill the mouse because just killing is not fun. They like to play with it first, they catch it and then they let it go and then they catch it again and let it go and then they catch it and sometimes they make the mouse think that it is going to defeat the cat and get away. But it is all play, and finally when all things are said and done, the mouse is dead. Somehow or other for some reason people in this material world have a very deep tendency to be excited and entertained by violence and anger. God is so merciful and kind that He wants to attract all of our minds, so therefore He performs pastimes with the most incredible war stories that seem so inconceivable. But nobody could ever defy them - they reach beyond anybody's imagination. No one can never put on such a production. And someone has put them down in writing simply for the sake of putting excitement into the Lord's pastimes, just to attract our minds.

  1. It is very difficult to control the mind.But Krishna gives all chances to think of Him. Fortunate soul tries to think of Him. Fortunate soul is one who follows a saintly person. All glories to HH Radhanatha Swami Maharaja.

    Sure, nobody can claim to produce such an action packed film or drama as the lord does in his divine pastimes when he descends to this material realm.

  9. The purpose of Lord descending to this world and performing pastimes is to attract minds of the people of this world.No one can imitate these pastimes but it is our duty to hear them from pure devotees and take necessary lessons from it.
