Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals :Ch-6. Part -2.
Chapter-6. Lord Sri Krishnan – The Purna-Avataram
We only express a little of our thought, a little fraction of our understanding and a partial form of our energy as would be necessitated by the nature of the particular context.
Likewise, God never manifests Himself wholly unless the occasion is of such an intensified character as to call for such a manifestation.
Historically speaking, the circumstances at the time of the advent of Bhagavan Sri Krishna were such that a complete manifestation of the Divine Energy was called for.
We have an idea of what God is and what His total energy would be like, from the point of view of our own humble imaginations, which is, of course, comparable to the idea that a frog in a well may be entertaining in its mind in regard to the Pacific Ocean.
That may be the idea we may have in our minds of the total energy of God.
Nobody can say what it is. Anyhow, we can understand what 'totality' means, at least in a grammatical sense or linguistic significance.
