Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals :Ch-6. Part -5.
Chapter-6. Lord Sri Krishna – The Purna-Avataram
All this teaching is like pouring water on a rock.
It has made no impression upon us.
The infinite is the Fullness, the Purna; and the finite is the Apurna.
We individuals, the Jivatmas and everything in this world are Apurna, finites, but we enshrine the Infinite in our bosom.
And the manifestation of the Infinite in the finite, the birth of God in man is possible, practicable and inevitable when the obstructions to Its manifestation are obviated totally.
To speak from the point of view of the historical life which Bhagavan Sri Krishna is said to have lived thousands of years ago – let alone the spiritual or the mystical – we see a wholeness manifest in Him.
His life was a fullness right from childhood up to the maturity of life. He was a completeness in every respect, even in his babyhood or childhood, a completeness in his adolescence, a completeness in his youth and maturity.
He was a fullness of bodily perfection, a fullness of understanding, a fullness of social relationship and political statesmanship, and a fullness in His own Being.
This has been revealed even in His outward physical personality – a beauty and a charm that mankind has never seen.
