Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals :Ch-6. Part -11.
Chapter-6. Lord Sri Krishna – The Purna-Avataram
A total transformation, a transfiguration of all values is brought about in His activity and life, and also in His teachings, so that His life and teachings are a sort of a superhuman presentation before us.
And we know how difficult it is for a human being to confront a superhuman presentation of any kind.
But, this is the ideal before us and this is our goal. Whether or not we are able to understand it, this is what the life of Sri Krishna tells us.
The Bhagavadgita, the cream of His teaching, also conveys to us that things are not what they seem to our senses.
This is what we learn from His life also.
There is something quite different from what we sense, feel, think and understand as valuable.
This is the Truth behind things for which His life and teachings stood and which He Himself embodied in His own life.
This is the message for us today, which we should try to imbibe into our lives by invoking His grace and putting forth honest efforts.
As the Gita concludes, where Krishna and Arjuna are together, i.e., where Divine Grace and human effort go together, there is prosperity, victory, happiness and firm polity.
