Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-6.

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 Bhagavata Mahapurana.

Like the infinite rays of the sun, like the infinite drops of the ocean and like the infinite particles of space, are the infinite manifestations of God.

Notwithstanding the fact that they are infinite in their essence, they are limited in their operations and manifestations when they come to a specific frequency of revelation.

These are the visible incarnations like Christ, Buddha and Krishna and such supernormal beings, whom we call supermen, Atimanavas or Avataras.
