Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.14.

Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-14.
  ( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)

Again to reiterate, impossible it is to describe it. Yet it gives us an idea as to what God is and how God works and what the goal of our life is. The goal of the soul is unity with God, and restless is the soul until it has a vision of God. Though it is true that it is incapable of being understood, it is not impossible of attainment, because that is the only attainment which the soul is craving for.

 The insatiable longings and the endless desires of the human mind are demonstration enough of the fact that God cannot be contained in the human mind. What the soul asks for is God and not the tinsels of the earth. We are not asking for food, clothing, shelter, warmth or protection. The soul is asking for nothing short of God.

But this longing of the soul for the Eternal manifests itself as distorted asking and demands for temporal objects, which are the cravings of the soul in its incompetence to comprehend its own longings and aspirations.
