Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals : 11.18.
Chapter-11.The Sport of the Infinite-18.
( Rasa-Lila message given on the 22nd of October, 1972.)
All this weeping and crying of the soul is called Samsara.
That is what we are experiencing.
Restless is our life, and pitiable is the existence of man as long as he has not understood the meaning of his asking and what he asks for.
Our life has become wretched merely because of the fact that we have not understood even the meaning of our own asking.
We ask for something, but we have understood it to be something else!
To rectify this error of man's distorted perception, Bhagavan Veda Vyasa gave us this scripture in the form of the immortal biography of the Immortal Man, the Super-Man of the East, whose eternal Sport we observe and celebrate on the most auspicious Rasa Purnima.
Blessed be this day! Blessed be the devotees, seekers of Truth and aspirants who search for God and rest not until He is attained. May the infinite grace of the Almighty be upon us all!
