(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 09 October 2011, Melbourne, Australia, Lecture) We simplify our life just for the sake of chanting Hare Krsna. There is no other reason. We can have everything – we can have … more
HH KKS: It is important for us to understand how Krishna painstakingly becomes involved in every aspect of this material creation ..of this material universe…all the affairs. Krishna of course really has no need to do so. Is absolutely no need for Krishna to manifest the universes first of all from the pore holes of His Maha Vishnu expansion…then to enter as Garbadoksayi Vishnu to manifest this lotus flower and manifest Lord Brahma seated on this lotus flower, to have Lord Brahma act as His agent, to inspire Lord Brahma from within, to engage Lord Brahma in austerity, to instruct Lord Brahma to perform that austerity…………. all that he doesn’t have to do ..because if Krishna desires the universe is just..whusshh..manifest like that!
There is no need for a step by step manifestation of the material energy. If Krishna desires He can simply manifest the whole thing …all at once without any difficulty. But we see that Krishna is step by step manifesting the various elements from subtle to gross…out from the universe form ether is manifest and then within that ether sensual perception begins to manifest and sound is there. How then we come down to a more gross level, how then the air manifests from the Supreme Lord and that within air there is touch …so there is sound and touch …and then it comes down to fire…and like this the material elements are gradually becoming manifest until all the five sensual functions are manifest within the material elements.
So Krishna is showing how little by little everything is emanating from Him. It is simply His causeless mercy that the material creation is taking place in this way. It is simply a sign of the compassion of the Supreme Lord, it is simply a manifestation that Lord Krishna is very much interested in the conditioned soul. It is mentioned that Krishna has great interest to deliver the conditioned soul than the conditioned soul has himself to become free from this material entanglement!
