(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 03 May 2013, Radhadesh, Belgium, Free lecture)
It’s not enough to say that God is merciful. We have to qualify that mercy. The mercy is not only about pulling us out of the material world, but the mercy is also about giving us the spiritual world and giving us an eternal activity and eternal engagement.
And here we see something about the eternal engagement. When Krsna comes to the material world and performs all these pastimes, then he shows us a bit of the eternal engagement.
