You cannot bind God in any rituals

To overcome from all kinds of ritualistic nonsense of religion, Shri Krishna’s advent was there. It was a very important advent but I don’t know how many people understand that. He came to show that its all ‘Leela’, it’s all the play of God. What is there to be serious? What is there to be ritualistic? You cannot bind God in any rituals. That’s why He came on this earth; to tell you that you should not try to bind yourself by rituals which are nonsensical.

These were His teachings, so many years back, He taught this six thousand years back. But still, if you see in every religion, there are so many rituals going on. So when the incarnations died, people started rituals; funny stuff, even when Shri Krishna died, they didn’t know what to do now. Because He said, “no more rituals… just play Holi, be happy, joyous, dance and sing”, that’s what He said. Now what to do? Now if He has said so. So they started a new thing, “let’s make it a romantic stuff.” Human beings know how to make everything perverse. Nobody can beat them in this. So they made him look like a very romantic personality, romancing with Radha. ‘Ra-dha’, ‘Ra’ is energy; ‘dha’ is the one who has sustained energy. And yet they show romances with Her…. She was Mahalakshmi Herself. They show His relationship with Mahalakshmi as if they were husband and wife. So there were also some poets who started describing them as husband and wife, and all kinds of nonsense.

In divine relationship there is nothing like husband and wife. There is the power which is potential feminine energy and the power that is kinetic masculine energy. There is no such relationship that exists as human beings try to make it. Because human beings have a habit to bring all the Divine incarnations to their own levels. As you have seen, the Best are the Greeks, who brought all the great incarnations to their own levels. In the same way they could not do much with Shri Krishna so they said “alright, make him a romantic personality that will suit us.”
