    One need not run away from the problems

    The devotee can become the Lord in all aspects except the aspect of creation, maintenance and destruction of universe. The other aspects are not at all disturbed due to absence of the last aspect. Suppose a producer of a film is enjoying His own picture. Though you are not the producer, you can enjoy the cinema in equal status with the producer. You can enjoy just like the producer because you are enjoying the same cinema without taking the laborious efforts of its production. Therefore you should not say that since he is the producer, he is enjoying.

    People often say that since the human incarnation is Lord, He can enjoy the tragic scenes of the cinema. Do you mean that the producer only can enjoy the tragic scenes of the cinema? Any spectator can enjoy the tragic scenes of the cinema. The only requirement for such continuous enjoyment of comic and tragic scenes of the cinema is only the realization of the nature of the cinema. If you know that the cinema is unreal, you can enjoy even the tragic scene.

    Whether the spectator is a producer of the film or an ordinary human being the requirement for the continuous enjoyment of the cinema is only the knowledge about the unreality of the cinema. Therefore you need not run away from the problems of the life and leaving the theater is committing suicide. Therefore do not say that Rama, Krishna etc are God and so could stand unperturbed during the difficult times in life. The argument is completely wrong and what you lack is the knowledge of the reality of this creation (forms and feelings) and not the producer-ship of this creation.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
