Rasa dance on Rasa Purnima

Final night of kartik month, the Rasa Purnima. When Lord Krsna Performed Rasa dance with gopis approximately five thousand years ago. It is the most confidential part of Krishna’s pastimes (Lila). How do we understand this pastime? Is this a type of just boy and girl dancing as we have experienced? We understand this pastimes also in that level, because we don’t have any better understanding. When we don’t have better understanding on spiritual qualities of the lord, it becomes difficult to understand such pastimes and we end up misunderstanding such pastimes and thus imitate in our lives.

This article doesn’t contain anything about this pastimes, because neither the writer is qualified to jot down such an elevated pastimes which is on spiritual realm by the lord, nor the readers are qualified to understand it out of what they had generally experienced in mundane world. Spiritually elevated devotee of lord Krishna, who try to spread the lords message never discuss these pastimes openly in general public in any kind of Bhagwat saptah or something. Chaitanya mahaprabhu never discussed the dealings of lord Krishna with gopis openly in public. This are very confidential discussion to be discussed only within pure devotees of lord Krishna. It is mentioned in Caitanya-caritamrta Madhya-lila 13.24, Purport:

"We cannot understand the affairs of the spiritual world on the basis of our experience in the material world. The Lord's pastimes with the gopis are therefore misunderstood by mundane scholars and word-wranglers. The parakiya-rasa of the spiritual world should not be discussed, except by one who is very advanced in pure devotional service. The parakiya-rasa in the spiritual world and that in the material world are not comparable."

Lord krishna’s pastimes with gopis is mentioned in 10 Canto of Srimad Bhagwatam. One is recommended to not directly jump into that section and read. Otherwise people will end up misunderstanding Krishna, who is supreme lord himself and try to imitate his confidential pastimes, which is even more abominable. Thus one should first try to understand God by Reading Bhagwat Gita first, which is undergraduate study in understanding the spiritual science, then should Jump into Srimad Bhagwatam 1st canto and gradually progressing towards 10th canto. Srimad Bhagwatam is considered Post Graduate study.

Thus hearing Krishna pastimes from unauthorised source would not help us spiritually indeed it will increase our lusty desire. Sukadeva Gosvami concludes the episode of the rasa-lila in Srimad Bhagwatam by pointing out that if a person hears from the right source about the pastimes of Kṛṣṇa, who is Viṣṇu Himself, and the gopis, who are expansions of His energy, then he will be relieved of the most dangerous type of disease, namely lust. Generally when people hear about Rasa-Lila from unauthorised person, people become more and more implicated in their lusty desire.
