sruti-purana kahethe Vedic literatures and the Puranas confirm; krsneraof Lord Krsna; cit-sakti-vilasaactivities of spiritual potencies; taha nahi maninot accepting that; pandita kare upahasaso-called scholars play jokes without perfect understanding.
"Vedic literatures, the Upanisads, the Brahma-sutra and the Puranas all describe the activities of the spiritual potency of the Lord. If one cannot accept the personal activities of the Lord, he jokes foolishly and gives an impersonal description.
In the Vedic literatures, including the Puranas, there are full descriptions of the spiritual potency of Krsna. All the pastimes of the Lord are eternal, blissful and full of knowledge, just as the form of Krsna Himself is eternal, blissful and full of knowledge (sac-cid-ananda-vigraha). Unintelligent people with a poor fund of knowledge compare their temporary bodies to the spiritual body of Krsna, and by such foolishness they try to understand Krsna as one of them. Avajananti mam mudha manusim tanum asritam. Bhagavad-gita (9.11) points out that foolish people think of Krsna as one of them. Not understanding His spiritual potency, they simply decry the personal form of the Absolute Truth, foolishly thinking of themselves as jnanis cognizant of the complete truth. They cannot understand that just as the material energy of the Lord has a variety of activities, the spiritual energy has variety also. They consider activities in devotional service the same as activities in material consciousness. Under such a wrong impression, they sometimes dare joke about the spiritual activities of the Lord and His devotional service.
