TEXT 187
raya kahe,--krsna haya 'dhira-lalita'
nirantara kama-krida--yanhara carita
raya kaheRamananda Raya replied; krsna—Lord Krsna; haya—is; dhira-lalita—a person who can keep his girlfriend always in subjugation by different qualities; nirantara—constantly; kama-krida—pastimes of sexual enjoyment; yanhara—of whom; carita—the character.
Raya Ramananda replied, "Lord Krsna is dhira-lalita, for He can always keep His girlfriends in a subjugated state. Thus His only business is enjoying sense gratification.
We should always remember that Krsna's sense gratification is never to be compared to the sense gratification of the material world. As we have already explained, Krsna's sense gratification is just like gold. The perverted reflection of that sense gratification found in the material world is just like iron. The purport is that Krsna is not impersonal. He has all the desires that are manifest in the perverted reflection within this material world. However, the qualities are different-one is spiritual, and the other is material. Just as there is a difference between life and death, there is a difference between spiritual sense gratification and material sense gratification.
