Appendix 1 Krishna's Rasa Dance: Can We Imitate?


The rasa dance is one of the most misunderstood pastimes of Lord Krishna. Many people are bewildered about this pas­time of the Lord. Some people consider it an immoral act and so reject Krishna as the Supreme Lord. Others like the Mayavadis take advantage of the rasa lila for satisfying their own lusty pro­pensities and imitate the Lord by dancing with young girls.But what is the rasa dance? Why did the speaker of the great­est philosophical masterpiece in the world, the Bhagavad-gita, act in such an apparently mundane way? Why would the Lord, who had advented to establish religion, perform such a blatantly  irreligious act?


All these questions are clarified in our pocket book with the same title as this chapter. In case you do not have it, please refer to the book 'Krishna - the Supreme Personaity of Godhead' by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (Third Printing Jan 2001) while going through this chapter.
