Aprakrita Vastu is beyond our material limit

February 5, 2023

Material people thinking that blood came out of Śrī Kṛṣṇa´s body at the battlefield of Kurukṣetra. They also believe that blood came out of Śrīman Nityananda Prabhu´s head by the direct attack of Jagai Madhai. People can think of such unusual bloodshed possible from the aprākṛta body of Bhagavan according to different kind of pastimes exhibited by Him, but they don’t know the secrecy of such aprākṛta līlā. Parāt paraḥkileswara Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu clearly told to Sanatan Gosāi (as per Caitanya-caritāmṛta Śrī Sanantan śikṣā) that Śrī Kṛṣṇa´s disappearance līlā or the abduction līlā of Kṛṣṇa´s Mahishis–that all are full of Maya (maya–moye), not at all real. To make fool of those demonic character people (material people), to deprive them—this was the magical exhibition of Maya. Those who are devoid of bhakti—they are bound to believe that way. That is why we must depend upon śrauta-panthā (hari-kathā or śrauta-vani). Srauta-vani which coming out of the Lotus mouth of śuddha Guru-Vaiṣṇava can be called as aprākṛta sabdhā brahma– which can help us to develop our faith in aprākṛta siddhanta vichars, because we know that —

aprakrita vastu nahe prakrta gocar

veda puranete ei kahe nirantar                                 (C.C.Madhya-9.195)

Perception of spiritual objects (aprākṛtavastu) is not within the range of the material senses and those are beyond the range of our material mind. The Vedas and the Purāṇas proclaim this fact repeatedly.

Also, we can know from Śrī Bhaktirasāmṛta sindhu written  by Śrīla Rūpa Gosvamipad a quotation collected from Mahābhārata Udyoga Parva.

acintyāḥ khalu ye bhāvā

na tāṁs tarkeṇa yojayet

prakṛtibhyaḥ paraṁ yac ca

tad acintyasya lakṣaṇam                  (Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu 2.5.93)

 “Anything transcendental, which is beyond material nature (limit) is called inconceivable, whereas arguments are all mundane. Since mundane arguments cannot touch transcendental subject matters, so one should not try to understand transcendental subjects through mundane arguments.”
