The Vedas and scriptures (including the Narad Bhakti Darshan) and also Saints have said that there is no difference between God and His Saints. In some places in the scriptures, God has even regarded His devotee Saint as greater than Him. How astonishing!

Shri Krishna said to Uddhava (Bhagavatam, 11.14.16): “When My Saints walk on the earth, I secretly walk behind them.” Uddhava wondered, “Why do You secretly follow them? It must be to protect them.” Shri Krishna said, “No, Uddhava, I do this so their foot dust may fall on Me and purify Me. That is how loving My Saints are to Me.”

After God-realisation, God bestows all His powers on the bhakt Saint. For this reason, the Saint’s actions also become divine. In other words, God Himself performs the Saint’s actions; the Saint from his side does nothing. Has a soul attained God-realisation? If so, now he does nothing. And why should he do anything? He has attained everything.

When a pot is placed in water, while it is filling it makes a gurgling sound - bak, bak, bak . . . When it is completely full, it is silent. You can keep on dunking it under the water, but now it won’t make a sound. There is some water that is naturally mixed in butter. When butter is heated to make ghee, it also makes a sound pat, pat, pat . . . The reason for this is the water is being cooked off. When the butter is fully cooked and it becomes ghee, then this sound comes to an end. Now, no matter how much you heat the ghee, it may burn but it won’t make a sound. Yet we have seen when people cook with ghee that it makes sounds. When does this happen? When you place raw dough in it. When this becomes a fully cooked puri, then the ghee once again is silent. If you put more raw dough in, then it will again make noise. The ghee itself is not making any noise; the ghee is causing the sound to come from the raw dough as it is cooking.

Arjuna and Hanuman killed thousands, but this wasn’t their own decision. They were following the order of Lord Krishna and Lord Rama for the salvation of the world. Both God and His Saints have performed great activities in the world. Prahlada ruled this world for 300 million years. They were great God-realised Saints like this who performed worldly-looking actions like ours, but unlike our actions, their actions were not worldly at all.

Shri Krishna had 16,108 wives and with each wife he had ten children. These children in turn also had children. But in the midst of this, Shri Krishna had no attachment. In the end, even though the whole Yadav clan was destroyed, Shri Krishna remained ever blissful. How could lust, anger, greed, delusion and jealousy remain in a Saint’s heart after God-realisation? If a Saint appears to exhibit these qualities after God-realisation, it is only for the spiritual upliftment of the souls, and not for himself.

Our material intellects cannot understand this secret of a Saint’s actions. Why not? Look, if you slap someone, first you became very angry. Then an argument followed. Your anger escalated until it’s out of control and this ends with a slap. But Arjuna killed millions in the Mahabharat War with no anger at all. Instead, everywhere he only saw Shri Krishna. Hanuman saw only his beloved Lord Rama everywhere in the world. We think, “How did they do it? I could never do that!” Yes, it is true that you couldn’t, but does that mean there is nothing beyond what you experience? You are bound by maya; Saints are beyond maya. You have limited powers and Saints have unlimited powers.

For this reason, in uncountable births we have seen uncountable descensions of Supreme God and in spite of this we said, “This Krishna is nothing but a loafer. Day and night He keeps traipsing after girls.” When we saw a Saint like Surdas we said, “He visits a prostitute and afterwards he goes here and there playing his tanpura and chanting ‘Hare Rama Hare Rama!” Now that  these divine personalities have left this world, we worship them. While they were here, we tried to measure their divinity with our material intellect.
