Question: Srivas was Narada Muni. Narada Muni was a naishtika brahmachari. How did he accept the role as a grihastha in Gaura Lila?
Guru Maharaj: You see, Narada Muni is a liberated soul. So when they come down to participate in the pastime of the Lord they can accept any role. So he came down as Srivas and he accepted the role. So that is in Gaura Lila. So it is another birth and not the same. So like Lord Brahma, he came down as Haridas Thakura. Brihaspathi, he came down as Vaasudev Sarvabhauma. So they came and participated. So what if they were in the other lila? Now they have no connection. That is how the Lilas work. Once you are in a lila, you are under the control of Yoga maya. So you are in that Lila until you are required.
