Even the greatest living entity in the universe, Lord Brahma, he is not independent to simply do his own creation of this material world. He doesn’t know what to do. He doesn’t know how to control the material nature, nor how to create it. Therefore, he’s… he doesn’t even know who he is. He’s completely bewildered when he appears, so finally, the divine word tapa came out of the akasa, or out of the… out of the uh, silence, and then he understood he had to do austerities to realize the sou… his source, and then Krishna revealed to him how to create the material worlds, how to create the living entities, etc.
So, there’s nobody in this material world who is completely independent. That there… everyone, they’re gaining their idea how to do whatever they want to do from Krishna. The Bhagavad-gita describes smrtir jnanam apohanam ca, that intelligence how to do something, even if it’s a nefarious action, or a good action, ultimately how is that ability to remember or to conceive, that is all given by Krishna. The living entity has the desire, so then Krishna said, “Alright.”. In due course, if the person is deserving, He allows the person to fulfill that desire.
Even the desire is uh, not a proper desire in terms of morality or something, but still, the desirings of Krishna helps them in due course, but they have to suffer the karma. He’s not responsible. He’s not inspiring to do these things. Rather, they want to do, so since they’re desiring repeatedly, so finally He gives them the intelligence how to do what they want to do.
