Shiva, Krishna, Jesus all did it.. So, what’s wrong when we do it??

People recite Bhagwad Geeta for continuously 7 days, thinking it’s going to be most auspicious thing to do it on this geo. Yes, even I agree to that, but also keeping in my mind that Geeta contains all the so-called leelas played by Lord Krishna. And also contains the fact that he had 16,800 marriages, rather more than that. Then what’s wrong when a normal man like us goes for the second marriage? Suppose, if I go for even a single leela amongst the several ones He has played , I am sure to enjoy a “Hang till death “ sentence by sweet people whose families are worshipping Krishna from, I don’t know how many generations.

Kunti, mother of all Pandava’s, gave a birth to Karn , who was born from Sun . And we happily say that Kunti had gandharva vivah with Surya but are not ready to accept any of the pre-martial thingi’s in todays world. I remember a debate in my college where one of the professors gave the example of Ram, Sita and Lakshman, saying, “We do have a tradition, which follows the ideologies of such great people”. I just want to ask one question, when we can adulate Ram, why can’t we do it to Krishna ;) Don’t misunderstand me as an atheist. I very much believe in God and you can actually confirm this from the people staying around me.. But along with following other preachings from Him, I would love to follow other obscure ones too ;)
The Da Vinci Code clearly says what’s the Holy Grail is about. I don’t need to say anything. I am not saying they were wrong. I just say that “ then why is it wrong for us?? " ;)

one is recommended to read the leelas only when they have read certain other scriptures. also usually the really spiritually inclined people listen to it and not study by themselves lest things are left for one's imagiation and some arbit question comes up...

...well sreejith has a valid question..
But your are right about questioning the Bhagvada geeta

But as per my limited understanding....
our perception of the holy text is different at different times and different levels of understanding also

try to look up the real texts and understand them...
no offence but

I too agree with you. And my thinking was like that even before reading Dan Brown [:P]....

But one point : I dont think Bhagvad Geeta contains any Leela. It just depicts Karma and Dharma : Pros and Cons

You have a good question .But know one thing that Krsna even lifted GOvardhan Hill then why don't we .
This obviously is foolish. What I want to say is when you read some scripture read it completely don't just read a piece of it and start speculation. Moreover everyone human being senses are imperfect and what he percieves to be the truth may not be the one. So he has to approach a bonafide authority who comes in the disciplic succession of the Lord Himself who is Defect less and the whole purpose of his stating is maintained. For answering more questions U can try this book
"Perfect Questions and Perfect Answers" by His Divine Grace A.C Bhakti Vedanta Swami Prabhupada.This is published by ISKCON and u can find it in any of the ISKCON temples nearby. This books are not just leelas, they are perfect discussions of logic and philosophy where u will see how a bonafide authority can give u answers or explain to you about the
Scriptures. This is my sincere request as I have experienced. Moreover dont expect me to be some old man giving some foolish advice. I pursue my BTech in NIT Warangal CSE III year. I hail from HYD too. So please what Ive told and definetly you find the difference. You can mail me for furthur queries
