Society and Spirituality: The 3 Paradigms of Interaction with the society in Hinduism

    @ Desh

    Ram was Maryada Purshottam and Krishna is called Lila Purshottam, the word Lila means playful, where he played with Gopis and others alike, and thus was known by the name Lilathar.

    When you said that Krishna and Shiva both mocked the society, I don’t agree with that part, they didn’t mock it, they just didn’t embrace it. My father and his father before him are and were alcoholic, I don’t drink, thus, I didn’t embrace it. simple.

    BTW nicely written. 🙂

    Desh, I completely agree with the crux here. Balance automatically comes into play when we start valuing the purpose of our lives rather than getting swayed away by the man-made societal norms.
