The intellect could not accept the early life of Lord Krishna, his dalliance with the milkmaids, and his relationship with Radheji, his clever and manipulative advice to the Pandavas during the war of the Mahabharat, causing them to destroy their foes and to win the war.
And yet to the man of faith all this was the Leela–the working of the Will of God. Man had no right to question the Will of God, he could only accept it.
