Violating ethics for the sake of God

Those who understood the real background of ethics became successful in the test and violated ethics for the sake of Lord.

 

The sages, who wrote ethical scriptures, were tested by God regarding their realization of the real background of ethics. They were born as women and it is very difficult to break the ethical tradition in the case of a woman than a man. Those who understood the real background of ethics became successful in the test and violated ethics for the sake of Lord.

 

Their husbands were unhappy about this, who were their wives in their previous birth. The wives of the sages were also unhappy since their husbands were interested in God neglecting them. The same state continued in the next birth also. As husbands, they became unhappy since their wives were always interested in Krishna, who is God. Gopikas could recognize Krishna as God and hence, they could boldly violate ethics for the sake of God.

 

Narada says this point in Bhakti Sutras (Maahaatmya jnaana…). They clarified this point in their songs called as Gopika-Gitas in Bhagavatam (Nakhalu gopikaanandano bhavaan …). Since they have understood the real background of pravrutti, they did not feel for violating ethics for the sake of the Lord.
