The human incarnation is a two component system

The soul in the human incarnation is near most and dearest to God

The human being should give value to both ends and means


To establish that you will be punished for your sins and your nearness and dearness to God

cannot save you from this punishment, even the soul existing in the human incarnation is punished for its sins. No soul can be more near and dear to God than the soul existing in human incarnation. The human incarnation is a two component system of God and soul, appearing in a single phase called as the human being. It is like a copper metal appearing as copper metal only but having a trace of invisible gold in it. It appears as a single phase (pure copper) only even though it is a two component system (copper and gold). The activity of soul-component is rewarded by the God-component if the activity is good. If the activity of the soul-component is bad, God-component will punish it, even though the soul component is very near and dear. The soul is pervaded by God and hence, is near most to God. The soul is selected by God for the human incarnation since the soul is very dear to God through its excellent devotion. Therefore, the soul in the human incarnation is near most and dearest to God.


Even then, such near most and dearest soul is rewarded or punished according to its good and bad deeds respectively and there is no trace of extra consideration in the case of even such soul. Parashurama is a human incarnation consisting of both soul and God. The soul exhibited ego and jealousy towards another human incarnation called as Rama due to its predominant qualities of Rajas and Tamas. Then, the God-component existing in Rama and Parashurama, which is only one, punished the soul-component called as Parashurama. The soul in Rama is very humble due to its predominant quality of Sattvam and hence, was rewarded with continuous victory and unparallel fame. Even in the incarnation of Rama, the soul-component did a mistake. Due to over anxiety in the search of His lost wife, the soul-component killed Vali by hiding behind a tree. Rama gave very long explanation to support His action. Even though killing Vali is a justified end, the means are not justified. Rama acted as a perfect human being. The human being should give value to both ends and means. This means the means justify ends. Otherwise, there is a danger of achieving the wrong end easily through false means and justify later on both the ends and means through intellectual interpretation.



If a check is put on both ends and means, the human being will have sufficient patience to do the impartial analysis. Therefore, Rama was punished in the next birth for this sin, where Vali born as hunter, shot Him to death. If you take the human incarnation called as Krishna, He used false means like telling a lie to kill Drona to achieve justified ends in the war. Krishna always exhibited the aspect of God-component. God is omniscient and will never justify false ends. Therefore, in the case of Krishna, the false means supported by justified ends become justified means and hence, there is no sin. Krishna, being rich, stole butter from the houses of poor Gopikas. He also danced with them secretly in the mid nights. These activities look like sins, but if you analyze the background, they are not sins. In the previous birth, Gopikas were sages and prayed the Lord for salvation. In the next birth, the sages were born as Gopikas and were tested by the Lord in their intensities of bonds with wealth, children and husbands. Bonds with these three are very strong called as Eshanas. Stealing butter involves the test of their bonds with the wealth and the children, since the butter was stored for their children. Those sages, who passed the tests, got salvation. Krishna never repeated these activities after leaving the village since the sages with such specific background were confined to the village only. Therefore, all the activities of Krishna are related to the God-component only and not to the soul-component.
