Lord Krishna did not go to people’s houses to steal white butter
When Sant Mohinder Partap Singh Ji was about 12 years old, someone asked him,
“ People accept Lord Krishna as Bhagavan. When he was a child, Lord Krishna opened his mouth and showed his mother that the whole world was revolving in his mouth.
In the person’s mouth where the whole world is revolving, such a person is beyond the sense of taste. In fact, such a person is beyond the five senses.
Since Lord Krishna was beyond the sense of taste, why did he go to people’s houses to steal white butter?”
Sant Mohinder Partap Singh Ji, pictured above, replied,
“Lord Krishna did not go to people’s houses to steal white butter.
Lord Krishna went to people’s houses to eat their white butter and wash their karmas.”
In Indian culture, when a Spiritual Master or a holy person comes to the house, it is customary to offer this guest milk, white butter, malai ( cream from milk), ghee ( clarified butter) and yoghurt.
By offering these dairy products to holy persons, the host has some of their karmas washed away and also receive blessings from them.
