Jayapatākā Swami: You see if we question why did Kṛṣṇa do this or why did He do that? We don’t have the adhikāra, right. He knows so many things we may not know. You can say why all His devotees, His associates in the Yadu dynasty they killed each other? Because He wanted them to go back with Him. So why the sons of the Pāṇḍavas were killed, that we may not know. Just like why did Devakī’s six boys get killed? So then we found that they had committed offence against Lord Brahmā. But we saw Kṛṣṇa he took the breast milk of Devakī and they also took the breast milk of Devakī. So then he brought them back to Devakī and then they were sent back to the spiritual world. So, in some cases we may know or not know why Kṛṣṇa did something. Because He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead He knows the past lives of everyone, He knows everything. That way, why Lord Kṛṣṇa does these kinds of pastimes, in certain manner that we may know or not know. But this is our faith that He is all powerful. So, we can ask why did He do that why did He do that. He doesn’t have to answer to us. He has to be answerable to us, there is no such thing. So He may reveal or may not reveal, it is up to Him. I hope that answers your question.
