The World is a Leela
To guide humanity and raise its standards, Great Souls incarnate not only as Spiritual Guides but also as scientists, artists, writers and leaders. Rumi, Lao Tzu, Einstein, Martin Luther King, the ancient Indian Sages or Rishis, Guruji Krishnananda, Gandhiji, Valmiki, there are many such famous and lesser known names. William Shakespeare was undoubtedly one of such giants.
His quote – “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players…” reminds me of something similar mentioned in the Indian belief system – this world is God’s Leela (Play).
