If God is All-powerful, Why You are Curtailing His Power, that He Cannot Come? God comes for two business: to give protection to the devotee and to kill the demons. So for killing the demons, He does not require to come. He has got immense power. Simply by His indication, any person can be killed. There is sufficient power, Durgadevi. But He comes for His devotee, because His devotee, he is very much anxious. He is always seeking protection of the Supreme. So because the devotee will be satisfied by seeing Him, therefore He comes. That is the (indistinct). Because the devotees are always feeling separation, just to give him relief, incarnation of God comes. Pralaya-payodhi jale dhṛtavān asi vedam (Śrī Daśāvatāra Stotra 1). Different incarnations come just to give relief to the devotees. Otherwise He has no business. There in the India, there is a class of Hindus, they called so, but actually they are known as Arya-samaj. Arya-samaj. The Arya-samaj's opinion is, "Why God should come? He is so great; why He should come here?" The incarnation, they do not believe. The Muslims also, they do not believe, incarnations. They also press the same plea, that "Why God should come? Why He should appear like human being?" But they do not know, neither they can answer this question, "Why God would not come?" They say that God cannot come. But if I put the question: "Why God cannot come?"; what is the answer? If God is all-powerful, why you are curtailing His power, that He cannot come? What kind of God is He? God is under your law, or you are under God's law? So, this is the difference between lover of God and the demons. The demons cannot think. They think that "Maybe there is some God. He must be aloof, formless." Because he has got the experience of this form: limited. So therefore Māyāvādī philosopher says that when God comes, the impersonal—He takes the form of māyā. That is called Māyāvādī. They actually do not believe in God. Impersonalism, śūnyavāda. Nirviśeṣa-śūnyavādi. Some of them are nirviśeṣa: "Yes, there may be God, but He has no form." And Māyāvādī…Both of them are Māyāvādī, śūnyavādi. The Buddhists and the Śaṅkarites, so they do not believe. But we, Vaiṣṇava, we know how the atheists are cheated. Sammohāya sura-dviṣām (SB 1.3.24). Lord Buddha came to cheat the atheist. The atheists do not believe in God, so Lord Buddha said, "Yes, you are right. There is no God. But you just try to hear me." But he is God. So this is cheating. “You don’t believe in God, but believe in me.” "Yes, sir, I shall believe." And we know that he is God. (laughter) Keśava dhṛta-buddha-śarīra jaya jagadīśa hare (Gītā Govinda, Śrī Daśāvatāra Stotra 9). Just see (indistinct).
