Krsna Sometimes Manufactures Illusions

“Maya means ‘magic,’ and it also means ‘material nature,’ the source of illusion in the created world. Krsna is the source of maya in both senses of the word. In Bhima’s opinion, Krsna is too unpredictable and deceptive to trust. Sometimes Krsna acts just for His personal enjoyment, sometimes He manufactures illusions out of mere curiosity, and sometimes He uses His wit to intentionally bewilder His devotees.” (Excerpt from Brhad Bhagavatamrta, Chapter Five, page 457)
