Why “Pastimes” is a Misnomer

The thirty third verse of the Brahma-samhita, chapter five, has been interpreted by Bhaktivinoda Thakura to convey the following: “In the transcendental realm there is no past and future, but only the unalloyed and immutable present time. In the transcendental sphere there is no distinction between the object and its qualities and no such identity as is found in the limited mundane region. Hence, those qualities that seem to be apparently contradictory in the light of mundane conception, limited by time and space, exist in agreeable and dainty concordance in the spiritual realm.”
