When you realize yourself as completely empty and devoid of all form, this is wisdom.
When you realize yourself as the fullness of love overflowing itself without object, this is bliss.
And when you are aware of yourself incarnate in the appearance of form, this is leela.
-by Eli Jaxon-Bear
The word Leela is used because there is said to be no exact or accurate translation. It is a Sanskrit word that means ‘play’ however not as we know it. It is cosmic or divine play, as we would if we truly knew this were an illusion with no consequence but to keep us spinning around rising and falling in and out of illusory pain.
