Krishna is not the Lord. He is not an Avatar. He was a passionate cowherd who lustfully played with the Gopis.

What was the age of Lord Krishna at that time? Was He not a boy of seven? Can there
be a tinge of passion in Him? Who can understand the secret of Rasa Lila and Madhurya Bhav,
the culmination of the highest Bhakti, Atmanivedan or total surrender to the Lord? It is only
Narada, Suka Deva, Chaitanya, Mira, Hafiz, Ramananda and the Sakhis or Gopis that can
understand the secret of Rasa Lila. The Sakhis only are qualified for this. Did He not play
miracles when he was a boy? Did He not show that He was the Avatara of Lord Hari? Did He
not show Virat Darshan to His mother when He was a baby? Did He not kill the Kaliya serpent
by standing on its hood? Did He not multiply Himself as countless Krishnas? Who were the
Gopis? Were they not God-intoxicated beings who saw Krishna alone everywhere, who saw
themselves also as Krishna? The sound of the Murali could throw them into a state of divine
ecstasy or holy communion. They were above body consciousness.
