Shri Datta Swami

Why did God accept the proposal of sages to embrace Him and made them Gopikas?

[Ms. Laxmi Thrylokya asked: Swami, it is said that man proposes and God disposes. But when Sages wanted to embrace Lord Rama, He accepted the proposal and made them Gopikas. Isn't this incident standing against the first statement? Please enlighten me.]

Swami replied:- This statement belongs to souls entangled in the worldly life without caring for the spiritual life. God always tries to preach the worldly people that they shall not be so much blind about worldly achievements behind which they are constantly running like mad dogs. In order to reduce the over worldly activity God disposes the proposals of human being. This saying shall not be applied at all to the spiritual field.
