Read the following passage carefully:

The Lord administers the world through the laws of material nature – gross, such as the law of gravitation and subtle, such as the law of karma. But when predominance of materialism over spirituality disturbs the universal order, the Lord descends ‘to deliver the pious, annihilate the miscreants and re-establish divine principles,” says the Bhagavadgita.
Krishna descends not just to maintain law, but to awaken love. The love that our heart longs for through relationships with various persons, finds fulfilment only when it is reposed in the Supreme. When we love Krishna, our love is never interrupted, never betrayed, never let down, never disappointed.
