dhīra

difference at all

the
word

dhīra

means

sober

of course and vīra means

hero

one

who
in good faith

Apart from the material platform is
the spiritual platform, where the Supreme Being enjoys Himself
with His innumerable
associates.
On that platform there is
no trace of material qualities, and therefore
that platform is called nirguna.
On
the nirguna platform there is never a
clash over the object of enjoyment. Here in the material
world there is always a clash between
different individual beings because here the proper center of
enjoyment is missed.
The real center of enjoyment is the Supreme Lord, who is
the center of the sublime
and spiritual rāsa dance. We are all
meant to join Him and enjoy life with one
transcendental interest and
without any clash. That is the highest
platform of spiritual interest, and
as soon as
one
realizes this perfect
form of oneness, there can be no
question of illusion (moha) or lamentation (śoka)
