When does God broadcast a divine message?
Man can establish contact with God through spiritual practice. Just as one feels like conveying important good or bad news to others so is the case of God. He too wishes to convey messages to man. These are called Divine messages. Kansa came to know of Shrīkrushṇa's birth through such Divine messages.
Just as only important news is broadcast over the radio, so also only very important good or bad news is conveyed in a Divine message.
How good should the news be for it to be broadcast as a Divine message?: If news about the birth of incarnations like Rama, Krushna, etc. is considered as 100% good, then news which is atleast 70% good, for instance Rama’s slaying of Ravan is broadcast as a Divine message.
How bad should the news be for it to be broadcast as a Divine message?: If news about the culmination of incarnations like Rama, Krushna, etc. is considered as 100% bad, then news which is atleast 70% bad, for instance the birth of Shishupal is broadcast.
Once H.H. Kane Maharaj humorously remarked that the broadcast of a Divine message should begin with the announcement, “This is Radio Parmartha”; parmartha means Spirituality.
