: “Leela” (also lila) is Sanskrit for "play", or "sport". In many religious and Spiritual traditions, all of conditionally manifested existence is regarded to be the Leela (or the Play, Sport, or Free Activity) of the Divine Person. "Leela" also means the Awakened Play of a Realized Adept (of any degree), through which he or she mysteriously Instructs and Liberates others and Blesses the world itself. By extension, a Leela is an instructive and inspiring story of such an Adept’s Teaching and Blessing Play. As theological term leela (lila) is mentioned for the first time in the Vedanta Sutra of Badarayana (2.1.33).
