Selected Pastimes of Krishna: Pastimes of Lord Rsabhdeva

                                                                  Q. 1. One point of confusion for me of late has been trying to understand the pastimes of Lord Rsabhadeva in the Fifth Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam. Could you kindly explain to me what is the proper way to understand the pastimes of Lord Rsabhadeva?

                                                                  This question is very broad. Can you be more specific in what you would like to know about Lord Rsabhadeva?

                                                                  Q. How does one reconcile to the 'strange' behavior of Lord Rsabhadeva (he used to walk around naked, lay in his stool and urine etc.) to Sri Krishna's injunction in the Bhagavad Gita (3.21) stating that as great men do, general masses follow. Lord Rsabhadeva was a great king, an ideal upholder of dharma, yet why did he then set such a bewildering example?
