The Vaishnavites accept the world as a Lila, but the true Lila is elsewhere in the eternal Brindavan. All the religions which believe in the personal Godhead accept the universe as a reality, a lila or a creation made by the Will of God, but temporal and not eternal. The one that is the eternal stands above.
