श्रोत्रं चक्षुः स्पर्शनं च रसनं घ्राणमेव च।
अधिष्ठाय मनश्चायं विषयानुपसेवते।।15.9।।

Through the medium of prakriti, the spiritual substratum pervading physical existence, by the gunas or three modes of material nature, the jiva or embodied being experiences the instruments of the senses in pursuance of enjoyment. Like when one plays upon the stringed vina it is played factually for the Supreme Lords pleasure alone. But the Supreme Lord enjoys only those attributes and qualities which are auspicious and righteous. What is inauspicious and unrighteous is only enjoyable by the demons and those who are evil. Such inauspiciousness and unrighteousness is never pleasing to Lord Krishna. This can be understood by the following analogy. Darkness is existing but the moment the sun appears darkness disappears so the sun has no opportunity to experience darkness. In the same way the Supreme Lord never has an occasion to experience what is not auspicious and righteous. Now begins the summation. The Supreme Lord Krishna enjoys through the senses the auspicious, propitious activities ordained in Vedic scriptures. Although the resplendent Supreme Lord is completely blissful and satified in every way He experinces these things like participating in a sporting manner.
