Hare Krsna. One river, 2 banks, 6 boats, 2 birds, and a spot on the camera lens that just may be the setting sun. But because the river is the holy Yamuna in Sri Vrindavana dham, it nevertheless is a sweet scene.

Within that scene place Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who wanders along the banks of the lotus-filled Yamuna River with His most intimate associates. His focus is His own pleasure, and due to the special quality of the Vrajabasi’s loving service to Him, He is forced by that love to award them pleasure even more exalted than His own.

“That is the real picture of God. The Vrndavana-lila of Krsna is the perfect presentation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He’s simply enjoying. And all the inhabitants of Vrndavana, the gopis, the cowherd boys, Maharaja Nanda, Yasoda, everyone is simply anxious how to make Krsna happy.

They have no other business. The inhabitants of Vrndavana have no other business than to satisfy Krsna, and Krsna has no other business.

Yasoda-nandana brajajana-ranjana.

He’s acting as the little son of Yasoda, and His only business is how to please the inhabitants of Vrndavana.

Yasoda-nandana brajajana-ranjana. And yamuna-tira-vana-cari.

And He’s wandering in the forest of Vrndavana on the bank of the Yamuna.

This is the actual picture of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. But Brahma, Indra, big, big demigods, they are also bewildered. They are sometimes mistaken, that “How this cowherd boy can become the Supreme Personality of Godhead?” Just like some of us think like that.

But those who are thinking like that, for them also, there is manifestation of Krsna’s supremacy. Brajajana-ballabha giri-vara-dhari. Although he’s engaged in pleasing the inhabitants of Vraja, but when there is need, He can lift up the Govardhana Hill — at the age of seven years. Or He can kill the Putana at the age of three months.

And so many demons used to visit daily. Krsna used to go with the calves and cows, with His friends in the forest, and every day Kamsa used to send one kind of demon to kill them — Aghasura, Bakasura, Dhenukasura, so many.

So although Krsna is playing just like a cowherd boy, His supremacy as the Supreme Personality of Godhead is never absent. That is God.”

(Lecture by Srila Prabhupada on Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Gorakhpur, February 17, 1971)
