Kṛṣṇa is Pūrṇa-brahma—Nanda-nandana—who plays the flute and takes the cows out to graze. He is not an ordinary boy. He is the root of all manifestations. Kṛṣṇa came as Rāmacandra and Nṛsiṁhadeva. Hanumānajī, Śaṅkarajī, Durgājī, and everyone else are His servants and maidservants. There is no one who exists separately from Him. There is nothing separate from Him. Therefore, He is Sanātana, eternal. He is the Supreme Eternal Being among all eternal beings.
