One specialty of Lord Kṛṣṇa, and also of Bhagavān Lord Rāmacandra, is that when They appear in this world They never look beyond the age of Kiśora. When Kṛṣṇa was in Kurukṣetra, for example, He was 125 years old, but He did not have a mustache or beard, and this is one specialty of bhagavata-tattva.
The symptoms of His Kiśora age are described in Śrī Ujjvala-nīlamaṇi, but this is such a confidential subject that it is very rare to find someone who can and will explain it, and it’s also very rare to find someone who can understand it. In whatever position Kṛṣṇa is situated, whether He is in Vṛndāvana, Mathurā, Dvārakā, or anywhere else, He is always sarva-jña—He knows everything. If one is a śaraṇāgata-bhakta, fully surrendered, Kṛṣṇa hears his prayers.
