Prabhupāda: Wherever there is sun, there is sunlight, immediately. Where there is light, immediately there is illumination. Just like a drop of poison. You just take a drop of poison; as soon as it touches the tongue, immediately it expands all over the body and it make the whole blood, water, dead. How it expands, a small grain of potassium cyanide? Simply a grain, immediately, second. If a material thing can have so much effect immediately, the spiritual atom cannot do that? That is called science.

Similarly, the biggest spiritual identity, Kṛṣṇa, He can become all-pervading. We are particle spiritual, spark. We have got limited power to expand . . . yena sarvam idaṁ tatam (BG 2.17), and become immediately expanded throughout My body. And He is unlimitedly big. So how much His consciousness is distributed all over the universe, sarva-jña.

Therefore Kṛṣṇa is not abhijña. Svarāṭ. Janmādy asya yato 'nvayād itarataś cārtheśv abhijñaḥ svarāṭ (SB 1.1.1). This example is nice. A grain of potassium cyanide is sufficient. There is no taste. The chemical characteristic of potassium cyanide, they have not mentioned the taste, because as soon as there is taste—finished. They cannot . . . (laughter) He cannot say whether it is pungent or sweet. (laughter) finished. So there is no taste. (pause) (break) (end)
