Vanisource - the complete essence of Vedic knowledge

CC Madhya 21.27

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


jānanta eva jānantu
kiṁ bahūktyā na me prabho
manaso vapuṣo vāco
vaibhavaṁ tava gocaraḥ


jānantaḥ—persons who think they are aware of Your unlimited potency; eva—certainly; jānantu—let them think like that; kim—what is the use; bahu-uktyā—with many words; na—not; me—my; prabho—O Lord; manasaḥ—of the mind; vapuṣaḥ—of the body; vācaḥ—of the words; vaibhavam—opulences; tava—Your; gocaraḥ—within the range.


“‘There are people who say, “I know everything about Kṛṣṇa.” Let them think that way. As far as I am concerned, I do not wish to speak very much about this matter. O my Lord, let me say this much. As far as Your opulences are concerned, they are all beyond the reach of my mind, body and words.’


This is a quotation from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (SB 10.14.38), spoken by Lord Brahmā after he had stolen Lord Kṛṣṇa’s calves and cowherd boys and Kṛṣṇa had exhibited His transcendental opulence by re-creating all the stolen calves and cowherd boys by His viṣṇu-mūrti expansions. After he had seen this, Brahmā offered the above prayer.
