Krsna, always God, lifts Govardhana Hill

    Posted on October 24, 2014

You cannot become God if you are not God. Krsna... Krsna was God when He was three months old on the lap of His mother. Krsna was God when He was four months old. Krsna was God when He was seven years old. Now we are chanting, jaya radha-madhava kunja-bihari gopi-jana-ballabha giri-bara-dhari. Krsna was gopi-jana-ballabha. He was always meant for pleasing the gopis, but that does not mean that he was not God. Giri-bara-dhari. When gopis were in danger, incessant rain in Vrndavana, He immediately lifted the whole
Govardhana Parvata. Immediately showed: "Here is, I am. I am God. I can give you protection." Giri-bara-dhari. One side, gopi-jana-ballabha, just like ordinary boy He is pleasing the gopis by His joking behavior, but that does not mean He is not God. So one imitates the joking behavior of Krsna, but one cannot imitate lifting the Govardhana Hill. That is not possible.

(Srila Prabhupada, speaking on Bhagavad-gita 9.11--Calcutta, June 30, 1973)
