Prabhupada: Visnu?
Aravinda: Visnugada.
Prabhupada: Visnugada. You know Visnu has got the club? Sankha cakra gada padma. Gada, the club. So you are that. You have to punish all the demons.
Prabhupada: Mahendra. Maha-indra. Maha-indra is the heavenly king. Yas tu indra-gopa-maha indra. There are two kinds of indra. One is a small insect which is called indra-gopa, and beginning from this indra up to the maha-indra, the king of heaven, they are all under the reaction of fruitive activities. Yas tv indra-gopa-mahendra-maha-sva-karma-phala-bhajanam ata... Everyone is enjoying and suffering the result of his fruitive activities. Karmani nirdahati kintu ca bhakti-bhajam [Bs. 5.54]. But those who are in devotional service, they have no reaction of their work because they do not work for themselves. They are for Krsna. Therefore there is no reaction. So Mahendra means the greatest king within this universe. So because he is representative of Krsna, therefore we accept him as one of the devotees. Hare Krsna. (aside:) Don't take this. (end)
