ataeva krsnera 'nama', 'deha', 'vilasa'
prakrtendriya-grahya nahe, haya sva-prakasa
ataeva—therefore; krsnera—of Lord Krsna; nama—the holy name; deha—the spiritual body; vilasa—the pastimes; prakrta-indriya—by the dull senses made of matter; grahya—perceptible; nahe—not; haya—are; sva-prakasa—self-manifested.
"The holy name of Krsna, His body and His pastimes cannot be understood by blunt material senses. They are manifest independently.
The transcendental body of Krsna, His name, form, qualities, pastimes and entourage all constitute the Absolute Truth and are as good as Krsna (sac-cid-ananda-vigraha). As long as the living entity is conditioned by the three modes of material nature-(goodness, passion and ignorance)-the objects of his material senses-material form, taste, smell, sound and touch-will not help him understand spiritual knowledge and bliss. Rather, these are revealed to the pure devotee. One's material name, form and qualities are certainly different from one another. In the material world, there is no conception of absolute; however, when we come to Krsna consciousness we find that there is no material difference between Krsna's body and His names, activities and entourage.
