vibhinnamsa jiva--tanra saktite ganana
sva-amsa-vistara—the expansion of His personal forms; catuh-vyuha—His quadruple form; avatara-gana—the incarnations; vibhinna-amsa—His separated forms; jiva—the living entities; tanra—His; saktite—in the category of potency; ganana—calculating.
"Expansions of His personal self-like the quadruple manifestations of Sankarsana, Pradyumna, Aniruddha and Vasudeva-descend as incarnations from Vaikuntha to this material world. The separated expansions are living entities. Although they are expansions of Krsna, they are counted among His different potencies.

Although the living entities are Krsna's parts and parcels, they are prakrti, not purusa. Sometimes prakrti (a living entity) attempts to imitate the activities of the purusa. Due to a poor fund of knowledge, living entities conditioned in this material world claim to be God. They are thus illusioned. A living entity cannot be on the level of a visnu-tattva, or the Personality of Godhead, at any stage; therefore it is ludicrous for a living entity to claim to be God. Advanced spiritualists would never accept such a thing. Such claims are made to cheat ordinary, foolish people. The Krsna consciousness movement declares war against such bogus incarnations. The bogus propaganda put out by people claiming to be God has killed God consciousness all over the world. Members of the Krsna consciousness movement must be very alert to defy these rascals who are presently misleading the whole world. One such rascal, known as Paundraka, appeared before Lord Krsna, and the Lord immediately killed him. Of course, those who are Krsna's servants cannot kill such imitation gods, but they should try their best to defeat them through the evidence of sastra, authentic knowledge received through the disciplic succession.
