" 'Apart from these sixty transcendental qualities, Krsna has an additional four transcendental qualities, which are not manifest even in the personality of Narayana. These are: (1) Krsna is like an ocean filled with waves of pastimes that evoke wonder within everyone in the three worlds. (2) In His activities of conjugal love, He is always surrounded by His dear devotees who possess unequaled love for Him. (3) He attracts the minds of all three worlds by the melodious vibration of His flute. (4) His personal beauty and opulence are beyond compare. No one is equal to Him, and no one is greater than Him. Thus the Personality of Godhead astonishes all living entities, both moving and nonmoving, within the three worlds. He is so beautiful that He is called Krsna.
Mayavadi philosophers, who have a poor fund of knowledge, simply dismiss the subject by explaining that Krsna means black. Not understanding the qualities of Krsna, these atheistic rascals do not accept Him as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Although the Lord is described and accepted by great personalities, acaryas and sages, the Mayavadis still do not appreciate Him. Unfortunately at the present moment human society is so degraded that people cannot even provide themselves with life's daily necessities, yet they are captivated by Mayavadi philosophers and are being misled. According to Bhagavad-gita, simply by understanding Krsna one can get free from the cycle of birth and death. Tyaktva deham punar janma naiti mam eti so 'rjuna. Unfortunately this great science of Krsna consciousness has been impeded by Mayavadi philosophers who are opposed to the personality of Krsna. Those who are preaching this Krsna consciousness movement must try to understand Krsna from the statements given in the Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu (The Nectar of Devotion).
