Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, has no material body, yet He appears as a human being. For how many years did He live with the descendants of Vrsni? How many wives did He marry, and for how many years did He live in Dvaraka?
In many places the Supreme Personality of Godhead is described as sac-cid-ananda-vigraha [Bs. 5.1], possessing a spiritual, blissful body. His bodily feature is narakrti, that is, exactly like that of a human being. Here the same idea is repeated in the words manusam asritya, which indicate that He accepts a body exactly like that of a man. Everywhere it is confirmed that Krsna is never nirakara, or formless. He has His form, exactly like that of a human being. There is no doubt about this.
