The words of persons in full knowledge of Brahman never become untrue. It is very wonderful that whatever Gargamuni predicted we are now actually experiencing in all detail.
The purpose of human life is indicated in the Brahma-sutra: athato brahma jijnasa. To make ones life perfectin the past, present and futureone must learn about Brahman. Because of intense affection, Nanda Maharaja could not understand Krsna as He is. Gargamuni was able to know everything, past, present and future, by studying the Vedas, but Nanda Maharaja could not understand Krsna directly. Because of his intense love for Krsna, he forgot who Krsna was and could not understand Krsnas potency. Although Krsna is Narayana Himself, Gargamuni did not disclose this. Thus Nanda Maharaja appreciated the words of Gargamuni, but because of his deep affection he could not understand who Krsna was, although Gargamuni had said that Krsnas qualities would be exactly like those of Narayana.
