• I'm thinking
    That it is VISHNU who's bodily luster is blindingly affolgent. Krishna is a two-armed form with much less outwards supierer Intergraty. As I understand it Krishna appears much more like a mortal than Vishnu!?
  • If we cannot see his with his glaring bodily Ray's how did we know he is blackish?

      Hare Krsna Adithyan Rajeev prabhu,


      Please introduce yourself - where are you from? Associated with ISKCON temple of which area? What is your sadhana level - number of rounds chanted, since when, books read, part of which congregation preaching?

      We know He is blackish because of reference of scriptures like Srimad Bhagawatam. Devotees like Dhruv Maharaj could go beyond the brahmajyoti and actually see the lord.

  • Hare Krsna
    The form of the Lord cannot be seen because of the glaring effulgence which is His own bodily rays.
    We understand from Brahma-samhita that there are innumerable forms, ananta rupam.
    The blackish form of the Lord which is holding a flute and bent in three places.
    Yam syamasundaram acintya rupam
    Govindam adi purusam tam aham bhajami.
    This is the eternal form which is eternally manifest in Goloka Vrandavana.
  • Hare Krishna prabhu,

    I can think of the following when I think of the form:

    1. He will have one constant form which would resemble the age of 15-16.

    2. He will vary His form for different devotees. For example for Yashoda mayi, He can be just 2-3 years old boy. For the rasa leela with the gopies He can be 7-8 old. As such we can't limit Krishna to specific form and leela as that would be limiting His potency and capabilities. So He can display various forms from time to time.

    Hope this answers.

    Hari bol.

    YS Ratnadeep.
