HARE KRSNA !!

DEAR DEVOTEES ,

                             

                                please accept my humble pranaams ! i have a doubt - please clear it -for only you all and he can !

my question is that if krsna is the source of Sriman Narayana,  as stated in sri BRHAMA SAMHITA (yasyaika-niçvasita-kälam athävalambya jévanti loma-vilajä jagad-aëòa-näthäù viñëur mahän sa iha yasya kalä-viçeño govindam ädi-puruñaà tam ahaà bhajämi ) , THEN , WHEN KRSNA APPEARED ON THIS PLANET , HOW DID HE APPEAR AS a four armed baby ? ( as this is a form of narayana,?) 

i would be greatfull if this illusion of mine is clarified 

yours humbly ,,,,,, 

servant

    Srila Prabhupada writes that Krsna is the First ''Narayana". 

    The description he gives is like this:

    Krsna expands into Balarama who is the first expansion.

    Balarama expands into the first quadruple expansion of Vasudeva, Sankarasana, Pradyumna and Aniruddha from Whom comes the first Narayana.

    The first Narayana again expands into the second quadruple expansions from Whom comes the second Narayana and so on so forth.

    The Visnu-tattva is unlimited but we see that Krsna is the original Personality of Godhead from Whom everything expands.

    In other words all the functions of any Personality of Godhead are included in the Transcendental Body of Sri Krsna.

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

    PAMHO.

    Yes, you are right. Krsna is the ultimate - the adi purusha, the original primeval lord, as evidenced in Brahma Samhita, by lord Brahma, the creator of all living being, himself. 

    At the same time Krsna appeared in 4 handed child form first, before taking the two handed normal child form. This iis because it is His divine wish to appear in 4 handed form or 2 handed form. He is not bound by any rules and regulations. 

    Haribol,

    Krsna is the fountain head of all other personalities of godhead. So it's not difficult for him to display these forms.
    Even in the pastimes of Chaitanya,He shows his Varaha form to his devotee. He also enacted the pastimes of Narasimha. So everything is possible for him.

    So if v can't accommodate how krsna can manifest the form of Hari, then v are imposing limitations onto krsna. Then krsna can't be considered as infinite or absolute.

    Infact it is required that krsna had to show his four hand form to make it clear to his parents and the world that he was not ordinary child,but the supreme lord. And moreover it is common for krsna to display his opulence in Mathura and Dwarka. But he doesn't show his opulence in Vrindavan, there he oly shows sweetness.
