    To write something in addition to the wonderful replies.
    The term 'Bhagavan' is explained by Parasara Muni the father of Vyasadeva.
    'Bhago' means opulence and one who possesses all opulences in the superlative degree is Bhagavan.
    These opulences are six in number.
    All wealth, all beauty, all strength, all knowledge, all fame and all renunciation.
    Bhagavan is used to denote any personality who possesses all or some of these opulences.
    In the Srimad Bhagavatam sometimes even Narada and Lord Siva is referred to as Bhagavan.
    Only Lord Krsna is referred to as Svayam Bhagavan or the original personality of Godhead.
    Bhagavan is basically the last word in transcendence.
    Hari Bol!
