(Kadamba Kanana Swami, June 2011)

As we understand from Srila Prabhupada’s explanation that, Krishna’s appearance is just like the sun. As the sun is rising and setting, it is not that actually the sun turns red in the morning and then turns red in the evening – as if the flame of the gas has been turned down, or something like that, and the colour changes. No! The sun keeps its same bright effulgence, but because the sun is disappearing from our vision, then from our perspective it appears to become reddish, and setting and so on. But the fact of the matter is that the sun is shining somewhere else!

One who flies can experience that. For example, if you fly from Australia, towards Europe and you kind of leave at sunrise, then you can have sunrise for ten hours! The sunrise just stays – that’s possible, you can have those kind of experiences. So a variable sun rise. It is from our own perspective that the sun has this reddish colour but actually the sun is always shining somewhere!

In the same way the pastimes of Krishna are always going on somewhere else. Krishna lifted Govardhana Hill here five thousand years ago on this planet. Now in another universe………….just right now, Krishna is lifting Govardhana Hill! In another universe – just now, Krishna is killing Putana! And again, in another universe, Krishna is killing Aghasura. Like that these pastimes of Krishna are going on eternally in unlimited universes, and all are simultaneously going on. By Krishna expanding himself like that, is not a problem……or difficulty at all!
