(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 18 August 2016, Zadar, Croatia, Balarama Jayanti Lecture)
Balarama is the elder brother of Krsna and also the direct expansion of Krsna. He is non-different from Krsna. In fact, the same Supreme Personality of Godhead, Balarama and Krsna, appear in two forms but in these two forms they have different moods.
Krsna is the supreme enjoyer; He is the one to whom all sacrifices are being offered to. Krsna is the controller of all the planetary systems and everything else, making him the supreme controller. In this way, Krsna is always the Supreme Lord.
Balarama on the other hand is the Lord, but in the mood of a servant. He is the supreme servant. He is always serving Krsna and it is said that Balarama experiences the greatest pleasure, even greater than Krsna. This is because there is no greater pleasure than the pleasure received in service.
