Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Even as one capable of walking may still take assistance of a stick, in the same way although the Supreme Lord Krishna is fully capable of creating all the universes on His own, He directs prakriti or the material substratum to fulfill this task. The Moksa Dharma states: One should not consider the Supreme Lord, who is the repository of all attributes, to be dependent upon others like normal living entities. Comprehending the Supreme Lord through seven subtle forms and five subsidiary forms those who are situated in equanimity achieves Parabrahman or the personality who manifests the spiritual substratum pervading all existence. In the Rig Veda is stated: The immeasurable power of the Supreme Lord does not get diminished or exhausted in any manner although He engages His external energy prakriti in creation, dissolution etc. In the Bhagavat Purana is stated: Each of the Supreme Lords attributes have their own innumerable attributes and innumerable forms. Why is the Supreme Lord referred to as Parabrahman or brahman? In the Atharva Veda it states: It is because He being the Supreme absolute truth, makes others realise the Supreme absolute truth. His power is paramount and multifaceted. Who else can compare or compete with His innumerable divine pastimes all eternally existing simultaneously. Even the four-faced Brahma who is capable of counting all the grains of sand in the world is unable to even speak of all the Supreme Lords lilas let alone perform any of them. O Supreme Lord no one is capable of describing all Your infinite attributes neither in ancient times or the present times. Prakriti is completely dependent upon the Supreme Lord who is verily the maintainer, the sustainer and the energiser of all actions. Dependent upon nothing but Himself the Supreme Lord by His own power and will directs prakriti to perform actions by which all the worlds in the all the planetary systems are created maintained and dissolved.
