If there is a picture on the wall of a room, everyone
in that room thinks the person in the picture
is looking at him. Similarly, in whichever way we look
at Kṛṣṇa He reciprocates. He is the most complete in
everything. He is the most complete in beauty, the
most complete politician, and He has the most complete
affection for His devotees. For example, Bhīṣmadeva
took a vow during the battle of Kurukṣetra, “I am not
the son of Mahārāja Śantanu until I can make Kṛṣṇa
take up a weapon.” Kṛṣṇa thus gave up His own
promise in the battle, just for the happiness of
Bhīṣmadeva. Therefore, how He is bhakta-vatsala,
how kind He is to His devotees!
