The Demigods cannot comprehend Krishna's Divine Qualities and Activities
In the Bhagavad-gita (10.2), Lord Krishna says:
na me viduh sura-ganah prabhavam na maharsayah
aham adir hi devanam maharshinam cha sarvasah
"Neither the hosts of demigods nor the great sages know My origin for in every respect, I am the source of the demigods and the sages."
Here it is stated by the Lord personally that He is the cause of 11 the demigods and sages. Even the demigods and great sages •annot understand Krishna; they can understand neither His name nor His personality, so what is the position of the so-called scholars of this tiny planet? No one can understand why this Supreme God comes to earth disguised as an ordinary human being and executes such commonplace and yet wonderful activities. We can actually understand Krishna, who is eternal, full of knowledge and bliss, simply by studying His words in Bhagavad-gita and Shrimad Bhagavatam.
The demigods are bewildered not only about the position of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, but also about their own positions. Because they have enormous power and incredibly long life spans, they tend to become proud and forget that the power which they have is actually coming from Krishna. Krishna is the reservoir of all opulences and is like the sun. All living beings, including the demigods, merely reflect a tiny fragment of the opulences of Krishna, just as broken pieces of glass reflect a few rays of the sunlight. So if a living entity forgets this, Krishna bewilders him, admonishes him and thus brings him back to the path of devotional service. In the Shrimad Bhagavatam there are many incidents of how Krishna established His supremacy and taught lessons to the demigods, when they forgot their actual positions. One such pastime is the Brahma-vimmohan lila.
