Krishna - All-Famous
•Krishna is constantly glorified in all the Vaikuntha
planets.Therefore one of His names is 'uttama sloka', one who is always
glorified by choice poetry.
Ananta shesha, the massive serpent bed of the Lord, has been glorifying the Lord with His thousands of hoods since time immemorial and has still not found an end to the Lord's glories. In the tenth canto of ShrimadBhagavatam the Lord says, "Even if a scientist may be able to estimate the number of atoms in the universe, no one will be able to estimate My glories."
A poet has sung that even if we use all the sky as paper, all the trees in the world as pens, all the oceans as ink and write the glories of the Lord, still they will be inadequate to even begin to describe the Lord's glories. In the Mahabharata, while glorifying Lord Krishna, Bhishrna chanted the Vishnu sahasra nama (1000 names of Lord Visnuj And each one of these names describes an inconceivable transcendental glory of the Lord.
Sometimes it is asked, "Krishna is known only to a small fraction of the people of this world. Then how can He be considered to be all-famous?" But we have to understand that as cornpared to the totality of creation, this entire material world consisting of millions of universes is just an insignificant speck. And just because He is not so well-known at present on a tiny planet in this insignificant material world does not decrease His fame because He is glorified eternally throughout the spiritual world by His innumerable devotees. And even in this material world, he is constantly being glorified in the higher planetary svstems. yam brahma vaninendra rudra marutah stunvanti divxaih stavaih "The Supreme Lord is constantly glorified by demigods like Brahma, Varuna, Indra, Shiva and Maruts."(Shrimad Bhagavatam 12.13.1) Moreover this material world is compared to a prison as those living entities who are rebellious of God are kept here. If some of the inmates of a prison in a country do not know about the prime minister of that country, does that detract from the glory of the prime minister? Not in the least. Similarly if a few living entities in this material world are not aware of the glories of Lord Krishna, that does not in any way affect His fame.
