Krishna - All-Knowledgeable    


•Anyone with a material body cannot remember his past life, nor can he foretell his future life, nor can he predict the outcome of his present life; therefore he cannot know what is happening in the  past, present and future. But Krishna says:


vedaham samatitani vartamanani  carjuna

bhavisyani cabhutani mam tu veda na kascana


"0 Arjuna, as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, I know everything that has happened in the past, all that is happening in the present, and all things that are yet to come, I also know all living  entities: but Me no one knows." (Bhagavad-gita 7.26)


•In the fourth chapter of Gita, Krishna informs Arjuna that He instructed Vivasvan, the sun god, millions of years ago. But ArJuna inquired from Krishna, how He could possibly have instructed  Vivasvan, as Vivasvan was senior by birth to Krishna.Kl'ishna replied as follows:


bahuni me vyatitani janmani tava carjuna

tany aham veda sarvani na tvam vettha parantapa


Many, many births both you and I have passed.   I can remember all of them, but you cannot. O  subduer of the en-%    emy!" (Bhagavad-gita 4.5)

A liVlng entity forgets everything due to his change of bodv.but the Lord remembers because He does not change His sac* cid-ananda body. He is advaita, which means there is no dis­tinction  between His body and Himself. Anyone who is a con­stant companion of the Lord, like Arjuna, is certainly a liber­ated person, but he cannot be equal to the Lord. The Lord is called infallible  (acyuta), which means that He never forgets Himself, even though He is in material contact.
