The benedictions were fitting in the sense that the Lord was playing the part of a human being as if a cousin brother of Maharaj Yudhisthir but they were unfitting also because the Lord is Absolute and has nothing to do with any kind of material relativities; He is Nirguna or there is nothing of the three material qualities but still He is full of transcendental qualities. In the transcendental world there is nothing contradictory whereas in the relative world everything is opposite number of the other. In the relative world white is opposite conception of black but in the transcendental world there is no distinction of white and black. Therefore the sounds of benedictions uttered by the learned Brahmins here and there appeared to be contradictory in relation with the absolute person but when they are accepted as application to the Absolute Person they lost all contradiction and became one of transcendental qualification. One example may clear the idea. Lord Sri Krishna is sometimes described as the thief. He is very famous amongst His pure devotees as the Makhan-Chora. He used to steal butter from the house of neighbours at Vrindaban in His early age. Since then He is famous as the butter-thief. But inspite of His becoming famous as a thief, He is worshipped as thief where as in the mundane world a thief is punished and is never eulogised. Being the Absolute Personality of Godhead everything is applicable to Him and still inspite of all contradictions He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"##p class="mw-empty-elt"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_19"#TEXT 19#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#aśrūyantāśiṣaḥ satyās#/dd# #dd#tatra tatra dvijeritāḥ#/dd# #dd#nānurūpānurūpāś ca#/dd# #dd#nirguṇasya guṇātmanaḥ#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#aśrūyanta#/i#—being heard; #i#āśiṣaḥ#/i#—benediction; #i#satyāḥ#/i#—all truths; #i#tatra#/i#—here; #i#tatra#/i#—there; #i#dvija-īritāḥ#/i#—sounded by learned #i#brāhmaṇas#/i#; #i#na#/i#—not; #i#anurūpa#/i#—befitting; #i#anurūpāḥ#/i#—fitting; #i#ca#/i#—also; #i#nirguṇasya#/i#—of the Absolute; #i#guṇa-ātmanaḥ#/i#—playing the role of a human being. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# It was being heard here and there that the benedictions being paid to Kṛṣṇa were neither befitting nor unbefitting because they were all for the Absolute, who was now playing the part of a human being. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# At places there were sounds of Vedic benediction aiming at the Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa.

In the transcendental world there is nothing contradictory, whereas in the relative world everything has its opposite.
