Due to ignorance only the foolish mundane wranglers misunderstand the Supreme Lord and spread their foolish imaginations amongst innocent persons by foolish propaganda. The Supreme Lord Sri Krishna is the Original Primeval Personality of Godhead and when He was personally present before the eyes of everyone, He displayed full fledged Divine-potency in every field of activities. As we have already explained in the first verse of Srimad Bhagwatam, He is completely independant to act whatever He likes but all His actions are full of bliss, knowledge and eternity. Only the foolish mundaners misunderstand Him without any depth of knowledge about His eternal form of knowledge and blissfulness and as confirmed in the Bhagwat Geeta and Upanishads, His different potencies do work in a perfect plan of natural sequence, and doing everything by the exigency of His different potency, He remains eternally the Supreme independant. When He descends on the material world by His causeless mercy on different patterns of living being, He does so by His own potency. He is not subject to any condition of the material modes of nature and He descends as He is Originally. The mental speculators misunderstand Him as the Supreme Person, and they consider His impersonal features as inexplicable Brahman the great. Such conception of Him is also product of conditioned life, because they cannot go beyond their own personal capacity. Therefore, one who brings about the Lord on the level of one's limited potency is only a common man. Such man cannot be convinced that the Personality of Godhead is always unaffected by the modes of material nature. They cannot understand that the Sun is always unaffected by the contamination of infectious matter. Why it is so because they compare everything from the stand point of experimental knowledge of their ownselves. As such when the Lord is found to act like an ordinary person in the matter of tieing Himself in matrimonial bondage, they consider the Lord like one of them with poor fund of knowledge of the fact that the Lord can marry also at once sixteen thousands of wives or more than that. Due to poor fund of knowledge they accept one side of the picture while disbelieving the other. This means that due to ignorance only they always think of Lord Krishna as one of them and make their own conclusions which are absurd and unauthentic from the version of the SRIMAD BHAGWATAM. #/div# please wait #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_37"#TEXT 37#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#tam ayaṁ manyate loko#/dd# #dd#hy asaṅgam api saṅginam#/dd# #dd#ātmaupamyena manujaṁ#/dd# #dd#vyāpṛṇvānaṁ yato 'budhaḥ#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#tam#/i#—unto Lord Kṛṣṇa; #i#ayam#/i#—all these (common men); #i#manyate#/i#—do speculate within the mind; #i#lokaḥ#/i#—the conditioned souls; #i#hi#/i#—certainly; #i#asaṅgam#/i#—unattached; #i#api#/i#—in spite of; #i#saṅginam#/i#—affected; #i#ātma#/i#—self; #i#aupamyena#/i#—by comparison with the self; #i#manujam#/i#—ordinary man; #i#vyāpṛṇvānam#/i#—being engaged in; #i#yataḥ#/i#—because; #i#abudhaḥ#/i#—foolish because of ignorance. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# The common materialistic conditioned souls speculate that the Lord is one of them.

The Supreme Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the original primeval Personality of Godhead, and when He was personally present before the eyes of everyone, He displayed full-fledged divine potency in every field of activities. As we have already explained in the first verse of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, He is completely independent to act however He likes, but all His actions are full of bliss, knowledge and eternity. Only the foolish mundaners misunderstand Him, unaware of His eternal form of knowledge and bliss, which is confirmed in the Bhagavad-gītā and Upaniṣads. His different potencies work in a perfect plan of natural sequence, and doing everything by the agency of His different potencies, He remains eternally the supreme independent. When He descends on the material world by His causeless mercy to different living beings, He does so by His own potency. He is not subject to any condition of the material modes of nature, and He descends as He is originally. The mental speculators misunderstand Him as the Supreme Person, and they consider His impersonal features as inexplicable Brahman to be all.
